Softball gets two nine-inning wins at KSU Classic

MARIETTA, GA -- Catawba won two of four games at the KSU Classic softball tournament hosted by Kennesaw State over the weekend at Hobgood Park. The Lady Indians earned nine-inning wins over Armstrong Atlantic and Augusta State, while falling to nationally-ranked North Florida and Kennesaw State. Catawba is now 17-15 on the season. On Friday, the Lady Indians rallied for two runs in the bottom of the ninth to top Armstrong Atlantic 8-7. Jacqueline White (Mt. Ulla, NC) doubled home the tying run and scored on Lacey Waldroop’s (Franklin, NC) single. AASU had hit a pair of homers in a four-run sixth to tie the score at 6-6. Jessica Rivera’s (Key West, FL) two-run single and back-to-back RBI doubles by Katie Phelps (Prince Frederick, MD) and Liz Corbett (Severn, MD) had given Catawba a 6-2 edge in the fifth. Lindsay Ettinger (Pasadena, MD) earned the win in relief, allowing just one hit and one unearned run in two and two-thirds innings of work. Catawba fell 7-0 to 14th-ranked North Florida on Saturday morning. Catawba managed just one-hit, a two-out single by Shannon Handy (Advance, NC) in the sixth. Handy would score the winning run in the ninth inning against Augusta State on a wild pitch. A single by Ettinger and a sacrifice bunt by Lyndsey Gay (Cleveland, NC) staked Catawba to a 5-2 lead through six innings, but Augusta State rallied for three runs in the seventh to tie the game. Phelps had three hits for Catawba, while Ettinger worked out of a second-and-third no out jam in the ninth, striking out the final two batters. Ettinger improved to 13-8, going the full nine innings, allowing two earned runs on 11 hits with nine strikeouts. Fourth-ranked Kennesaw State blanked Catawba 8-0 in the final game. Brittany Matthews tossed a one-hitter as Gay led off the game with an infield single. #####
