Volleyball Sweeps in Saturday Action

Atlanta, Ga. – All-tournament team members Kayla Neto (13 kills, 3 blocks, 7 digs and 2 aces) and Bre Moreland (11 kills, 2 blocks, 8 digs and 2 aces) led the Titans to victory for the second consecutive match on Saturday as Cal State Fullerton dispatched Charleston Southern, 3-0, Saturday afternoon in both teams' final match of the Georgia Tech Courtyard Invitational.

Fullerton hit .265 as a team and got 12 additional combined kills from Leah Best (6 kills, .875) and Holland Crenshaw (6 kills, .312) with just one error between the two of them in the 25-17, 25-19, 25-22 sweep. It held the opponent to a .170 clip to improve to 2-1 on the year. Fullerton did not lose a set in two matches on Saturday.

Charleston Southern's Katrina Houston led the way for the Buccaneers with 8 kills and a .278 percentage. The Buccaneers are winless in their first three matches of the year.

Fullerton's  Gabrielle Dewberry led the way for the Titans from the back row with 10 digs in a match that lasted just 80 minutes. The Buccaneers' Sydney Tracy lad all players with 11 digs.

Neto and Best had three blocks each for the Titans, who edged the Buccaneers at the net, 7.0-6.0. Winter Davis blocked her share of four Titan attacks to lead the floor.
