The annual Hawk Wilder Tournament at the Glendale Sports Complex last weekend signalled the opening of softball season. The Lady Vaqueros split their first two games in the tournament with a shut out by the Palomar College Comets 6-0 and a win against San Diego Mesa College 4-2, but with half of the team’s players returning as sophomores, experience gives them a strong edge in the coming season.
