KANNAPOLIS, NC -- Senior Tim Smith (Walnut Cove, NC/S.

Ryan Query (Kannapolis, NC/Brown HS) put the Indians on the board in the first with a two-out double and also plated the first run in the third as Catawba went up 3-0 after three innings.  He knocked home David Thomas (Winston-Salem, NC/Ledford HS), who led off with a double and tripled in the third, both times. 

Thomas would double and score on a single by Craige Lyerly (Salisbury, NC/E. Rowan HS) in the sixth and Jerry Sands (Clayton, NC/Smithfield-Selma HS) capped the scoring in the eighth with a three-run blast.  Thomas enjoyed a three-hit afternoon, while Sands reached safely twice.
