LAWRENCEVILLE, GA - The Montreat College softball team picked up their first win of the season over the weekend, taking one of four games in a tournament hosted by #13 Georgia Gwinnett.

The Cavaliers (1-13) opened up the weekend with a 10-9 come from behind win over West Virginia Tech. Montreat went up 6-4 after three innings and held an 8-7 lead after five. West Virginia Tech scored two runs in the top of the seventh to take a 9-8 lead. With their backs against the wall, the Cavaliers fought back for the win when Amanda Hill (FR/Chickamauga, GA) hit a game-winning, two-run single. 

The Cavaliers got three hits from Kelsey Nolasco (FR/Casa Grande, AZ) and two RBI each from Hill, Cailin Warner (FR/Portland, OR), Mikki Shelton (FR/Old Fort, NC), and Paige Rosenbaum (FR/Dandridge, TN). Veronica Ellis (FR/Augusta, GA) picked up the win after going the distance and striking out three batters.

In their second game on Saturday, the Cavaliers dropped a 16-1 decision to #13 Georgia Gwinnett. Montreat was held to four hits and their lone RBI came courtesy of Cailin Warner.

On Sunday, Montreat battled a Brenau team that is receiving votes in the national poll. The Cavaliers scored two runs in the top of the first inning before falling to Brenau 4-2. Cailin Warner again provided the offense and drove in both runs with a base hit. Veronica Ellis again went the distance on the mound, giving up four runs with three strikeouts in six innings.

In the tournament finale, Montreat dropped a 9-1 decision to Georgia Gwinnett. Montreat got their lone run in the first when Mikki Shelton scored off of a throwing error by Georgia Gwinnett. The Cavaliers would be held to two hits in the loss. 

"Our win against West Virginia Tech was a total team effort," said head coach Heather Maston. "Our energy on the field and in the dugout really propelled us throughout the entire weekend."

The Cavaliers will be back in action on Thursday, February 23rd when they travel to take on Brevard College. The first game of the double-header is set to begin at 2:00pm.
