Thornburg Collects Six Hits As Softball Sweeps Twinbill From Pfeiffer
SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba swept both ends of a softball doubleheader with visiting Pfeiffer on Thursday afternoon at Whitley Field. The Catawba Indians won the opener 11-6 and claimed a 1-0 shut out in the nightcap. The Lady Indians now stand at 4-2 on the season, while the Falcons fall to 9-3.
Erin Witalison (Gold Hill, NC/Gray Stone Day) broke a 6-6 tie in the fifth with a pinch-hit single as Catawba rallied for the win in game one. Kristyn Funderburke (Kings Mountain, NC/Kings Mountain HS) delivered a one-out single and pinch-runner MacKenzie White (Mt. Ulla, NC/Carson HS) stole second before moving to third on a wild pitch. Witalison then singled to left to bring home the go-ahead run.
Catawba led 3-0 after two innings, but Pfeiffer struck for six runs in the fourth. Bryttny Kreshka (Roseburg, OR) doubled home two runs and Martina Bullard (Godwin, NC) hit a grand slam with two outs.
