Big Hitting Weekend Nets Doucette Big West Weekly Honors

Feb. 19, 2007

FULLERTON, CA - Cal State Fullerton junior Jessica Doucette was named the Big West Conference Player of the Week on Monday morning after a scintillating weekend at the Louisville Slugger Desert Classic hosted by UNLV in Las Vegas, Nev.

She is the first Titan earn player of the week honors this season and the second Fullerton player to earn weekly honors from the conference after senior Candice Baker was named pitcher of the week on Feb. 12.

Doucette hit .562 (9-for-16) over the weekend from the leadoff spot, including four doubles and six runs scored and extended her team-best hitting streak to seven consecutive games in the process.

She opened the tournament with her first three-hit game of the year against Portland State, including a pair of doubles and an RBI during the Titans' game-tying two-run fifth inning.

Doucette scored three runs in a game twice on the weekend against Seton Hall and Sacramento State while leading the team in average, hits, doubles, and co-leading the team in runs scored. She slugged .813 on the weekend and amassed a .611 on base percentage.

In addition, the junior was also 2-0 in the circle for the Titans with 11 strikeouts in complete game wins over Hawaii and Seton Hall.

Cal State Fullerton returns to the field on Wednesday night (Feb. 21) at 6 p.m. as the Titans host No. 1 Tennessee in their 2007 home opener at Anderson Family Field.
