Former CBS volleyball star earns honors at Cal State Fullerton

Cal State Fullerton senior Kayla Neto, a former Christian Brothers star, has been named to the American Volleyball Coaches Association West All-Region team.

Neto, a native of Clarksburg, also recently was named to the Big West Conference First Team for the fourth consecutive year, marking just the eighth time in the league's history a women's volleyball player has become a four-time honoree.

The all-region honor is also the second for Neto during her four-year career at Fullerton. The 6-foot-2 outside hitter was named to the all-region team in 2009 after earning AVCA All-West Freshman of the Year honors as well.

During 2012, Neto led the Titans in averaging 4.33 kills per set (541), a mark that also ranked second in the Big West Conference.

Neto departs Fullerton with her name scattered throughout the record books. She holds career for kills (1,628) and points (1,918.5).

She is the only athlete in the history of the Cal State Fullerton volleyball program to be named to the to the Big West Conference four times and to the West Region team two times.

At Christian Brothers, Neto was named the Bee All-Metro Player of the Year in 2008 after leading the Falcons to to a CIF state Division IV championship finals (losing to Santa Fe Christian of Solana Beach) appearance. She made the D-IV state all-tournament team.

Neto also led the Falcons to four D-IV section titles and was a four-time all-Sierra Valley Conference selectee.
