Aug. 9, 2006

FULLERTON, CA - The Cal State Fullerton women's soccer team will host a dinner and give fans a sneak peek at the 2006 squad with its annual Blue & Orange intrasquad scrimmage on Saturday evening (Aug. 19) at Titan Stadium.

The barbecue dinner begins at 5 p.m. with the scrimmage to kick off at approximately 7 p.m. The cost for dinner is \$15 per person.

The two-time defending champion Titans return four starters and 11 letterwinners off of last season's roster which posted the finest season in school history at 19-4 overall and 6-1 in Big West Conference play.

Fullerton finished the 2005 season ranked as high as No. 11 nationally and became the first Big West school to reach the "Sweet 16" round of the NCAA Tournament, posting wins over UNLV and Southern California at home before falling to No. 6-ranked Virginia in Charlottesville.

Cal State Fullerton, recently picked by the league's coaches to finish second in the Big West in 2006, officially opens the season on Sunday (Aug. 27) at 1 p.m. against former Big West foe Idaho at Titan Stadium.
