Central win streak at 11 games
DUBUQUE — Central College catcher, and Newton Senior High School graduate, Caitlyn Meyer is making up for lost time.
After missing the final 19 games of the 2012 season to injury and enduring a lengthy rehab for two surgeries, the four-year starter is on a rampage, swatting a pair of home runs to power the No. 25 Dutch softball team to an Iowa Conference sweep at Loras College Sunday. Central (20-5 overall, 4-0 conference) triumphed 5-3 in eight innings and 8-0 in five innings, stretching the squad’s winning streak to 11 games.
Meyer has 10 hits in 15 at-bats in her last four games. Sunday she rescued the Dutch with a solo home run in the eighth inning of the opener. For the second time in three games, Central yielded a game-tying 2-run homer with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning. But Meyer untied the game to lead off the eighth inning and the Dutch added an insurance run to make a winner of pitcher Mallory Schulenberg.
