Cobb and Geouge Lift Softball to Sweep of Limestone

SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba swept a doubleheader from visiting Limestone in softball action on Thursday afternoon at Whitley Field, winning by the scores of 2-0 and 4-3.  Meghan Cobb (Richmond, VA/Lloyd Bird HS) tossed a shutout in the opener, while Kathryn Geouge (Canton, NC/Pisgah, NC) led off the seventh with a home run to win game two for Catawba.  The Catawba Indians improve to 7-1, while the Saints fall to 3-9.

Catawba scored the only runs of the opening game in the fourth inning.  Sarah VanBuskirk (Lutz, FL/Wesley Chapel HS) reached to lead off the frame when her line drive to center was misplayed.  Ryann Baker (Rockwell, NC/E. Rowan HS) followed with a run-scoring double and Erin Witalison (Gold Hill, NC/Gray Stone Day) doubled her home with one out.

Cobb made the runs stand up as she tossed her second straight shutout to improve to 4-0.  The freshman scattered eight hits with no walks and seven strikeouts.  Jessie Whitesides (Yadkinville, NC/Homeschooled) had the other Lady Indian hit of the opener with a first-inning single.  Brittany Owen (Pasadena, MD) had three hits for the Saints, while Jordan Goodman (Mississaugua, Ontario, CANADA) and Keisha Thompson (Union, SC) each had two hits.

Limestone benefitted from three Catawba errors to grab a 2-0 lead after two innings of the nightcap.  Goodman drove home the second run on a sacrifice fly.   The Lady Indians picked up an unearned run of their own in the third on an RBI double by Geouge then took the lead in the fourth on a two-run homer by Allie Marshall (Pleasant Garden, NC/SW Guilford HS).

The Saints tied the game in the sixth as has Heather Mills (Richmond, VA) singled home a run with one out.  Limestone loaded the bases on a pair of walks after the single, but Cobb entered and got a pop up and come-backer to end the frame.  Geouge then hit a 2-1 pitch to left-center to end the contest to open the seventh.

Geouge collected three hits in the nightcap for Catawba and Cobb allowed just one hit with a pair of strikeouts in relief to grab her fifth win without a loss.  Thompson had two more hits for Limestone.
