ABOUT LAST WEEKEND
The Titans couldn't have asked for a better start to the 2018 campaign, as they've rattled off six consecutive victories, with all of them being sweeps (18 straight sets) to move to 6-1 on the season. The Titans are a perfect 4-0 away from Titan Gym this season, thanks to their perfect run through the Terrier Invitational last weekend, earning sweeps over Manhattan College, Delaware State, Bucknell and St. Francis Brooklyn.
WHEN YOU'RE HOT, YOU'RE HOT
The Titans are on an epic run, as they've win six consecutive matches since losing their opening match. The six-match win streak is Fullerton's longest since it also won six straight matches in 2013. The Titans haven't won seven consecutive matches since boasting two such win streaks of seven or more games during 2010. Ironically enough, the Titans won the Big West and qualified for the NCAA Tournament that season. The Titans won nine consecutive matches to end the 2010 regular season. The 6-1 is also the seven match start since the Titans also began 6-1 to start the 2009 campaign. The Titans haven't begun a season 7-1 since 2006, when they got off to a 12-1 start.
SWEET, SWEET SWEEPS
The Titans have earned sweeps in all six of their victories this season, marking 18 consecutive victorious sets. The six straight sweeps is the most since Fullerton earned seven consecutive sweeps during its Big West Championship season in 2010.
RIGHT WHERE SHE LEFT OFF
Madeline Schneider is doing Madeline Schneider type things to begin the season. She leads the Titans in total points with 102, kills with 97 and kills per set with 4.22. The 2017 Big West Honorable Mention has led Fullerton in kills in each of its first three contests, including posting 20 kills in the season opener vs. Akron. Her 4.22 kills per set ranks sixth best in the Big West and her 97 kills is sixth best. She's led the Titans in kills in six of seven matches this season.
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 77 digs through seven matches rank 11th in the Big West, while her 3.35 digs per set also rank 11th in the league.
MORE TO COME?
Felicia Marshall notched her first double-double of her young career, recording 11 kills and 11 digs on Aug. 25th vs. Montana. She leads the Titans with two total double-doubles on the season. She ranks second on the team in kills (67) and kills per set (2.91)
FEZZEY TURNING IT UP
Tyler Fezzey is off to a great start so far this season, as she ranked second in the squad in total points with 84.5. She ranks third in kills and kills per set, with 65 and 2.83 respectively. She also leads Fullerton in total blocks with 18.
