Neto Earns First Career Player of the Week

Oct. 5, 2009

Irvine, Calif. - Cal State Fullerton freshman middle blocker/outside hitter Kayla Neto was named the Big West Conference Player of the Week after posting 28 kills in two conference victories last week.

The Titans went into the weekend a measly 6-97 all-time against their opponents Cal Poly and UC Santa Barbara, and walked away with a pair of sweeps, large-in-part to rookie from Clarksburg, Calif.

Neto committed just one error from the floor in 57 swings, good for a .574 attack percentage on the weekend.

On Friday night, the 6-foot-2 Titan scored a career-best 15 kills without an error (.600) and also posted a pair of blocks as the Titans swept Cal Poly, beating them for the first time since 2004 and just the second time in their last 24 meetings and handing Head Coach Carolyn Zimmerman her 100th career victory.

On Saturday, Neto committed just one error and collected 13 kills and a pair of blocks in the sweep of the Gauchos.

Neto is the Titans' second best hitter behind Saddler in total kills (138) and behind Alex Wolnisty in attack percentage (.288). She is the team's leading blocker with 51 total blocks and a 0.89 block per set average.

This is Neto's first player of the week nod and the second o the year for Cal State Fullerton (Erin Saddler). She is only the 14th Titan volleyballer to ever win the weekly accolade.
