Softball Falls Twice at Augusta
White delivers three RBI in the two games
AUGUSTA, GA -- Augusta State swept a doubleheader from visiting Catawba in softball action on Sunday afternoon at Jaguar Field. ASU won by the scores of 6-2 and 8-2. The Jaguars improve to 6-4, while the Catawba Indians fall to 9-3.
In the first game, the Jags jumped ahead with two runs in the first inning. The Lady Indians rallied as Jacqueline White drew a bases-loaded walk in the third and hit a solo homer in the sixth to tie the score.
A pair of errors in the ASU sixth by Catawba led to four unearned runs to give the Jaguars the win. Anna Tedder put Augusta ahead with a two-run single. Amy Dumas tossed a two-hit shutout while striking out 13. Callie Gordy had the other Catawba hit.
In the second game, Ashley Roberts keyed a four-run first for ASU with a two-run single. Allie Marshall drove home Jessie Whitesides for Catawba in the fifth to cut the lead to 5-1, but the Jaguars added three runs in their fifth to go up 8-1. White added a RBI double for Catawba in the seventh.
Tedder went 4-for-4 in the nightcap with a double and two RBI. Tedder also had two hits in the opener, while Paige Phillips and Jessica Matta had two hits in each game.
