Softball Splits Doubleheader With Limestone
SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba and visiting Limestone split a softball doubleheader on Thursday afternoon at Salisbury Community Park. Limestone took the opener 6-3, while the Catawba Indians claimed the nightcap 6-4. The Saints now stand at 2-4 on the season and the Catawba Indians are 3-1.
Limestone jumped out to a 6-0 lead after two innings of the first game. Kayla Hamalainen (Surrey, BC, CANADA) capped a three-run first with a two-run homer. Jenna Guse (Pearland, TX) and Jordan Smith (Goose Creek, SC) had RBI singles in the second.
Catawba left the bases loaded in the second then cut into the lead in the third on a two-run homer by Allie Marshall (Pleasant Garden, NC/SW Guilford HS). Leah Quant (Charlotte, NC/Providence HS) held the Lady Indians to just three hits and struck out 15 in the win. Alli Justice (Bishopville, MD/Decatur HS) had a home run for Catawba in the seventh.
The Lady Indians had to hold off a late Limestone rally to earn the split. The Saints scored four times in the seventh, but Chelsea Claypole (Versailles, MO/Morgan Co. HS/Three Rivers CC) got the final two outs for the save. Lauren Myers (Blackstone, VA) got Limestone on the board in the final frame with a two-run homer. Guse and Smith drove in runs to trim the deficit to 6-4. Claypole recorded a strike out then hit a batter to put the tying run at first before getting the final out on a grounder to second.
Marshall put Catawba up 1-0 in the first on a fielder’s choice then Katie Huggins (Oviedo, FL/Lake Howell HS/Lake Sumter CC) homered in the second. Catawba added some much needed insurance in the fifth. After a leadoff walk and a sacrifice, Marshall was intentionally walked. Tara Gibbs (Waynesville, NC/Tuscola HS) made the Saints pay as she launched the first pitch from reliever Emily Wallace (Winchester, KY) for a three-run homer.
Catawba had just four hits in the nightcap and seven on the day. Marshall and Gibbs each had three RBI. Brittany Murray (Asheboro, NC/E. Randolph HS) improved to 2-0 with her win in game two. She allowed four runs on eight hits and had four strikeouts.
Guse had three hits for the Saints in the nightcap and four in the doubleheader. Smith Myers and Kelsey Kuykendall (Seneca Falls, NY) had three hits in the two games.
