The Cal State Northridge softball team (12-18) dealt with a long weekend as the team went 0-3 against No. 9 Arizona. The Wildcats slaughtered the Matadors 8-0 to open the three-game series on Friday. Saturday’s match was no walk in the park either as CSUN’s attempt to even the series ended in a 10-1 defeat. In the final game, the Matadors scored five runs, but was not enough as the Wildcats ended the game with 16 runs and a sweep of the series.

Freshman Lorraine Cheung is currently 11-5 in singles competition, which is second on the team. Next, the team goes head-to-head with Portland on Friday.
