Softball Finishes Off Mid-South Classic With Three Wins

Gibbs led the way with a .529 average and 7 RBI

SPARTANBURG, SC – The Catawba softball team finished up play at the Mid-South Classic with three straight wins to finish the tournament with a 3-2 record.  After suffering a 2-1 loss to Limestone and a 5-4 defeat to the hands of Montreat, the Lady Indians topped Georgia C&SU 10-9 before knocking off Coker 6-3 and East Stroudsburg 10-8 on Sunday.

Catawba managed just two hits in the loss to Limestone on Friday.  Katie Huggins drove in the only run in the sixth which cut the Lady Indian deficit in half, but Leah Quant set Catawba down in order in the seventh to preserve the win.  Huggins and Kristyn Funderburke had the two Catawba hits.

A five-run fifth at the hands of Montreat did in the Lady Indians in their opening game on Saturday.  Catawba rallied within a run in the seventh, getting RBI doubles from Tara Gibbs and Brittney Thornburg, but came up a run short.  Allie Marshall collected three hits in the loss.  Gibbs and Thornburg each had two hits and two RBI.

Catawba snapped its unlucky streak of one-run losses agaisnt Georgia College & State with a 10-9 win.  GC&SU ralled from a 7-4 deficit to take an 8-7 lead in the fifth then Kathryn Geouge tied things up with a fifth-inning single.  Catawba took the lead back in the sixth on a double by Huggins.  Sami Santoli got the save as she recorded the final two outs with the tying run at second.  Gibbs led the 11-hit attack with three hits.

Brittany Murray pitched the Lady Indians to the 6-3 win over Coker, allowing seven hits and striking out six.  Gibbs had a pair of hits and two RBI, while Carly Sabat connected on her first career home run.

Catawba wrapped the tournament up with a win over East Stroudsburg, banging out a dozen hits.  Murray got the win in relief as she allowed two hits and one run over three and a third innings.  Callie Gordy went 3-for-3 and scored a pair of runs.  Amanda Terry had three RBI on a bases clearing triple in the the first to stake Catawba to a 5-2 lead.
