Kovalcin's Grand Slam Keys Softball's Split With USC Aiken
AIKEN, SC -- Catawba played to a doubleheader split with host USC Aiken in softball action on Saturday afternoon at Satcher Field. Mollie Kovalcin (Latrobe, PA/Greater Latrobe HS) hit a pair of homer to lift the Catawba Indians to a 5-1 win in the opener. The Pacers took game two 3-2. The Lady Indians stand at 2-1, while USCA is 1-1.
Kovalcin snapped a 1-1 tie with a two-out grand slam in the top of the seventh to give Catawba the win in game one. Gina Gerone (Brooklyn, NY/Madison HS) singled to start the inning and Emily D. Huneycutt (Oakboro, NC/W. Stanly HS) reached on an error on a sacrifice bunt. After a pair of strikeouts, Amanda Terry (Cordova, NC/Richmond Senior HS) walked to set up Kovalcin's heroics.
Kovalcin put the Lady Indians on top in the fourth with a solo home run. USCA tied the game in the fifth on a home run by Lindsey Jones. Freshman Carley Tysinger (Lexington, NC/C. Davidson HS) got the win. She allowed one run off two hits and fanned 10.
Catawba scored twice in the first inning of game two to take an early lead. Gerone singled home a run and Kelsey Burgess (Charlotte, NC/Gaston Christian/N. Greenville) drew a bases-loaded walk. USCA chipped away at the lead as Jones doubled home a run in the third and Brittney Williams tied it in the fourth with a home run.
The Pacers took the lead in the fifth on a RBI single by Sara Montei. Catawba put a runner on in each of the last two innings, but failed to get them into scoring position. Taylor Morgan picked up the win of USCA. She allowed the two runs off five hits and struck out three.
Emily B. Huneycutt (Locust, NC/W. Stanly HS) took the loss for Catawba as she allowed three runs on six hits over four innings. Selena Ashley (Walkertown, NC/E. Forsyth HS) surrendered a hit, Montei's single, in two scoreless innings of work. She walked two and fanned two.
Softball plays its first home doubleheader on Sunday as the Lady Indians host Mount Olive on Sunday at 1 p.m.
