Softball Splits with Ferrum

WINCHESTER, Va. – Shenandoah University hosted Ferrum College Tuesday in its final home USA South Conference softball doubleheader of the season.

Shenandoah University completed its home USA South Conference softball slate by splitting a doubleheader with Ferrum College Tuesday afternoon.

Shenandoah (18-11, 7-7 USA South) was a 3-1 winner in the opener before Ferrum (27-9, 11-4) came back to win 7-0 in the nightcap.

In game one, SU was held without a hit for the first 5 2/3, but rallied for the 3-1 victory with three runs on three hits in the bottom of the sixth.

Sophomore Brittany Guepe got the rally started with an infield hit before classmate Heather Sink drew a walk to put the tying run in scoring position.

Junior Lauren McCabe then laced a double down the third base line to score Guepe with the tying run.

Sink originally stopped at third base, but before FC pitcher Hannah Shoemaker (6-6) got the ball in the circle to end the play, Sink scampered home with what proved to be the game-winning run.

Morgan Coble provided an insurance run with a single to center to score McCabe.

Junior Jordan Wolford (6-1), who gave up a triple and a double to start the contest, settled down to throw a complete game seven-hitter.

Wolford struck out one and walked one.

Shoemaker allowed the three runs on just three hits while striking out four and walking one.

The Panthers salvaged the split with three runs in the fifth, two in the sixth and two more in the seventh off of Hornets starter Brooke Over (8-8).

Ferrum starter Kaitlyn Culler (13-2) allowed just five hits and struck out two in the complete game shutout.

Sink, McCabe, Coble, Ashley Crawford and Shatora Lane had the Hornets hits in the nightcap.

Shenandoah is on the road this Friday and Saturday for the final two USA South series of the season. The Hornets take on Meredith Friday and Greensboro Sunday.
