MARYVILLE, Tenn.—Behind the senior arm of Scott Holloway,
the Huntingdon baseball team avoided a series sweep with an 8-3 victory
over Maryville College in the final game of the Great South Athletic

With the win, the Hawks improved to 23-9 on the season, but just 2-4

After allowing 28 hits and issuing 18 walks in the first two games of
the series, Huntingdon handed the ball to Holloway (5-1), who responded
with his team-best third complete game of the season. Holloway
scattered nine hits and allowed only one earned run, while striking out
three and walking four in 9.0 innings of work.
Freshman Austin White finished the contest with a team-high three
hits, while adding his fifth stolen base of the year. Senior Chad Green
delivered the big hit of the game for Huntingdon, a three-run single in a
five-run eighth inning to give the Hawks the lead for good. Seniors
Chris Knight, Kyle Eller and Shawn Bezwiechin, as well as junior Drew
Harrell each added one RBI. Senior Josh Bennefield scored a pair of
Wes Dobson (1-2) suffered the loss for the Scots, allowing two runs
on two hits in 2 2/3 innings of relief.
Jamey Davis led Maryville at the plate, finishing 3-for-4, while
Junior Valentine added a hit and two stolen bases.
Huntingdon will return to action on April 6, when it travels to
Jackson, Miss., to take on Millsaps at 4 p.m.
