SAVANNAH, GA -- Catawba split a pair of softball games on Tuesday afternoon at the 2008 Smash Hit Softball Tournament being hosted by Savannah Art & Design College.  The Catawba Indians defeated Bluefield College 10-0 then dropped a 5-4 decision to Bethel (IN), ranked #16 in NAIA.  Catawba is now 12-6 on the season.

Against Bethel, Catawba scored twice in the top of the seventh to tie the score before the Pilots picked up the game-winner on a sacrifice fly by Kaitlyn Dubois.  Tara Blair led off the inning with a walk and went to second on a bunt single by Emily Kramer.  A wild pitch moved the runners up before the fly ball by Dubios.

Catawba scored the two tying runs in the seventh on just one hit, a RBI-single by Kathryn Geouge (Canton, NC/Pisgah HS) which tied the score.  The inning started with three straight walks and a passed ball to push across the first run of the frame. 

Bethel scored four times in the sixth to rally from a 2-0 deficit.  Kramer led off with a single and scored the first run on a double by Dubois.  Brittany Fisher had a two-run double to put the Pilots ahead.  Geouge scored in the first on a double play groundout and again in the sixth on an error.  Catawba was limited to just two hits, singles by Geouge and Jessie Whitesides (Yadkinville, NC/Homeschooled).

 The Lady Indians pounded out 10 hits in the five-inning win over Bluefield.  Brittany Thornburg (Kings Mountain, NC/Kings Mountain HS) had two hits and two RBI, while Carly Sabat (Warren, OH/Howland HS) had two hits and scored twice.  Megan Cobb (Richmond, VA/Lloyd Bird HS) and Rachel Christian (Buckingham, VA/Buckingham Co. HS) combined on a two-hitter.  Cobb allowed one hit with three strikeouts over three frames, while Christian allowed a hit and fanned one in two innings.

Catawba did the most damage in a seven-run second that included RBI singles from Thornburg, Callie Gordy (Oak Ridge, NC/NW Guilford HS), Geouge and Whitesides.  Khourtni Hester (Waldorf, MD/McDonough HS) had a RBI single in the third and Thornburg drove home a run in the fourth to cap the scoring.
