Softball Season Ends With Loss to Tusculum at SAC Tournament
Marshall belts 15th homer in loss
CLINTON, SC -- The Catawba softball season came to an end with a 10-3 loss to eight-seeded Tusculum in an elimination game of the 2007 Food Lion South Atlantic Conference Tournament on Friday afternoon at the Presbyterian Softball Complex. The Pioneers improve to 29-24 and survive to face Mars Hill in another elimination contest on Friday afternoon. The fourth-seeded Catawba Indians end its record-breaking season at 41-19.
Tusculum jumped out to a 4-0 lead after an inning. The first three batters collected hits off Rachel Christian (Buckingham, VA) and Brie Griffin (Glendale, AZ) greeted Lindsay Ettinger (Pasadena, MD) with a RBI single for a 2-0 lead. Catawba had hopes of avoiding further damage after Jessie Whitesides (Yadkinville, NC) turned a fly out into a double play at the plate, but after a double and bunt single, Racheal Wilburn (Chucky, TN) drew a bases loaded walk and Jenica Fernandez (Phoenix, AZ) singled for the 4-0 edge.
The score remained the same until the fifth when Catawba struck for three runs on one swing from Allie Marshall (Pleasant Garden, NC). Whitesides singled and Kathryn Geouge (Canton, NC) doubled with one out and Marshall hit her 15th home run of the season with two outs.
The Pioneers came right back in its fifth on consecutive two-out, RBI doubles by Chrissi Wilkison (Lake Forest, CA)and Ashley Basilicato (East Patchogue, NY). Tusculum broke the game open in the sixth, again with two outs. Anna Johnson (Jonesboro, TN) and Mackenzie Loy (Knoxville, TN) had RBI doubles and Griffin homered to cap the scoring.
Megan DuBois (Chino, CA) tossed the complete game for the Pioneers and improved to 11-8. She scattered seven hits with a walk and six strikeouts. Tusculum rapped out 13 hits on the day with Johnson, Loy, Griffin, Basilicato and Fernandez all collecting a pair of hits. Geouge was the only Catawba player to get two hits.
