Softball Picks Up Two Wins With Sweep of Montreat


SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba swept a softball doubleheader from visiting Montreat on Wednesday afternoon at Whitley Field.  The Lady Indians won by the scores of 4-0 and 7-6.  The Catawba Indians improve to 26-9, while the Lady Cavaliers fall to 4-11.

Lindsay Ettinger (Pasadena, MD) hurled the shutout in the opener for the Lady Indians.  She allowed five hits and struck out five with no walks as the senior improved to 12-4 on the season.  Ryann Baker (Rockwell, NC) put Catawba on top with a two-out single in the second, scoring Brittany Thornburg (Kings Mountain, NC), who reached on a one-out double.

Catawba struck for two runs in the third.  Jacqueline White (Mt. Ulla, NC) singled home a run, while Allie Marshall (Pleasant Garden, NC) plated a run on a groundball.  Jessie Whitesides (Yadkinville, NC) knocked home the final run with a two-out single in the fourth.

White doubled home the game-winner with two-outs in the sixth inning of game two, scoring Kathryn Geouge (Canton, NC) from first.  Mandi Pike (Burlington, NC) had tied the game for the Lady Cavaliers in the sixth with a two-out grand slam.

Geouge had snapped a 2-2 tie in the Catawba fifth as she connected on a three-run homer.  Geouge, White, Marshall and Baker each had two hits for the Lady Indians in the nightcap.  Pike, Haven Payne (Canton, NC) and Amy Vogel (Hays, NC) had two hits for Montreat.  Ettinger earned the win in relief as she sat down the final four batters after surrendering the grand slam.
