GREENEVILLE, TN -- Catawba and Tusculum split a South Atlantic Conference softball doubleheader on Saturday afternoon at Edmonds Field.

Jacqueline White (Mt. Ulla, NC) had a monster day for the Lady Indians, going 6-for-7 with seven RBI. She had three doubles and a home run in the doubleheader. The junior helped Catawba to an early 3-0 lead in the opener with RBI doubles in the first and third innings and scored herself in the third on a single by Allie Marshall (Pleasant Garden, NC).
Tusculum cut the margin to 3-2 in the third then erupted for five runs in the fifth after two were out. Judith Saavedra (Phoenix, AZ) drew a two-out walk, stole second and scored the tying run on a single by Anna Johnson (Jonesborough, TN). Chrissy Wilkison (Lake Forest, CA) doubled home the go-ahead run, while Ashley Basilicato (East Patchogue, NY) doubled home the final two runs.
Kassie Killion (Coolidge, AZ) earned the win in relief, tossing three shutout innings and allowing just two hits. White was 3-for-3 for Catawba, while Wilkison and Mackenzie Loy (Knoxville, TN) each had two hits for the Pioneers.
Catawba used a five-run second inning to grab control of the second game. Kathryn Geouge (Canton, NC) had a RBI double, while White clubbed a three-run homer. White added a two-run double in the sixth as Catawba moved ahead 9-0.
Rachel Christian (Buckingham, VA) shutout the Pioneers for five innings, but Tusculum rallied for five runs in their sixth. Christian allowed a double and single to open the frame and was relieved by Lindsay Ettinger (Pasadena, MD). Ettinger was able to register two outs, but allowed three hits and a walk with Christian returning to record the final out of the inning.
Wilkison homered to lead off the seventh, but Christian retired the final three batters to improve to 13-5. White was 3-for-4 for the Lady Indians, while Geouge and Brittany Thornburg (Kings Mountain, NC) each had two hits and scored two runs. Wilkison and Basilicato each had two hits for the Pioneers.
