Anderson Gets By Lees-McRae

Allison Cromer was 3-for-3, scored three runs, and drove in two runs to lead Carolinas Virginia Athletic Conference foe Anderson University to a 10-5 victory over Lees-McRae in women's softball action. The Lady Trojans won the first game 4-2 to sweep the doubleheader Saturday afternoon.

In game one, Ashley Rogers struck out ten to lead the Lady Trojans, allowing just two hits and two earned runs over seven innings. Kayla Williams got things started, supplying the offense for the home side with a three run home run in the third inning. The Lady Bobcats cut the score to 3-2 with a two run double off the bat of Paula Fryer in the sixth, but Anderson would add insurance with a solo shot from Kayla Thrasher, also in the sixth inning.

Dakota Beck, (pictured top left), kicked off the second game with a two run home run in the first inning, giving the Lady Bobcats their first lead between the two games. Anderson would tie the score at two in the second inning with an RBI double from Brittany Gary and a run scoring single from Melissa Carmichael. Leading 5-3, the Lady Trojans scored three runs in the bottom of the fourth, capped with a two run triple from Cromer. Ellen Steele added a two run home run for the home side in the fifth, making the score 10-3. The Lady Bobcats managed to get two runs back, but the damage had been done, and Anderson improved to 3-1 in CVAC play, 11-6 overall.

The Lady Bobcats fall to 4-14 overall, (1-5 CVAC), and will meet Montreat College Tuesday evening a non-conference doubleheader. Game times are 5:00pm and 7:00pm.
