    On Friday, Point Loma Nazarene University of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics took on UCSD, splitting a double header.

    Down 2-0 early in the first game, the Tritons stormed back in the bottom of the seventh for the 3-2 victory. Jeanine Cordero scored the winning run off an Amy Metee single.

    UCSD ace Leea Harlan picked up the win, improving her record to 5-1. Kim Aggabao had a hit and scored a run for the Tritons.

    In the second, it was all Crusaders as the visitors won 6-1.

    Triton pitcher Christi Martenelli picked up the loss. Harlan picked up the lone run for UCSD.

    On Saturday against California State University San Bernardino, the Tritons picked up two more wins in an exciting fashion.

    In the first game, the two schools were knotted at three heading into the seventh and final inning. With Aggabao on base, Triton catcher Kristin Hunstead drove her home for the 2-1 win.

    Harlan again was on the winning end, striking out seven. Aggabao finished with two hits and a run scored.

    In the second game, the Tritons were behind 2-1 going into the home half of the sixth inning. Again it was Aggabao involved in the heroics and she drove in Cordero and Kristina Anderson for a 3-2 lead they would not relinquish.

    Martenelli picked up the win, striking out seven, and Aggabao finished with two hits and two RBIs.

    The Tritons now stand in second place in the California Collegiate Athletic Association with a 7-3 conference record and 10-4 overall.

    On Tuesday, the Tritons host two more games, facing Concordia University for a doubleheader on Tuesday at 5 p.m.
