FULLERTON, Calif. – Cal State Fullerton women's soccer senior Nano Oronoz and junior Atlanta Primus were two of 13 student-athletes named to the 2018 All-Big West Conference First Team. Freshmen Kaya Hawkinson and Kristen Swales were recognized as well and named to the All-Freshman Team. It was announced by the league on Wednesday.
Oronoz played as a defender, midfielder and forward for the Titans this season and sometimes all three within the same game. She tied Primus for the team-lead in goals with six on the year while also dishing out two assists. Three of her six goals were game-winners. She also logged the second-most minutes on the squad for the season. It is the second consecutive season that she has earned first-team honors.
Primus was the straw that stirred the drink for the Titans in the attack as a central midfielder. She scored six goals and dished out three assists on the year, all three of which were to Oronoz. Primus scored the game-winning goal for the Titans at San Jose State. With 15 points (two for a goal, one for an assist), Primus led the team in points for the second straight year. She ended the year on a high note as she was named Big West Offensive Player of the Week and NSCAA Division I Women's Soccer Player of the Week after scoring a goal against UC Irvine and at Hawai'i.
Hawkinson led the team in minutes played and was a staple for the Titans in the midfield as she started every match this season. She supplied three assists to tie Primus for the most on the squad. Each of her three assists came on corner kicks as well. Swales was just behind Oronoz and Primus in goals for the year with five goals, including two headers off corner kicks from Hawkinson.
The Titans ended the season last weekend with a 2-1 win at Hawai'i.
