GREENSBORO - It has been one of those weeks where if the ball is pitched over the plate, North Carolina A&T softball opponents are hitting the ball hard. After a two-hour rain delay on Tuesday, Western Carolina won both games of a doubleheader at the Lady Aggies Softball Complex, 18-6 and 9-0.

The final scores marked the third time this week the Aggies have allowed nine or more runs. The Catamounts compiled 19 hits in the first game before putting up a flurry of hits in the fifth inning of the second game to put the Aggies (12-29) away.

A&T catcher Sabrina Edmonds hit a three-run homer in the first game, her team-leading ninth of the season. Alexandra McAfee added a two-run RBI single in Game 1. Despite the offensive output, the Aggies fell behind early in both games.

WCU (21-29) brought 13 players to the plate in the first inning. Four of those players recorded extra base hits. Jordan Felton went 3-for-3 with three RBI. In the first inning of Game 2, the Catamounts took advantage of a throwing error. The throwing error eventually led to the Catamounts loading the bases. Haley Pace, who was 2-for-5 with five RBI in Game 2, hit a three-run RBI triple to center field to give WCU an early 4-0 lead.

In the fifth inning, WCU put the Aggies away with three consecutive extra base hits. Morgan Wyatt hit a pinch-hit triple, Amber Steinhardt hit an RBI double and Pace hit a two-run homer to center field to give the Catamounts the distance they needed to end the game in the fifth inning because of the 8-run deficit rule.

A&T will play a 2 p.m., doubleheader Saturday at Presbyterian before returning to conference play on Saturday, May 5 when they face archrival N.C. Central at the Lady Aggies Softball Complex in a 1 p.m., doubleheader.
