A LOOK BACK AT THE 2013 TITANS

Fullerton will return to the court after completing one of its most successful seasons in recent history. The Titans finished the year with 11 wins – the most for the program since 2004.

In addition, Fullerton's four league victories in 2013 represented CSF's highest total since the Big West began round-robin play in 2006. 

ABOUT COACH MATIAS

First year head coach Dianne Matias, who is the fifth Fullerton women's tennis head coach since 1984, is remaining in the Big West Conference after serving as an assistant on UC Irvine's staff during the 2013 season.

The head coaching opportunity will be the second for Matias, who served as Maryland's head coach for the 2011-12 campaign. She spent the previous two seasons as the Terrapins' assistant coach.

During her time at Maryland, Matias brought in the 23rd ranked recruiting class according to TennisRecruiting.net. In addition, Maryland's top singles player reached the round of 32 in the NCAA Tournament, while the doubles pair also qualified for postseason play.
