The UCSD Tritons claimed their first California Collegiate Athletic Association softball title Saturday, behind the pitching of Camille Gaito, who won both ends of a doubleheader against Cal State East Bay.
Gaito started and won the first game 12-2 and followed that up with a relief appearance in the second game, where the Tritons came from behind for a 2-1 victory.
The title accomplishment ensures some favorable postseason action. The Tritons will be the top seed next weekend in the CCAA tournament in Stockton, California. And no matter what the results of that tournament, the Tritons are sure to get an invitation to the NCAA West Regional tournament the following weekend.
Gaito began developing her talent in the Marin Girls Softball organization.
