Grace Holland joined Brawley with two hits in the opener for Catawba. Only two of the runs allowed by Brooke Walser (3-5) were earned. She surrendered 10 hits with a pair of walks and two strikeouts.

Sarah Tucker and Katie Robinson each had three hits for Lees-McRae. Karly McRary had the only RBI in game one. Kara Cunningham (5-6) claimed the win. She gave up one unearned run off six hits with a pair of walks and seven strikeouts.

Jordan Dean’s two-run double in the bottom of the first of game two gave Catawba a quick 2-0 edge in game two. Brawley doubled home a run in the second and Nicole Hunter made her first made her first collegiate hit memorable has she led off the fourth with a home run to stake the Lady Indians a 4-0 lead.

Madison Hunter (5-0) made those runs hold up, allowing just a single run off a sacrifice fly by Cunningham in the sixth. The freshman gave up just two hits, walked two and fanned six.  Nicole Hunter finished with two hits.

Catawba travels to Limestone on Sunday for a 1 pm doubleheader. The Lady Indians are at home Tuesday against King.
