Softball Limits Brevard to One Run During Doubleheader Sweep


BREVARD, NC -- Catawba recorded its second straight doubleheader sweep of the weekend as it defeated host Brevard twice in South Atlantic Conference softball action on Sunday afternoon at the BC Softball Field.  The Catawba Indians improve to 23-15 overall and 6-4 in the SAC, winning by the scores of 1-0 and 6-1.  The Tornados fall to 24-13 and 4-6.

Emily Huneycutt (Locust, NC/W. Stanly HS) threw a shutout in the opener and limited Brevard to five hits with only one walk as the freshman improved to 12-7.  Brevard had runners at second and third with one out in the fourth, but Tara Gibbs (Waynesville, NC/Tuscola HS) picked off the runner at third and Huneycutt got the final out.  The Tornados got the tying run to third in the seventh with two outs, but Huneycutt induced a ground out to end the game.

Kayla Myers (Bryson City, NC/Swain Co. HS) drove in the lone run of the game as she hit plated Mollie Kovalcin (Latrobe, PA/Greater Latrobe HS) with a RBI ground ball.  Kovalcin had led off with a single then Carly Sabat (Warren, OH/Howland HS) was hit by a pitch.  Amanda Terry (Cordova, NC/Richmond Senior HS) had a bunt single before Myers’ drove home the run.

A four-run second inning keyed Catawba’s sweep.  Tied at 1-1, Terry drove a run in on a misplayed grounder and Kovalcin scored on a wild pitch for a 3-1 lead.  Myers singled home two more to push the Lady Indian advantage to 5-1.

That was enough support for Brittany Murray (Asheboro, NC/E. Randolph HS), who surrendered just four hits in upping her mark to 11-8.  Murray walked one and struck out five.  She allowed a single run on a solo homer by Chelsi Mallory with two outs in the first inning.

Myers picked up another RBI in the seventh and drove in four of Catawba’s seven runs on the day.  Terry had two hits and scored two runs in game two.  Sabat also scored twice in the nightcap. 

Mallory and Sarah Carlos each had two hits for Brevard in the second game.  Meredith Davenport had two hits for the Tornados in the opener.  Martika Elmore (13-7) took the loss in the opener despite allowing just one unearned run off five hits.  She walked three and fanned eight.
