CVCC Softball Sweeps Doubleheader From Southwest Virginia CC

The 15th-ranked Catawba Valley Community College softball team swept a road conference doubleheader on Wednesday and in the process gave head coach Josh Bumgarner his 100th win as head coach.

The Red Hawks improve to 30-6 overall and 17-3 in Region 10 play.

Behind a two-hit shutout on the mound from freshman Mayson Lail, the Red Hawks won the opening game of Wednesday’s conference series — propelling head coach Josh Bumgarner to the century mark in wins.

Offensively, CVCC shortstop Jessica Cannon and third baseman Chesney Stikeleather both recorded two hits each for the Red Hawks while Camryn Bryant, Grace Andrews and Cannon all drove in one run each.

Lail struck out nine batters in her two-hit complete game, improving to 15-4 on the spring.

On the mound, Red Hawk starter Jillian Jones allowed four hits, one unearned run, one walk and struck out two batters. She improves to 14-2 on the season.
