THANK YOU SENIORS
The Titans honored five fantastic seniors last Tuesday, as Madeline Schneider, Cady Francis, Summer Kerins, Kyra Smith and Nastassja Bowman all participated in their final home game of their careers.
SWEET, SWEET SWEEPS
All six victories this season have come in three sets via the sweep. The six straight sweeps during the Titans' six-match win streak was the most since Fullerton earned seven consecutive sweeps during its Big West Championship season in 2010.
RIGHT WHERE SHE LEFT OFF
Madeline Schneider had been everything as advertised until she unfortunately saw her season come to an end after suffering a season-ending knee injury on Oct. 16 at Long Beach State. Despite this, she still ranks second on the team in total points with 222, leads the team in kills with 207 and kills per set with 3.23. The 2017 Big West Honorable Mention has led Fullerton in kills in 13 of 28 contests, including posting 20 kills in the season opener vs. Akron.
WELCOME TO THE CLUB
Madeline Schneider joined the 1,000-kill club after an eight-kill performance vs. Fordham on Sept. 8. She finishes her collegiate career with 1,077 career kills with 850 of them coming at Cal State Fullerton.
Newcomer Neena Dimas has been superb this year. She ranks 24th in the conference in total digs (209) and 12th in digs per set (3.07). She's been named to two All-Tournament teams this preseason, including last weekend's All-Titan Tournament squad.
Savahna Costello enters her sophomore season with high expectations after producing a stellar freshman campaign for the Titans. She's off to a fantastic start, locking down the libero position for Fullerton. Her 296 digs rank 11th in the Big West, while her 3.57 digs per set rank eighth in the league.
SHE'S OUR ACE
Senior Summer Kerins ranks 12th in the Big West in services aces per set (.26) and 18th in total services aces (20).
A STAR IN THE MAKING
Felicia Marshall notched her first double-double of her young career, recording 11 kills and 11 digs on Aug. 25th vs. Montana. She now has four on the season and recorded a career-high 20 kills in Saturday's match vs. Long Beach State. She helped lead the Titans to their first set victory over the 49ers since 2013.
TITANS CLEANING UP THE ALL-TOURNAMENT HONORS
Madeline Schnieder, Felicia Marshall and Neena Dimas all earned spots on the Terrier Invitational after leading Fullerton to a perfect 3-0 record. Haley Carmo earned a spot on the Rebel Challenge All-Tournament Team after her superb defensive weekend. Schnieder and Dimas have each made two all-tournament teams so far this season.
Fourth year head coach Ashley Preston returns to helm of the Titan volleyball program with some positive momentum heading into the season. She's already notched her career-high in wins with six.
The Titans boast 12 newcomers, including four transfers and eight freshmen, helping to make up Fullerton's tallest squad in head coach Ashley Preston's fourth season in Orange County.
MAD FOR MADDIE
Senior Madeline Schneider is primed for a breakout season as she enters her third and final season as a Titan. She earned Big West Honorable Mention accolades a season ago, leading Fullerton in almost every offensive category, including kills with 335. That mark ranked 10th highest in the conference a year ago.
