Strong Pitching and Terry's Homers Help Softball to Two Wins
SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba got a leadoff home run from Amanda Terry in each game (Cordova, NC/Richmond Senior HS) and excellent pitching from Emily Huneycutt (Locust, NC/W. Stanly HS) and Brittany Murray (Asheboro, NC/E. Randolph HS) to win a pair of softball games at the Catawba Invitational Softball Tournament on Saturday afternoon at Salisbury Community Park. The Catawba Indians opened with a 4-1 win over Shippensburg then followed with a 3-0 victory over Queens. The wins improve the Lady Indians to 11-5 on the year.
Terry’s homer in the bottom of the first looked to be all the support Huneycutt would need as she no-hit Shippensburg for six frames. Casey Baucom (Marshville, NC/Piedmont HS) singled home a run with two outs in the fourth for Catawba and Tara Gibbs (Waynesville, NC/Tuscola HS) hit a two-run homer in the fifth to stretch the lead to 4-0.
Shippensburg finally got to Huneycutt with one-out in the seventh as Taylor Weisman pulled a ball sharply through the left side for the lone hit. A pair of Catawba errors led to a run, but Huneycutt got a called third strike for the final out as she improved to 6-1. She walked three and struck out three.
Emily Estep had limited Catawba to just three this, but two of those cleared the outfield fence.
Murray shutout Queens on four hits to even her mark at 4-4. She walked one and fanned six. Terry led off the game with a home run, riding the wind tunnel for the second time over the right field fence.
A Queens error led to a pair of insurance runs for the Lady Indians in the fourth. Michaela Boyd (Concord, NC/NW Cabarrus HS) singled home a run and Murray delivered a sacrifice fly.
Seven players had hits for Catawba in game two with Terry collecting a pair of hits. Whitney Britt had two of the hits for the Royals, including a triple.
