ETSU drops first two games of the Tiger Classic

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (March 18, 2022) – It was another tough start for the Bucs this weekend as ETSU dropped the first two games of the 2022 Tiger Classic to Northwestern State and Memphis.

Game 1: Northwestern State 7, ETSU 1
The Lady Demons jumped out in front and stayed there after scoring five runs on four hits, highlighted by a three-run double off the bat of Laney Roos.

The Bucs trimmed the deficit to four after Riley Nayadley (Ooltewah, Tenn.) brought home Kelly Warren (Mechanicsville, Va.) with an RBI single for ETSU’s only run of the game.

Northwestern State padded its lead in the sixth inning with a solo homer and then the seventh inning with a bases-loaded walk to solidify the 7-1 win for the Lady Demons.

ETSU surrendered two more runs in the bottom of the frame, but then earned the two runs back in the top of the sixth. Amber Atkins (South Pittsburg, Tenn.) was responsible for the first run, roping an RBI double of her own to bring home Bailey Turnbow (Cookeville, Tenn.).
