12_SB_HuneycuttEDNCAA

AUGUSTA, GA -- Catawba and host Augusta State split a softball doubleheader on Wednesday afternoon at Jaguar Field.  The Catawba Indians won the opener 3-1, while the Jaguars battled back to win game two 9-5.  The Catawba Indians are now 17-7 on the season, while ASU is 6-14.

Carley Tysinger (Lexington, NC/C. Davidson HS) improved to 12-1 as she pitched Catawba to the win in the opener.  She surrendered a single run on two hits, while walking one and striking out seven.  Haley Birkle took the loss for the Jaguars after allowing just four hits.

Tysinger provided the opening run for the Lady Indians with a RBI double in the first to plate Amanda Terry (Cordova, NC/Richmond Senior HS), who had led off the game with a single.   Catawba benefitted from an error in the fourth to add two more runs.  Emily D. Huneycutt (Oakboro, NC/W. Stanly HS) and Kelsey Burgess (Charlotte, NC/Gaston Christian/North Greenville) drove in the runs on a pair of fielder’s choices.

Augusta State got its lone run in its fourth.  Macy Terry picked up a RBI on a two-out double.  That would be the last Jaguar to reach base as Tysinger sat down the final 10 batters she faced. 

The Jaguars jumped out quickly in game two, scoring three times in the first and four more in the second, capped by a three-run homer by Terry.  Emily D. Huneycutt hit a pair of two-run homer to pull Catawba within 7-5 in the top of the sixth, but the Jaguars added two more run and held on for the win.

Catawba travels to Carson-Newman on Friday as the Lady Indians open up league play with a 1 p.m. doubleheader.
