Softball Upended at Lincoln Memorial


HARROGATE, TN -- Catawba fell to host Lincoln Memorial 9-1 in softball action on Saturday afternoon at Neely Field.  Game two of the scheduled doubleheader was rained out.  The win ups the Lady Railsplitters to 12-22 overall and 3-6 in the SAC, while the Catawba Indians fall to 24-11 and 5-2.

Lincoln Memorial jumped on top early with four runs in the first inning.  Amanda Snow got things going with a two-run double.  Cierra Mudd also singled home a run in the frame.  Snow added another RBI in the second and the Lady Railsplitters led 6-0 before Catawba got on the board.

Catawba scored in the fifth, benefitting from a pair of LMU errors to get a run when Lauren Lewis (Concord, NC/N. Mecklenburg HS) singled home Emily D. Huneycutt (Oakboro, NC/W. Stanly HS).  That would be all the Lady Indians would get and Lincoln Memorial closed out the game with three more runs in the sixth. 

Taylor McGinnis collected three of 14 hits for LMU on the day.  Snow had two hits and three RBI, while Walz, Danae Reed and Bridget Eicher also added a pair of hits.  Kelsey Burgess (Charlotte, NC/Gaston Christian HS/N. Greenville) had two hits for Catawba.

Meghan LeFevor (7-10) earned the win for LMU.  She allowed one unearned run off four hits with four strikeouts.
