Softball eliminated from softball championship tournament

Saturday, May 15, 2004

CHATTANOOGA, TN -- Eighth-seeded Appalachian State continued its inspired tournament run with a 4-0 shutout of sixth-seeded East Tennessee State Saturday, advancing to face number four Elon at 6:00 p.m. Saturday at the 2004 SoCon Softball Championships. ASU starting pitcher Jordan Arnold was nearly unhittable on the day, allowing just two singles while striking out three batters. With the win, she improved to 10-12 on the year. ASU manufactured its first run in the bottom of the second inning. After a Kristyn Hurt single, pinch runner Letitia Lennon stole second base and advanced to third on a fielder’s choice. Christa Hicks then drove Hurt home with a sacrifice fly to centerfield. Candace Shelton scored ASU’s second run in the third inning thanks to consecutive throwing errors by ETSU infielders. The Mountaineers’ Amber Handy continued her stellar play in the tournament with a two-RBI single in the fourth inning, plating Shelton and Wendy Lewis. Handy was the story again offensively, tallying two hits and two RBI for the victorious Mountaineers. Tiffany McVay (Soddy-Daisy, Tenn.) was credited with the loss despite allowing only one earned run on the day. With the loss, East Tennessee State (29-34, 8-13) is eliminated from the tournament.
