BENCH MARK STILL WITHIN REACH
The Titans currently sit at 6-6 heading with still two non-conference matches remaining in Bakersfield and Cal Baptist. Fullerton needs just one non-conference victory to clinch its first non-conference winning record since 2013.
SWEET, SWEET SWEEPS
All six victories this season have come in three sets via the sweep. The six straight sweeps during the Titans' six-match win streak was the most since Fullerton earned seven consecutive sweeps during its Big West Championship season in 2010.
RIGHT WHERE SHE LEFT OFF
Madeline Schneider is doing Madeline Schneider type things to begin the season. She leads the Titans in total points with 190, kills with 179 and kills per set with 3.65. The 2017 Big West Honorable Mention has led Fullerton in kills in 13 of 16 contests, including posting 20 kills in the season opener vs. Akron. Her 3.77 kills per set ranks sixth best in the Big West and her 162 total kills are also sixth best.
There's no way the Titans are where they are without newcomer Neena Dimas' superb defensive play. She ranked 11th in the conference in total digs (160) and eighth in digs per set (3.20). She's been named to two All-Tournament teams this preseason, including last weekend's All-Titan Tournament squad.
Savahna Costello enters her sophomore season with high expectations after producing a stellar freshman campaign for the Titans. She's off to a fantastic start, locking down the libero position for Fullerton. Her 128 digs rank 18th in the Big West, while her 3.12 digs per set rank 12th in the league.
SHE'S OUR ACE
Senior Summer Kerins ranks 12th in the Big West in services aces per set (.28) and 16th in total services aces (11).
A STAR IN THE MAKING
Felicia Marshall notched her first double-double of her young career, recording 11 kills and 11 digs on Aug. 25th vs. Montana. She leads the Titans with two total double-doubles on the season. She ranks 25th in the league with 2.37 digs per set and ranks 10th in kills per set (2.88).
FEZZEY TURNING IT UP
Tyler Fezzey is off to a great start so far this season, as she's ranked second in the squad in total points with 147. She ranks 20th in the league in total kills with 115 and 19th in kills per set (2.45). She ranks 16th in the league in total blocks with 33 and 12th in solo blocks with four.
TITANS CLEANING UP THE ALL-TOURNAMENT HONORS
Madeline Schnieder, Felicia Marshall and Neena Dimas all earned spots on the Terrier Invitational after leading Fullerton to a perfect 3-0 record. Haley Carmo earned a spot on the Rebel Challenge All-Tournament Team after her superb defensive weekend. Schnieder and Dimas have each made two all-tournament teams so far this season.
Fourth year head coach Ashley Preston returns to helm of the Titan volleyball program with some positive momentum heading into the season. She's already notched her career-high in wins with six, just 15 matches into the season.

MAD FOR MADDIE
