Softball Settles For Split With Mount Olive
MOUNT OLIVE, NC -- Catawba and host Mount Olive split a softball doubleheader on Thursday at Cassell Field. The Catawba Indians won the opener 7-3, while the Trojans won the nightcap 7-0. The Lady Indians are now 16-13 on the year, while Mount Olive is 12-9.
Catawba pounded out 14 hits in the opening win, getting three each from Ryan Baker (Rockwell, NC/E. Rowan HS) and Kathryn Geouge (Canton, NC/Pisgah HS). Jenny Jackson would limit the Lady Indians to just two hits in tossing the shutout in game two for the Trojans.
The Lady Indians scored a run in each of the first four inning of the opener. Baker led off the game with a double and scored on a sacrifice fly by Jacqueline White (Mt. Ulla, NC/W. Rowan HS). Jesse Whitesides (Yadkinville, NC/Homeschooled) tripled home Geouge with a two-out triple in the second.
Baker had a RBI single in the fourth, but Mount Olive cut the lead in half in its fourth on a solo home run by Aubrey Reinhart and a double by Karen Thornton. The Trojans closed within a run in the fifth on a single by Morgan Whaley. Meghan Cobb (Richmond, VA/Lloyd Bird HS) pitched Catawba out of further, stranding runners at second and third with one out, then shutout the Trojans over the final two innings to post the save.
Callie Gordy (Oak Ridge, NC/NW Guilford HS) had a single in the first inning of the nightcap and Sarah VanBuskirk (Lutz, FL/Wesley Chapel HS) doubled in the fifth for the only hits for Catawba. The first five Trojans reached base in the fourth to break open a scoreless game. Reinhart and Courtney Wallace had RBI singles to put Mount Olive on the board and Kelly Minshew capped the inning with a two-run triple.
Reinhart had three hits and drove in two runs in the win. Jackson struck out eight and walked one in improving to 8-4. Rachel Christian (Buckingham, VA/Buckingham County HS) allowed two runs on four hits in the second game over four and two-thirds innings. She had both decisions on the day and stands at 3-3.
