Handy sparks Softball to sweep of twinbill with St. Andrews

SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba College swept a pair of one-run games from St. Andrews in a softball doubleheader on Sunday afternoon at Whitley Field. Catawba took the opener 3-2 and won the second game 2-1 in eight innings. The wins improve the Lady Indians to 5-6, while St. Andrews falls to 1-5. Catawba plated three unearned runs to take the first game. After an error in the second inning, Shannon Handy (Advance, NC) belted a two-out, two-run double to left field to give Catawba a 2-0 lead. Tina Gonslaves (Kailua, HI) drove home a run for the Knights in the third, but Catawba struck back in the fifth, scoring off a two-out error. St. Andrews would get within a run in the sixth, as Gonsalves scored on a double by Bethany Smith (Lexington, SC). The Knights got a runner to third with one out in the seventh, but Lindsay Ettinger (Pasadena, MD) got a strikeout and a fly out to the warning track in center to end the game. Gonsalves was 3-for-3 to lead the Knights at the plate, while Handy was 2-for-2 with a pair of doubles for Catawba. Ettinger scattered eight hits with no walks and six strikeouts in improving her record to 3-2. Sara Jones (Roseburg, OR) surrendered just five hits in the loss. The second game was scoreless until Catawba struck for a run in the bottom of the fifth. Pinch-hitter Liz Corbett (Severn, MD) drew a leadoff walk and scored on a two-out error. The Knights would answer in their sixth as Kim Makahilahila (Kailua, HI) doubled home Mari Finn (Lahaina, HI). Catawba loaded the bases with no outs in the eighth, but needed a two-out error by St. Andrews to plate the winning run. The Lady Indians managed just four hits off Gonsalves, who had five strikeouts. Handy scattered five hits over eight innings. She posted four strikeouts in gaining her second win with one defeat. #####
