Carolyn Kittell, a highly touted setter from Laguna Beach has decided to transfer to the University of Oklahoma.
Her strong play in the middle earned her All-Freshman Big West Conference Honors and she was also named second-team All-Big West.
Kittell averaged almost 12 assists per game as she played in every match during the season.
Kittell also excelled on the defensive end leading the team in digs with 380 and accumulating a 3.5 per-game dig average.
Meanwhile, the Titan coaching staff is currently looking ahead to the upcoming spring season which begins March 21 and toward next fall.
"We prefer to concentrate on the positive," Head Coach Mary Ellen Murchison said. "We just wrapped up signing three really good players and we are working on signing a setter."
Murchison said she is recruiting Kittell's replacement, but also added that current player Allison Anderson can handle setting duties.
Murchison said Kittell's departure is part of college athletics.
"The nature of Division I volleyball is that players come and go," Murchison said.
In addition to Kittell, the Titans also lost four seniors in all-time assist leader Blackler, second team All-Big West selection Lacretia Smith, four-year player Stephanie Cargill and Stephanie Wichmann.
