15_SB_TurnerCaroline2

BREVARD, N.C. -- Catawba opened South Atlantic Conference softball play with a doubleheader sweep of host Brevard on Saturday afternoon at the Brevard Turf Field.  The Catawba Indians won the pair of games by the scores of 10-1 and 14-2 in improving to 9-22 overall and 2-0 in the SAC.  The Tornados fall to 2-8 and 0-2.

Caroline Turner (Kenly, N.C./N. Johnston) had two hits in each game, drove in four run in the opener and had a two-run single in the fourth inning of game two that pulled Catawba even after an early deficit.  Brooke Walser (Thomasville, N.C./E. Davidson) won both games to up her record to 6-8.

Kristen Stinnard (Concord, N.C./Cox Mill) and Grace Holland (Thomasville, N.C./Ledford) both enjoyed a three-hit game two after two hits in the opener.  Taylor Martin (Salisbury, N.C./W. Rowan) also had two hits in each game with Delane Smith (Wake Forest, N.C./Wake Forest) went 4-for-4 in game two.

Stinnard scored on a wild pitch in the first inning to give Catawba a quick lead.  Turner capped a four-run third with a two-run triple then singled home two runs to finish off a four-run fourth and Catawba ended the game after five.

Walser gave up just one unearned run over the five innings.  She surrendered two hits with a pair of walks and five strikeouts.  She came back during the second inning of the nightcap and held the Tornados hitless over the final six frames.  She walked none and fanned three.

After going behind following Ricki Kuhn’s two-run single in the first, Catawba rallied back in the fourth.  Turner tied the game with her two-run single and Holland doubled her home to put the Lady Indians up 3-2.

Catawba added three more runs in the fifth.  Smith singled home two and Katherine Shumaker (Blanch, N.C./Bartlett Yancy) knocked her in with a double.  The Lady Indians broke the game open with a seven-run seventh.  Keri Faulkner (Albemarle, N.C./N. Stanly) doubled home two and Leah Higgins (Hope Mills, N.C./Gray’s Creek) followed with a two-run single.

Catawba next hosts Newberry on Wednesday with a 1 pm doubleheader.
