Tysinger Sets Strikeout Mark As Softball Splits DH At Belmont Abbey


BELMONT ABBEY, N.C. -- Catawba junior Carley Tysinger (Lexington, N.C./C. Davidson HS) set the school record for career strikeouts as the Catawba Indians split a softball doubleheader on Monday afternoon at Belmont Abbey’s Crusader Field.  The Lady Indians took the opener 4-0, while the Crusaders grabbed a 2-1 win in eight innings in game two.  Catawba is now 11-11 on the year, while Belmont Abbey is 8-17.

Tysinger fanned nine in the complete game shutout in the opener.  She entered the game tied with Lindsay Ettinger with 720 strikeouts and set the new record when she struck out Anna Mixa to end the first inning.  Tysinger now has 729 for her career.

The Lady Indians had sent Tysinger to the circle with a 1-0 lead in the first after Caroline Turner (Kenly, N.C./N. Johnston HS) doubled to start the game and came around to score on a two-out error.  Gina Gerone (Brooklyn, N.Y./Madison HS) expanded the lead with a two-run homer in the third.

Catawba picked up its final run in the sixth as Katherine Shumaker (Blanch, N.C./Bartlett Yancy HS) led off with a double and scored on a two-out single by Kristen Stinnard (Concord, N.C./Cox Mill HS).  Turner, Natalie Naturile (Thomasville, N.C./E. Davidson HS) and Holli Chandler (New London, N.C./N. Stanly HS) each had two hits for the Lady Indians.

Tysinger allowed just five hits in nailing down her third shutout of the season.  She walked none in improving to 7-5 on the year.

Belmont Abbey picked up the win in the nightcap on a two-out single from Amber Faust.  Catawba had led 1-0, scoring in the top of the eighth on a two-out double by Turner.  The Crusaders tied the game when Mackenzie Dziendziel singled home Alexis Pereiro leading off the eighth.  After a double play, Sloane McPeak doubled and Faust followed with the game-winning hit.

For the second straight game, Turner (4-6) threw seven shutout innings to get to extra innings in a scoreless tie.  The Lady Indians had five hits over the first seven frames, but never more than one in an inning and didn’t get a runner to second until the extra frame.

Belmont Abbey had two runners on in both the first and third innings, but Turner got out of the trouble without allowing a run.  Turner allowed one earned run over the seven and two-thirds innings and struck out three.  Nikki Faust (3-3) picked up the win with a complete game.  Naturile had two more hits in the loss.

Catawba returns to league action on Wednesday, hosting Newberry in a SAC doubleheader at 2 p.m.
