ASU Advances Past King, 5-1

DAHLONEGA, Ga. – Augusta State jumped on top 3-0 against King College Saturday afternoon and advanced in the NCAA Southeast Dahlonega Regional with a 5-1 victory at Haines & Carolyn Hill Stadium.

Jaguar senior shortstop Kacee Camp enjoyed a 4-for-4 effort and scored two runs. Jessica Thornton went 2-for-4 with a pair of runs scored. Thornton, Lauren Yeargan and Macy Terry each drove in a run.

With the victory, the Jaguars improved to 32-17 and advanced to take on Columbus State at 6:30 p.m. in an elimination game. 

Senior righthander Emily Headrick (17-6) allowed six hits and one run in 5.0 innings. She tallied one strikeout before Heather Hughes worked the final 2.0 innings.

Camp singled to open the game and moved to second on a Hannah Vaughn sacrifice. Kristen Jones singled sharply through the left side and Jessica Thornton laid down a perfectly-executed suicide squeeze to plate Camp.

When King pitcher Hannah Light's errant throw to first wasn't handled, Jones scored all the way from first. Thornton promptly stole second before Macy Terry singled down the right field line to chase home Thornton.

The Tornado (34-19), from Conference Carolinas, got a run back in the bottom of the third before the Jags answered with a pair of runs in the fifth. Camp provided the spark with a leadoff single and Thornton lined an RBI-triple to right. One batter later, Yeargan slapped an RBI-double to right-center to chase home Thornton.

Light scattered 10 hits in 6.0 innings, yielding three earned runs with a pair of strikeouts and a walk. Rachael Wilmoth closed out the game with an inning of scoreless relief.
