TIGERVILLE, S.C. -- Catawba picked up a 15-10 win over host North Greenville in women's lacrosse action on Wednesday afternoon at Pepsi Stadium.  The Catawba Indians up their record to 11-4, while the Crusaders fall to 7-6.

Catawba scored the first five goals with five different players notching them over the opening 18 minutes.  North Greenville cut the margin to 6-3 late in the half before Kirstyn Kruse (Sagamore Beach, Mass./Williston Northampton Prep) tallied one of her five goals on the day to give the Lady Indians a 7-3 lead at the break.

North Greenville couldn't make a charge in the second half as Catawba matched each run the Crusaders had.  NGU never got closer than three goals.  Up 9-6, Nicole Hunt (Pleasant Garden, N.C./SE Guilford) and Kruse scored to push the lead back five and Imani Grays (Greensboro, N.C./SE Guilford) answered two goals from the Crusaders to put the Lady Indians on top 12-8 with 10:54 left.
