SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba and visiting Bloomsburg split a pair of shutouts in a softball doubleheader on Thursday afternoon at Whitley Field.  The Catawba Indians won 1-0 in the opener, while Bloomsburg grabbed a 1-0 win in game two.  The Lady Indians are now 20-12 on the year, while the Huskies move to 9-4.

A pair of freshmen led Catawba to the win in the opener.  Carley Tysinger (Lexington, NC/C. Davidson HS) tossed her seventh shutout and fanned 13 for her second straight start.  She allowed just two hits and walked one to improve to 14-4.  The Huskies managed two baserunners in the same inning only one which came in the fourth after a one-single and a two-out error.

Gina Gerone (Brooklyn, NC/Madison HS) provided the lone run for the Lady Indians with a two-out solo homer in the bottom of the sixth.  It was the freshman's third home run of the season.  Cait Paine took the loss from Bloomsburg allowing only the one run off four hits while posting seven strikeouts.  Casey Baucom (Marshville, NC/Piedmont HS) had two of Catawba's four hits.

Bloomsburg got a two-out RBI double from Leann Bell to plate the lone run of game two.  It came after one-out singles by Rachel Fredell and Caitlin O'Connor.  Catawba twice had a runner at third with less than two outs, but could not push across the tying run and left five runners in scoring position in the game.

O'Connor got the win for the Huskies.  She went four and a third innings, surrendering five hits with one strikeout.  Paine got the save with two and two-thirds innings of hitless relief.  She fanned four.  Fredell had three of the six Bloomsburg hits.

Emily B. Huneycutt (Locust, NC/W. Stanly HS) took the loss for Catawba.  She went three and two-thirds innings and allowed the run off five hits with two strikeouts.  Tysinger finished up and gave up just one hit over three and a third innings with six strikeouts.

Catawba gets back to league action on Saturday as they host Lincoln Memorial for a 1 p.m. doubleheader.
