Softball Splits Season-Opening Doubleheader At Coker


HARTSVILLE, SC -- Catawba split its season-opening softball doubleheader at Coker on Saturday.  The Catawba Indians fell 2-0 in the opener before coming back to grab a 5-2 win in game two.  It was also the opener for the Cobras

Meghan Cobb (Richmond, VA/Bird HS) pitched well in the opening loss, allowing just six hits and one earned run.  The offense managed just five hits and stranded eight runners.  The Lady Indians loaded the bases with two-outs in the seventh, but winning pitcher Shelly Catlett struck out Cassie Markham (New Port Richey, FL/Mitchell HS) to end the contest.  Kathryn Geouge (Canton, NC/Pisgah HS) had two of the Catawba hits.

Catawba collected 10 hits in the second game to help overcome three errors and back the pitching of freshman Jamie Wells (Hebron, MD/Mardela HS).  Wells scattered just four hits with four walks, but allowed no earned runs.

Callie Gordy (Oak Ridge, NC/NW Guilford HS) drove home the initial run in the second for Catawba with the first of her two hits in the nightcap.  Markham singled home a second run for a 2-0 lead after an inning and a half.  Gordy made it 3-0 in the fourth as she singled home Alli Justice (Bishopville, MD/Decatur HS), who had led off with a double.

A two-out, pinch-hit single by Brittany Murray (Asheboro, NC/E. Randolph HS) pushed the margin to 4-0 in the sixth before Coker tried to rally.  The Cobras used a pair of two-out errors to cut the deficit in half before Wells got out of the frame and then tossed a perfect seventh to shut the door.

Justice also had two hits for Catawba in game two.  Allie Marshall (Pleasant Garden, NC/SW Guilford HS) had a hit in each game for the Lady Indians.  Geouge added a single in game two after her two hits in the opener.  Miranda Klees had two hits in each game for Coker.
