Irvine, Calif. - Brittany Moore's impressive hitting provided a spark for the Cal State Fullerton Titans as they went 3-0 in the Four Points Titan Classic last week, earning her Big West Volleyball Player of the Week honors, for the week ending Sept. 3. The Titans, 5-0, stand as the last undefeated team in the league.
Moore's recognition as the player of the week is the first such honor for a Titan volleyball player since Lauren Goins did it on Nov. 11, 2004. Moore becomes just the sixth Cal State Fullerton conference Player of the Week in the program's 30 years of existence.
In the three games, Moore hit .395 from the field and blasted 42 kills, while picking up 15 blocks in the process. Moore committed just five hitting errors in 96 opportunities en route to the tournament MVP honors. The Orange, Calif., native posted 18 kills against College of Charleston for a season high.
The 5-11 outside hitter/middle blocker blasted 12 or more kills in each of the three contests to extend her streak to five matches with kills in double-digits this season. She is now leading the conference with a .414 attack percentage, committing just seven errors in 19 games.
The Titans return to the court on Tuesday, Sept. 5 when they travel to Los Angeles, Calif., to take on Loyola Marymount before heading to Albuquerque, N.M., for a weekend tournament. At the Comcast Lobo Tournament, CSF will face Dartmouth, UTEP and New Mexico.
