Softball Squeaks Into SAC Tournament Despite Dropping Pair to Brevard

SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba dropped both games of a South Atlantic Conference softball doubleheader to Brevard on Friday afternoon at Whitley Field.  The Tornados claimed wins of 1-0 and 9-2 to improve to 22-23 overall and 11-9 in the SAC.  The Catawba Indians fall to 24-19 and 9-13, but will qualify for the SAC Tournament which starts on Thursday on the campus of Lincoln Memorial University.

The Tornados needed just one run to take the opener as Jamie Hrobak limited the Lady Indians to just three hits.  She did not strike out a batter and walked two as she upped her record to 16-8.

Brevard plated the lone run of the game in the second inning.  Kinsey Parrish led off with a double and was sacrificed to third.  Dallas Heaton followed with a single to center to plate Parrish.

Carley Tysinger (Lexington, NC/C. Davidson HS) took the loss despite allowing just that one run off four hits.  She walked two and struck out 11.  The Lady Indians had six baserunners in the game, but never more than one in any inning.  Holli Chandler (New London, NC/W. Stanly HS) had two of the three Catawba hits.

Brevard overcame four errors, scoring nine runs on 10 hits, to complete the sweep.  Doubles from Alyssa Miller and Parrish helped the Tornados plate four in the first.  Kinny Davis had a two-run single with two outs.  Catawba cut the lead to 5-2 in the third on a two-run single from Katherine Shumaker (Blanch, NC/Bartlett Yancy HS), but the Lady Indians could not push any more runs across the plate.

The Tornados answered the Catawba runs with another four-spot in the fourth.  Miller capped that frame with a three-run double, the last of her three hits in the game.

Miller not only had three hits and four RBI in game two, but also earned the win in the circle with a complete game.  She improved to 4-10, scattering six hits with three strikeouts and did not allow an earned run.  Davis added two hits and Casey Whitaker scored three runs.

The Lady Indians will be seeded eighth for the SAC Tournament and will open with the yet-to-be-determined top seed, either Lenoir-Rhyne or Wingate.  Catawba's tournament game is scheduled for Thursday at 6:30 p.m.
