On April 1, softball headed to Turlock, California to compete in the Tournament of the Champions. The Eagles faced off against Central Washington University and Western Washington University, winning both games with an identical score of 1-0.
IN THE FIFTH
The Eagles faced off against CWU to start the day off on Friday. Biola was led by redshirt sophomore right-handed pitcher Raylene Roybal. The first four innings were quiet as both teams remained scoreless. At the bottom of the fifth inning redshirt junior left-handed pitcher Jennifer Morinishi safely made it to first base on a fielder’s choice, sending in freshman utility player Hailey Paull to score the one and only point for the Eagles.
The remainder of the competition remained quiet and the Eagles were victorious, 1-0.

The Eagles won the game overall, 1-0.
