Softball season ends with loss to Wingate

ROCK HILL, S.C. - Wingate University exploded for seven runs in the fourth inning, as the Bulldogs vanquished Catawba 8-4 to move on in the Food Lion South Atlantic Conference Softball Tournament. Wingate (32-12) advances to play second-seeded Presbyterian College at 4 p.m. at Cherry Park, while Catawba College concludes its season at 27-25. Wingate's corner infielders, first baseman Sarah Carleton (Powhatan, Va.) and third baseman Carey Bumgardner (Mechanicsville, Va.) combined to go 4-for-8 from the plate with four total RBI. Catawba notched the opening runs of the contest in the first inning, as Stacey Handy (Advance, N.C.) scored courtesy of a sacrifice fly from Jacqueline White (Mt. Ulla, N.C.), giving the Indians a 1-0 lead. The Tribe would extend their lead in that inning to 2-0, after an RBI-single from Liz Corbett (Severn, Md.). Handy went 2-for-4 with two runs scored for the Indians. Corbett also had a productive day at the plate, going 2-for-3 with an RBI to her credit. The Indians would add another run in the bottom of third, after a White single to left center scored Jessica Rivera (Key West, Fla.), extending their lead to 3-0. White went 1-for-3 in the game, and knocked in three of Catawba's four runs. The Wingate bats, held at bay for most of the game by Catawba starting pitcher Shannon Handy (Advance, N.C.), exploded in the fourth inning as the Bulldogs plated seven runs on eight hits. Mandi Chester (Charlotte, N.C.) and Carleton hit RBI-doubles in the inning, while both Megan McPhail (Fayetteville, N.C.) and Bumgardner would notch RBI-singles. McPhail went 3-for-4 in the game with a run scored and an RBI. Wingate shortstop Cameron Langston (Goldsboro, N.C.) also went 3-for-4 in the contest. Wingate starter Ashley Green (Charleston, S.C.) pitched a complete game for the Bulldogs, scattering nine hits and fanning seven Indian batters. #####
