SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba topped visiting West Virginia Wesleyan 17-9 in women’s lacrosse action on Saturday night at Shuford Stadium.  The Catawba Indians improve to 2-1, while the Bobcats fall in their opener.

Kirstyn Kruse (Sagamore Beach, Mass./Williston Northampton Prep) got Catawba off to a quick start with a pair of goals in the opening four minutes.  The Lady Indians led 4-0 before WVW cut the margin to 4-2 midway through the first half.  Catawba then spurted out to an 8-3 lead at the break.

The Bobcats quickly pulled within 8-5 early in the second half on goals from Natalie Schaffner and Hannah Antonelli, but Catawba posted six of the next seven goals to go on top 14-6.  WVW made it 14-9 with five minutes to play before the Lady Indians scored the final three goals.

Catawba got four goals from freshman Katie Barth (Baltimore, Md./Sparrows Point) along with three from Nicolette Salay (Columbus, N.J./N. Burlington Regional) and fellow rookie Nicole Hunt (Pleasant Garden, N.C./SW Guilford).  Salay had two assists with Kruse picking up two goals and two helpers.
