The Hawaii Pacific softball team earned a doubleheader split against Cal State University-San Marcos yesterday in Kaneohe.
Chante Tesoro scored on an error in the sixth inning for the winning run in the 1-0 opener, but the Sea Warriors fell 4-3 in the second game.
Tesoro hit a one-out triple in the bottom of the seventh, but HPU’s bid to tie failed.
