All the action will get under way Friday, beginning with the men's hammer throw at 9 a.m. JaQuan Scott, Emmanuel Martinez, and Steven Parsons will represent the Titans, as Martinez currently ranks ninth in the conference in the event, while Parsons has the 11th best mark and Scott ranks 20th.

Last weekend, Ostrowksi finished fourth in the decathlon overall and recorded a throw of 155-00 to finish sixth in the javelin.

Titan Women in the Big West Championships

Fullerton hopes this is the year it makes its resurgence to the top of the Big West Conference, as the Titan women haven't secured a top-four finish since the 2010 season, as Fullerton finished ninth in 2013, sixth in the 2012 and eighth in 2011. However, from 2006-10, the Titans never finished any lower than fifth place…Cal State Fullerton's best placing all-time came in 2006 where the Titans finished fourth and recorded a school record 107 points. Cal State Northridge was also the host school that season….Fullerton has placed fourth on three separate occasions (2006, 2009, 2010).
