Softball drops five games at Francis Marion Invitational

FLORENCE, SC -- Catawba College dropped five games against tough competition from the Peach Belt Conference at the Francis Marion Invitational over last weekend at Freedom Park. The five Lady Indian opponents had a combined record of 61-14. Catawba now stands at 10-12-1. In their opening game on Friday, the Lady Indians fell 10-2 to third-ranked Kennesaw State. Jackie Carson (Summerland Key, FL) put Catawba on top 1-0 with a RBI single in the opening inning, but the Owls capitalized on a pair of errors in the fifth to score nine runs. Only two of the 10 runs allowed were earned. Amanda Myers (Lynchburg, VA) had a pair of hits and drove in the second run. On Saturday, Catawba lost 10-1 to Armstrong Atlantic and 8-7 in nine innings to USC-Aiken. Catawba also drew first blood against Armstrong, but the Pirates scored five in its first and another five in the third. Annie Sells tossed a no-hitter for AASU with the only Catawba run coming when Val McDowell (Crofton, MD), who walked to lead off the game, scored on a wild pitch. The Lady Indians led 4-0 after an inning against USC-Aiken, but once again errors were costly to Catawba as all but two of the Aiken runs were unearned. Carson, Myers and Jen Ropp (Broadway, VA) all had two hits for Catawba, while Carson had a pair of RBI. Jessica Rivera (Key West, FL) was thrown out at the plate to end the game. Catawba was shutout in both games on Sunday, falling 4-0 to Columbus State and 5-0 to Francis Marion. Carson and Liz Corbett (Severn, MD) collected the two hits versus Columbus, while Carson and Rachel McCollum had the only hits against Francis Marion. #######
