20: Morris powers Wolverine Softball to first PAC doubleheader sweep
April 26, 2014 continued to be a big day for the Grove City College
athletic department, and the Wolverine Softball team wouldn't miss out
on being part of the action, staving off a pair of late Thiel pushes to
earn a doubleheader sweep of the Tomcats, 6-5 and 6-3.
The sweep was the first in conference play for the Wolverines since an
April 2012 sweep of Westminster and the first sweep of Thiel since the
Junior catcher Sarah Morris continued to swing a hot bat for Grove City
in the two games, going an impressive 5-for-6 at the plate with six RBI,
a home run and a double while Caitlyn Vidovic and Alaina Kunselman each
added three hits.
Morris's two-run blast gave the Wolverines a 3-1 lead in the top of the
third of game one, but Thiel would answer and take a 4-3 lead in the
bottom of the fourth. After each team added a run over the next two
innings, Kunselman would provide the game-winning hit, smacking a
two-run single in the top of the seventh to give Grove City a decisive
In game two, the Wolverines scored twice in the first on back-to-back
RBI singles by Erika Aughton and Morris, and after a Thiel run in the
top of the third, Grove City would add another run in the bottom of the
third when Kelsey Shirey and Morris hit consecutive doubles.
Thiel would rally to tie the game at 3-3 in the top of the fifth, but
Morris had the answer once again, hitting a two-run single up the middle
and later scoring on a Vidovic double down the left field line to close
the scoring at 6-3.
