Softball Sweeps Brevard With a Pair of Shutouts


SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba shutout Brevard twice in sweeping both games of a South Atlantic Conference softball doubleheader on Wednesday afternoon at Whitley Field.  The Catawba Indians won by the scores of 1-0 and 6-0 to improve to 24-10 overall and 5-1 in the SAC.  The Tornados fall to 14-16 and 3-5.

Emily B. Huneycutt (Locust, NC/W. Stanly HS) out-dueled Brevard’s Kayla Clemens (Sebring, FL) to win the opener.  Huneycutt, now 12-3, allowed four hits and walked one while striking out one.  She worked out of a bases loaded jam in the fifth, the only frame where Brevard got a runner past first. 

Clemens also allowed just four hits, but one was a leadoff home run by Emily D. Huneycutt (Oakboro, NC/W. Stanly HS) to start the Catawba fifth.  That lone run held up for the win.  Clemens walked two and fanned two.

Brittany Murray (Asheboro, NC/E. Randolph HS) won game two for Catawba, allowed two hits over her five innings.  She improved to 9-7, walking one and recording two strikeouts.  Murray missed game one, getting stitches after being hit over the eye in warm-ups.  Selena Ashley (Walkertown, NC/E. Forsyth HS) finished up the final two frames with hitless relief.  She walked one and struck out one.

Alli Justice (Bishopville, MD/Decatur HS) provided the early offense on a three-run homer with two-outs in the first.  Kelsey Burgess (Charlotte, NC/Gaston Christian HS/N. Greenville) led off the third with a home run and Alycia Stiles (Harleysville, PA/Souderton Area HS) hit a solo shot in the fifth to cap the scoring.

Stiles had two hits in game two, the only player on either team with a multi-hit game in either game.  Stiles also had a hit in game one.  Lauren Lewis (Concord, NC/N. Mecklenburg HS) and Tara Gibbs (Waynesville, NC/Tuscola HS) had a hit in each game for the Lady Indians.  Chelsi Mallory (Mechanicsville, VA) had a hit in each game for Brevard.
