SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba rolled to a sweep of Belmont Abbey in softball action on Tuesday afternoon at Whitley Field.  The Lady Indians won by the scores of 9-1 and 17-3 and improve to 2-9 in their home opener.  The Crusaders fall to 1-7.

Delane Smith (Wake Forest, N.C./Wake Forest) tied a school record with seven RBI in game two that went just five innings.  The junior connected on a grand slam during an 11-run fourth.  The round tripper capped a 4-for-4 night cap.

In addition to Smith’s big outing, Katherine Shumaker (Blanch, N.C./Bartlett Yancy) and Kristen Stinnard (Concord, N.C./Cox Mill) each had three hits.  Shumaker drove in five runs and hit a three-run homer in the first to put Catawba up 4-1.  Stinnard was one of four Lady Indians, which included Smith, Shumaker and Caroline Turner (Kenly, N.C./N. Johnston), to score three runs.

Shumaker snapped a 1-1 tie with a RBI double in the third inning of the opener.  Leah Huggins (Hope Mills, N.C./Gray’s Creek) ended the frame with a two-run double.  Catawba benefitted from an error in the fourth and scored four times.

Brooke Walser (Thomasville, N.C./E. Davidson) picked up the win as she pitched the complete six innings.  The freshman allowed a single run off four hits.  She walked three and struck out five.  Huggins finished with three RBI.

Catawba will be at home this weekend as it hosts games in the Catawba/LR Invitational.  Play begins on Saturday at 10 am when the Lady Indians face Augusta.  Catawba is scheduled to play Pfeiffer at 2 pm.
