Davidson HS) and Sean Grant (Statesville, N.C./W. Iredell HS) each worked a scoreless inning of relief. 

Catawba pounded out 15 hits in the night cap as they ran away with the victory.  Dylan Richardson (Randleman, N.C./Randleman HS/Appalachian St.) had three hits and drove in four runs.  Will Albertson had two hits and two RBI.

Freshman Connor Johnson (Rockwell, N.C./E. Rowan HS) improved to 3-0 on the year with five shutout innings.  He fanned two.
