JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (April 19, 2022) – ETSU Softball suffered a pair of shutout losses to Appalachian State on Tuesday afternoon, falling 8-0 in both games to the Mountaineers. However, the Buccaneers did come away with some history, recording their 96th stolen base of the season to break the all-time school record for stolen bases in a single season.
Game 1: Appalachian State 8, ETSU 0 (6 innings)
The Mountaineers scored in the opening inning of game one, capitalizing on a wild pitch by Allison Farr (Knoxville, Tenn.). The very next inning, Appalachian State doubled its lead to 2-0 after an ETSU fielding error allowed the Mountaineers to cross the plate.
Appalachian State scored one more in the third inning before exploding for five runs in the sixth to take an 8-0 advantage. Kayt Houston was responsible for four of the five runs, launching a bases-loaded grand slam over the center field wall.
The Bucs had a third-inning highlight for the record book. With two outs in the inning, Ally Chernak (Ooltewah, Tenn.) aided the Bucs in breaking a school record with the team’s 96th stolen base of the season. The previous record was 95 held by the 2008 team.
