Biola softball kicked off their season with the first game of the Concordia Kickoff Classic. The Eagles went head-to-head against the Northwest Nazarene University Nighthawks for their first game of the spring season. The Eagles slid right in and won the game three to nothing.


The Eagles took an early lead at the bottom of the first inning when sophomore catcher Brie Nowak hit a single to right field, bringing in redshirt junior pitcher Jennifer Morinishi and sophomore outfielder Allie Beck to score. Nowak put the Eagles at a two-point advantage going into the second inning. 

Though the second inning remained scoreless, Biola quickly made some noise once again at the bottom of the third inning adding another point to the board due to a Nighthawk error, bringing in Morinishi to score. Biola left no room for the Nighthawks to score and ultimately won 3-0. Redshirt senior pitcher Paige Austin led the Eagles with 17 strikeouts against the Nighthawks.

Softball (1-0) will have a doubleheader on Friday, Feb. 4 at 1:15 p.m. versus CSU Chico and at 5:30 p.m. against Colorado Mesa University at Great Irvine Park. Stats from today’s game and a livestream for the next games are available on the Biola Athletics website
