Softball Splits Saturday Games at Catawba Invitational
SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba split a pair of games on Saturday at Whitley Field in the LR/Catawba Invitational Softball Tournament. The Catawba Indians opened with a 6-2 win over Augusta before bowing to Pfeiffer 9-2. Catawba is now 3-10 on the year.
Katherine Shumaker (Blanch, N.C./Bartlett Yancy) got Catawba off to a quick lead on Augusta with a two-run homer in the first. Leah Huggins (Hope Mills, N.C./Gray’s Creek) snapped a 2-2 tie with her first career homer in the second to put the Lady Indians up for good.
Delane Smith (Wake Forest, N.C./Wake Forest) forced home a run when she was hit by a pitch in the fourth and she singled home a run in the sixth as Catawba pushed the lead to 6-2. Smith had two of Catawba’s seven hits. Shumaker and Huggins walked twice after hitting their homers.
Brooke Walser (Thomasville, N.C./E. Davidson) threw the complete game to improve to 2-2. She scattered eight hits, but both runs were unearned. The freshman walked three and fanned five. Lydia Hausman had three hits for the Jaguars and Lindsey Stokes drove in both runs with a second-inning two-out double.
Pfeiffer out-hit Catawba 9-5 in never trailing. Back-to-back doubles by Kristen Stinnard (Concord, N.C./Cox Mill) and Smith to start the fourth produced a run to cut a Falcon lead to 3-1, but Pfeiffer answered with a four-run fifth.
Stephanie Fortner and Kaleigh Troutman both had two hits and a RBI for Pfeiffer. Vada Blue Sherrill and Emma Tuttle each had two RBI. Caitlin Christian struck out six in the complete game win.
Catawba will face Goldey-Beacom and Mount Olive Sunday at Whitley Field. GBC and Mount Olive play at 9 am with Catawba taking on GBC at 11 am and Mount Olive at 1 pm.
