On the heels of a remarkable 2013 campaign in which Cal State Fullerton improved its Ratings Power Index (RPI) a whopping 141 spots, (a national-best) the Titans will again host the nation's elite programs in 2014.
Single game event dates include visits from (2013 final rankings) No. 2 Tennessee, No. 21 UCLA, Grand Canyon University, Loyola University (Chicago), North Carolina, San Diego and Santa Clara, along with the full complement of Big West games. This year the Titans travel to No. 24 Hawai'i for their bi-annual conference trip to paradise.
Again, the Titans host one of the most prestigious tournaments in the country, the Judi Garman Classic, which for 2014 will feature 12 top programs, including No. 3 Texas, No. 4 Washington, No. 6 Michigan, No. 7 Arizona State and No. 8 Nebraska and includes Arizona, Fresno State, Houston, Long Beach State, San Jose State and Wisconsin.
The opening-season event, the Easton Tournament, Feb. 7-9, features No. 1 Oklahoma (the defending national champion team), No. 14 Kentucky, George Washington, Loyola Marymount, Pitt and Santa Clara. The Titans open the season playing Loyola Marymount and then will take on the Sooners in the night game on Feb. 7.
"We want Orange County fans to have the chance to see the best collegiate softball in the country and we have been aggressive in our scheduling," head coach Kelly Ford said. "The best way to see all the action throughout the year is with a season ticket purchase."
The 2013 team, under then first-year head coach Ford, finished third in the Big West Conference and notched a 28-28 season and posted four wins over top-25 ranked teams: No. 7 Missouri, No. 10 UCLA, No. 15 Hawai'i, and No. 21 Virginia Tech. Individually, five players earned All Big West honors and Desiree Ybarra was named to the NFCA All-West Region Second Team.
