Cal Poly will square off against Cal State Fullerton tonight in Mott Gym in its last home match before taking to the road for four Big West Conference matches.

The Mustangs are coming off of a 3-1 loss at Pacific last weekend, the team’s first conference loss this season.

“Like all teams in the Big West, I have respect for that team,” Stevenson said of Fullerton.

Fullerton is right below Cal Poly in the standings with a 2-1 conference record and a .500 overall record.

The Mustangs are 20-3 at home since 2005 and have won 11 of the past 12 matches held at home.

The Titans are led this season by junior middle blocker Brittany Moore, who is averaging 4.34 kills per game and is currently third in the Big West.

Fullerton senior libero Julie Geissert is at the No. 2 spot in the Big West in sets and sophomore Cari Bailey has posted 22 service aces so far this season, good enough for No. 2 in the Big West.

Cal Poly continues to be led by junior outside hitter Kylie Atherstone, who holds the No. 3 spot below Moore for kills in the Big West.

Atherstone is producing 4.29 kills per game and has a .222 hitting average for the season.

Jaclyn Houston and Dominique Olowolafe continue to produce at the net.

Houston is averaging 1.39 blocks per game and Olowolafe is averaging 1.21. The two are ranked Nos. 2 and 4, respectively, in the Big West.

The match begins at 7 p.m. at Mott Gym.
