Softball Settles For Doubleheader Split With Glenville State


SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba and visiting Glenville State split a softball doubleheader on Sunday afternoon at Salisbury Community Park.  The Catawba Indians won the opener 9-3, while the Pioneers got a 4-3 victory in eight innings in the nightcap.  Catawba stands at 5-3 and Glenville State is 2-4.

The Lady Indians scored four times in the first inning of the opener, including two on a single by freshman Tara Gibbs (Waynesville, NC/Tuscola HS).  Allie Marshall (Pleasant Garden, NC/SW Guilford HS) gave Catawba insurance runs in the fifth with a bases-clearing triple for a 7-2 lead.

Brittany Murray (Asheboro, NC/E. Randolph HS) improved to 4-0 as she allowed three runs off six hits.  She walked seven and struck out eight.  Murray left the bases loaded in both the first and second innings, allowing just a single run in those frames.  Alli Justice (Bishopville, NC/Decatur HS) had three hits for Catawba in game one.

Glenville State pushed three runs across in the first inning of the nightcap off Catawba freshman starter Kelsie Hudson (Mechanicsville, VA/Lee-Davis HS).  The first four batters reached and Sara McFarland singled home the first run.  Tia Via put down a squeeze bunt and Christie Hittel hit a sacrifice fly for the 3-0 lead.

Hudson kept the Pioneers off the board until she left in the sixth, allowing the Lady Indians to rally.  Catawba pulled even in the fourth on a solo home run by Khourtni Hester (Waldorf, MD/McDonough HS).  Hester drove in two runs in the game one win.

Both teams stranded runners in scoring position in the late innings and the game went to extra frames and the international tiebreaker.  The Pioneers plated their run with a groundout to the left side to move pinch-runner Karly Eskew to third then Raquel Williams squeezed home the run.  Catawba lost its free runner in the eighth when Callie Gordy (Oak Ridge, NC/Pisgah HS) over slid third attempting to steal.

Jessica Fedor earned the win for Glenville State.  She went all eight innings, allowing two earned runs off eight hits.  Chelsea Claypole (Versailles, MO/Morgan Co. HS/Three Rivers CC) took the loss, but did not give up an earned run over her two and two-thirds innings.  Justice added two more hits in the nightcap.  Marshall also had two hits.
