Softball Takes Pair from Georgia College

MILLEDGEVILLE, GA -- Catawba swept host Georgia College at the Peeler Complex in the final day of the Georgia College Invitational. The Lady Indians won by the scores of 5-3 and 3-0. The Lady Indians go to 4-0 overall, while the Bobcats drop to 1-3.

Georgia College jumped ahead early in the first game 3-0 off of two hits and an error on Catawba in the bottom of the first. With three runners on, Haley Burnett doubled them all home with a blast to right center. Freshman pitcher Selena Ashley (Walkertown, NC/E. Forsyth) got the start for the Lady Indians.

That would be it for Bobcat runs as Ashley would combine with Emily B. Huneycutt (Locust, NC/W. Stanly) to hold Georgia College to five more hits the rest of the game. Huneycutt picked up the win allowing just two hits and striking out two in four innings of work. Ashley pitched the first three inning with two earned runs, five hits and four walks.

Catawba quickly answered back in the top of the second. Mollie Kovalcin (Latrobe, PA/Greater Latrobe) led off with a single to left and Presley Destro (Mogadore, OH/Mogadore) did the same to center. Kovalcin scored on an error on the Bobcat catcher while Destro would reach home on a Sydney Hyder (Asheboro, NC/SW Randolph) single to pull Catawba within 3-2.

The Lady Indians would go ahead 4-3 in the top of the third on doubles by Emily D. Huneycutt (Oakboro, NC/W. Stanly) and Destro that scored Huneycutt and Tara Gibbs (Waynesville, NC/Tuscola).

Catawba added an insurance run in sixth to set the final score. The Lady Indians garnered ten hits for the game as four different players had two apiece.

In the nightcap, Brittany Murray (Asheboro, NC/E. Randolph) pitched a complete game, three hit shutout while striking out four as the Lady Indians came out of the tournament unscathed.

The Lady Indian got all of the offense they would need in the second when Kayla Myers (Bryson City, NC/Swain Co.) singled to left scoring Emily D. Huneycutt.

Catawba tacked on two more on in the fourth inning as Myers scored on a Gibbs single and Kovalcin scored on a wild pitch. Gibbs had two of the Lady Indian’s five hits for the game.

The Lady Indians travel to play Lander on Saturday, Feb. 11 at 1 pm.
