Irvine, Calif. - Three Titans earned All-Big West Conference recognition as the league office released its 2007 honors as voted by the coaches Tuesday morning.
Junior Brittany Moore earned her second consecutive first team nod, and becomes the first Titan volleyball player to ever garner two such honors. Moore leads the Fullerton squad in kills and kills per game, and has collected double figures in kills on 20 occasions. She currently ranks third in the league in kills per game and is one of six Big West hitters with over 400 kills. The hitter from Orange, Calif. is also tied for eighth in the league in serving, posting 0.31 service aces per game. Moore also collected Big West Player of the week honors on Oct. 15, large-in-part to her career-high, 30-kill performance against UC Riverside on Oct. 12.
Sophomore Alex Wolnisty takes hoome the first Big West honor of her career, earning an Honorable Mention. The Riverside native has had an all around good year, ranking second on the team in kills and kills per game, while sitting just outside the league's top ten in blocking. Her season's best performance came on Sept. 11, when she posted career-highs in both kills with 18 (and no errors) and attack percentage with .720. The .720 percentage is still the best in the Big West Conference this season.
Erin Saddler finds herself on the All-Freshman Team, after posting impressive first-year numbers as the team's middle blocker. Her 109 block assists is the best single-season effort in the history of the Titan volleyball program, and her 123 blocks places her fourth on the single-season charts. In addition to her blocking, she has accumulated 220 kills and has posted the team's best attack percentage at .263. Saddler and Wolnisty are also two of three players to have played in every one of the Titans' 105 games this season.
The Titans are gearing up to finish the 2007 season with games against Idaho and Fairfield on Nov. 23 and 24 at Cal State Northridge. Both matches are scheduled to begin at 4 p.m.
