This week’s @pieology student-athletes of the week: @csunwwp & Mens Volleyball's Katelyn Fairchild and Arvis Greene!
Junior attacker Katelyn Fairchild posted career highs in goals (48) and field blocks (9) in her junior season with CSUN Water Polo in 2017. Finishing second on the team in scoring, Fairchild dished out 29 assists and accounted for 30 percent of her team's total goals for the year. She also scored twice at the Big West Conference Tournament to help CSUN to a fifth-place finish. Fairchild moved up to ninth in school history with 143 career steals after collecting 64 this past season.
CSUN junior opposite Arvis Greene was named to the 2017 AVCA All-America Team becoming the first Matador since 2010 to garner All-America accolades.

Greene had a breakout season for CSUN in 2017 as he led the Matadors in kills (359) and kills per set (3.99) while also adding career-highs in aces (13), digs (74) and blocks (51). The junior from Los Angeles (University HS) reached double figures in kills 18 times in 25 matches, highlighted by a career-high 26-kill performance in CSUN's 3-0 sweep over No. 7 Stanford.

#Tbt to Madeleine Sanchez receiving her 1st ACWPC All American Honorable Mention for the 2017 season! Sanchez tied Chari Christopher (2005) for the third-most goals scored in a single season (she was responsible for 42.8 % of the teams total goals) and she became just the second player to ever record 100 steals in a single season. Sanchez moved into sixth place in the school's all-time career scoring list with 175 goals while she climbed into fourth place in the all-time career steals list with 192 and up to 10th place in the career assists list with 109.  For her efforts, Sanchez was awarded All-Big West First Team honors and ACWPC All-America Honorable Mention both for the first time in her career. What a performance!!💪🏼💪🏼#GoMatadors #RocktheRed #CSUN
