SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The USD Softball team (4-9) split their doubleheader with Lehigh (2-6) Tuesday evening at the USD Softball Complex. Both games were tightly contested pitching duels; USD came out on top 2-1 in game one, and Lehigh avenged the loss with a 2-0 shutout in game two.

Jenny Lahitte was dominant in game one for the Toreros, throwing a complete game and allowing just one run with nine strikeouts. Lehigh threatened in the top of the seventh, with runners on first and second and one out, but Lahitte struck out the final two batters to end the game and pick up the 2-1 win for the Toreros.

The Toreros scored one run in the third and fifth inning to build a 2-0 lead. In the third with two outs, Dana Prelsnik had an infield single and then stole second. Tatum Schultz ripped a single down the left field line to bring Prelsnik home and give USD a 1-0 lead.

The Toreros added one more in the fifth when Danielle Mavridis brought home Olivia Sandusky on a double to deep center. That would be all the runs Lahitte (3-4) would need, who went on to pick up her third win of the season.

In game two both teams managed only three hits, but Lehigh was able to score two runs in the fourth inning when they sent eight up to the plate. The Mountain Hawks, who entered the inning without a hit, had their first two batters reach base via walk. Then Jessica Calvini got their first hit of the game, a RBI single up the middle. Carissa Zito followed with another RBI single, this one to rightfield, to give Lehigh the 2-0 lead. Cassidy Coleman stopped the bleeding by getting Alexis Watanabe to fly out with the bases loaded.

The Toreros had all three of their hits in the first two innings, but struggled the rest of the way against Lehigh's starter Ashley Quigley, who threw a complete game shutout to earn her first win of the season. Coleman (1-4) took the loss for USD despite allowing just three hits and striking out seven in seven innings pitched.

The Toreros return to action on Friday when they face Idaho State at 9:00 a.m. in the UC Riverside Tournament.
