11_SB_TerryAmandaQUE

SPARTANBURG, SC -- Catawba picked up three wins over four games this past weekend at the Mid-South Classic at Tyger River Park.  Catawba opened with a 9-3 win over North Greenville then after a 1-0 loss to Bellarmine, the Catawba Indians picked up a 4-3 victory over Ohio Dominican and topped Lander 1-0.  The Lady Indians are now 16-6 on the year.

A five-run second that was capped by a three-run homer by Carley Tysinger (Lexington, NC/C. Davidson HS) helped lift Catawba over North Greenville on Friday night.  Emily B. Huneycutt (Locust, NC/W. Stanly HS) got the win in relief as she pitched the final six innings.  She allowed two runs off four hits and recorded five strikeouts.  Kelsey Burgess (Charlotte, NC/Gaston Christian/North Greenville) drove in two runs.

Tysinger pitched a no-hitter against Bellarmine on Sunday morning, but Catawba could not score in a 1-0 loss.  Kayla Padgett was hit by a pitch with one out in the first, moved to third on a throwing error and scored on a passed ball.  After the error, Tysinger sat the final 17 batters she faced.

Catawba managed just two hits and could not capitalize on three Bellarmine errors.  Tysinger fanned 10 in suffering her first loss after 10 wins to open the season.  Alicia Miller won for Bellarmine, allowing two hits, no walks with eight strikeouts.

Amanda Terry’s (Cordova, NC/Richmond Senior HS) two-out single in the seventh gave Catawba a walk-off 4-3 win over Ohio Dominican.  It scored Sydney Hyder (Asheboro, NC/SW Randolph HS), who had led off the frame with a double. 

The Lady Indians had plated three runs in the first innings, but Ohio Dominican came back with three unearned runs in the fifth to tie it.  Selena Ashley (Walkertown, NC/E. Forsyth HS) got the win in relief.  She allowed no runs off just one hit over two and two-thirds innings of work.  Terry and Mollie Kovalcin (Latrobe, PA/Greater Latrobe HS) each had tow hits.

Tysinger threw another gem as Catawba closed out play with the shutout of Lander.  The freshman allowed only one hit, an infield leadoff single by Brittney Sherriff in the sixth.  It ended a string of 13 consecutive hitless innings pitched. 

The Lady Indians scored the lone run in the sixth.  Burgess led off with a double, was sacrificed to third by Terry and scored on a sacrifice fly by Kovalcin.  Kelsey Davis took the loss for Lander giving up just three hits.

Catawba travels to Augusta State on Wednesday for a 1 p.m. doubleheader in its last tune-up before beginning conference play.
