ETSU unable to overcome early deficit

GREENSBORO, N.C. (May 12, 2022) – The 2022 season came to an end for ETSU Softball on Thursday afternoon, falling in an elimination game to Western Carolina by the final of 3-2 in the Southern Conference Championship.

Western Carolina jumped ahead early and did not look back, scoring off an Addie Pate single to right field in the bottom of the first inning. Two innings later, Bailey Huneycutt extended the Catamount lead to 3-0.

ETSU had its share of chances to cut into the lead, but was unable to do so until the top of the fifth inning. With runners on first and second and two down, SoCon All-Freshman honoree Cameron Young (Knoxville, Tenn.) further cemented her freshman campaign with a two-run double in the left center gap, pulling the Bucs to within one. The Blue & Gold popped out in the next at bat, stranding the tying run in scoring position.

The Bucs limited Western Carolina’s offense in the final two innings, but could not muster enough production to bring home the tying run.
