WAGONS EAST: The Titans trip to Stockbridge will be the program's second furthest trek east for a tournament since the 2012-13 season when Fullerton traveled to Buies Creek, N.C. to participate in the Fighting Camel Fall Classic, a tournament the Titans would finish fourth overall. The Titans will stay out east and set a new second-best as they head to Browns Summit, N.C. next week for the Bryan National Intercollegiate.
COMING IN HOT: The Titans are coming off a third place team finish at the Fresno State Classic on March 7-8, a tournament that was shortened to 36 holes due to inclement weather. Martina Edberg scored her third top-five finish and fourth top-10 of the season, placing third overall after posting a 1-under 143, shooting a 3-under 69 in the final round. It was her fifth round scoring in the 60s this season. Nadine Rivera also collected her first career top-10 finish at the Fresno State Classic, tying for 10th place with a 3-over 147.
