Softball Sweeps Doubleheader at Limestone

Ettinger picks up wins in both games


GAFFNEY, SC -- Senior Lindsay Ettinger (Pasadena, MD) pitched Catawba to a pair of wins over host Limestone in softball action on Tuesday afternoon at Lady Saints Field.  The Catawba Indians won by the scores of 3-1 and 11-7 and improve to 11-3.  Limestone falls to 0-4.

Ettinger allowed just one run off seven hits as Catawba won the opener behind a 14-hit attack.  Jacqueline White (Mt. Ulla, NC) and Kathryn Geouge (Canton, NC) each collected three hits.  Geouge put Catawba on top with solo home run in the fifth.  Sarah VanBuskirk (Lutz, FL) increased the lead to 2-0 with a RBI single in the sixth.

 Limestone would score its lone run in the sixth on a RBI single by Christina Woolgar (Orangeville, CA).  Catawba added an insurance run in the seventh on a leadoff home run by Tiffany Farley (Greensboro, NC).  Ettinger would sit down the side in order in the seventh, striking out the final two batters.

 The Lady Indians would win a wild free-scoring contest in game two.  Limestone got out to a 2-0 lead as Candice Evans (Lexington, SC) and Jessica Brown (Inman, SC) hit back-to-back homers to open the second inning.  Catawba struck back in the third, scoring four times.  Kathleen Greenhalgh (Gresham, OR) doubled home a pair of runs to tie the score, while White and Allie Marshall (Pleasant Garden, NC) also drove in runs.

 Catawba put up another four spot in the fourth to take an 8-2 lead with White and Marshall each picking up RBI hits in the frame.  Limestone would close the gap to a single run as the Lady Saints scored five times in their fourth.  Brown hit her second solo shot of the game to start the inning, while Keisha Thompson (Union, SC) had a two-run homer.

 The Lady Indians answered right back in the fifth, benefiting from a pair of Limestone errors.  Jessie Whitesides (Yadkinville, NC) had the big blow with a two-run single.  Ettinger, who recorded the last out of the fourth, shutout Limestone over the final three innings.  She allowed four hits with four strikeouts.
