COSTA MESA, Calif. – The billing featured two teams looking to capture their first win of the 2016 season and the 18th ranked Lions answered the call. Vanguard (2-2) swept both games over the University of Antelope Valley (0-4) by 7-0 and 13-6 scores. Kaitlin Estes (SO/Costa Mesa, CA) might as well have had sparks flying off her bat today as she recorded a stat line of 4-7 hitting, two RBI's, a walk, and four scored runs across today's two games. She led the team in hitting, but the overall offense came alive with 20 runs scored and 23 hits.
