Titans' Volk Earns Big West Weekly Honors

Sept. 6, 2010

FULLERTON, CA - Cal State Fullerton junior midfielder Casey Volk was named the Big West Conference's Offensive Player of the Week on Monday afternoon after earning all-tournament honors and helping the Titans upset ranked opposition at the 2010 Under Armour Invitational over the weekend.

Volk's first goal of the season two minutes into the second half on Sunday proved to be the game winner as Fullerton shutout No. 18 UNC Greensboro, 2-0, and she later added an assist on the team's second goal in the victory. The goal came on her only shot of the game.

The win was the Titans' first over a ranked opponent since 2008, snapping a three-match losing streak against ranked foes in the process.

Volk (Davis, CA/Davis HS) was one of three Fullerton players named to the all-tournament squad in the Titans' home event, joining teammates Jordan-Michelle Santos and Brisa Gonzalez.

Fullerton continues tournament play next weekend on the road in Los Angeles as the Titans will play eight of their next nine matches away from Titan Stadium. Cal State Fullerton is one of four teams at the USC Tournament where it will take on Northern Arizona on Friday (Sept. 10) at 1 p.m. before taking on Auburn on Sunday (Sept. 12) at 11 a.m.
