The California University women’s softball team won its fifth consecutive game to start the season Sunday at the UNC-Pembroke Invitational in North Carolina. The Vulcans scored in each fo the first three innings and defeated the host team 4-3.

Winning pitcher Alex Sagl pitched three-hit ball over six innings.

The Vulcans took a 2-1 lead in the second when Breanna Morris doubled and scored on a fielding error. In the bottom of the third, the Vulcans added to the lead with a solo home run by freshman Lindsay Reicoff.
