SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba was swept by visiting Newberry in South Atlantic Conference softball action on Wednesday afternoon at Whitley Field.  The Wolves won by the scores of 6-0 and 11-4 in improving to 21-8 overall and 4-0 in the SAC.  The Catawba Indians fall to 9-24 and 2-2.

Newberry took a 1-0 lead in the second inning of the opener as Rachel Marion led off the frame with a home run.  A two-out single by Christina Linton in the fourth extended the lead to 2-0.  The Wolves added three runs in the fifth, two on a single by Mallory Gerndt.

While Newberry was picking up 14 hits, Wolves hurler Devon Morrison (12-3) kept Catawba bats silent.  She took a no-hitter into the sixth before it was finally broken up on a sharp single to left by Kristen Stinnard (Concord, N.C./Cox Mill) with two outs.  Morrison would allow just the lone hit in posting the shutout, walking three and fanning two.

Haley Simonds doubled home two runs in the first inning of the nightcap and added another RBI double in third as the Wolves jumped to a 5-0 lead.  Catawba sliced into the lead in the bottom of third.  Stinnard singled home a run and Delane Smith (Wake Forest, N.C./Wake Forest) singled home two more to make it 5-3.

Caroline Turner (Kenly, N.C./N. Johnston) connected on a two-out home run in the fourth to bring Catawba within a run at 5-4.  Newberry struck for three in the sixth to take an 8-4 lead then Marion had a two-run homer in the seventh.

Simonds, Linton and Natalie Willis all had three hits for Newberry in game two.  Willis and Tori Caldwell had collected three hits in the opener.  Catawba got two hits from Smith and Lynnsey Taylor (Hope Mills, N.C./Gray’s Creek) in game two.

Catawba travels to Carson-Newman on Saturday for a 1 pm doubleheader.
