Against Lenoir-Rhyne, the Lady Indians took a 1-0 lead in the third inning when Ashlee Rhoades scored on a fielder's choice. The game then remained scoreless until the seventh when Catawba plated four runs to make the final score 5-0. Shannon Handy hit a solo homerun to start the inning and then Stacey Handy singled to left field to score Jenn Mehl. Jessica Rivera then singled down the right field line to score Rhoades. Liz Corbett ended the scoring when she hit a sacrifice fly to score Stacey Handy. Stacey Handy led the Indians going 2-for-4 with a run scored and a RBI.
