Softball takes sweep over St. Andrews

LAURENBURG, NC -- Catawba outlasted host St. Andrews 3-1 in a 10-inning marathon Sunday then rolled to a 12-3 win in the nightcap to sweep the Knights in softball action at Knights Field. The Lady Indians improved to 2-2, while St. Andrews falls to 0-6. The first game featured a pitchers duel between Catawba’s Lindsay Ettinger (Pasadena, Md.) and St. Andrews’ Lucy Wolfe (Aiken, S.C.). Both pitchers held the competition scoreless during regulation and the teams were headed to extra innings with the international tie breaker rule in effect. The Lady Indians struck first in the top of the ninth when Jacqueline White (Mt. Ulla, N.C.) doubled to center field and drove in free base runner Lyndsey Gay (Cleveland, N.C.) to take a 1-0 lead. Allison Hendrix (Hickory, N.C.) started on second base for St. Andrews in the bottom of the ninth and was sacrificed to third by Mika Tanji (Honalulu, Hawaii). Amme Mason (Georgetown, N.C.) tied the game with the Knights only hit of the game, a single to right field that scored Hendrix. In the tenth, Katie Phelps (Prince Frederick, Md.) drew a one-out walk and moved to second on a groundout to put runners on second third as Jessica Rivera (Key West, Fla.) opened the frame at second. Janie Motsinger (Kernersville, N.C.) drove in the game-winning runs for Catawba with a single to center. Ettinger (1-1), who was within one out of a no-hitter, struck out three in the win while Wolfe (0-3) had two strikeouts for St. Andrews. The Lady Indians exploded for eight runs on eight hits in the second inning of the nightcap and never looked back. The inning featured two run homers by Phelps and Lacey Waldroop (Franklin, N.C.) and an RBI triple by Shannon Handy (Advance, N.C.). Sophomore outfielder Devane Rushing (Monroe, NC) cut the Knights deficit to 8-3 in the bottom of the third with a three-run blast to left-center. Tanji and Kristal Shelton (Yakima, Wash.) poked singles before Rushing’s homer. Catawba scored four unearned runs in the fifth to extend its lead to 12-3. Shelton kept the Knights hopes alive with a two out single in the bottom of the fifth, but a fielder’s choice ended the game. Shelton and Waldroop went 3-for-3 for their respective teams. Handy (1-1) picked up the win, while Mason (0-3) had four strikeouts in the loss. #####
