KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – The Ole Miss softball team played No. 8 Tennessee tight for the third consecutive game Sunday on the road at Sherri Parker Lee Stadium, but lost the series and season finale 5-1 under sunny skies in Knoxville, Tenn.

After allowing three runs in the first inning, Ole Miss settled down to allow just two runs and one hit for the remainder of the game, but couldn’t generate enough offense to make the comeback.

“Our girls had a choice to make this weekend, and they came out and wanted to show everybody how good Ole Miss softball was,” Ole Miss softball head coach Windy Thees said. “We proved it this weekend. We played hard all the way around. We pitched well, we hit well, we could have played a little better defense today, but all the way around we left it all on the field. I couldn’t be prouder of our team.”

Four different Rebels recorded hits Sunday, including an RBI single from sophomore Madi Osias.

Tennessee (42-9, 17-7 Southeastern Conference) opened the scoring in the first inning with a three-run home run to left field by catcher Annie Aldrete.

Ole Miss (22-31, 3-21 SEC) cut into its deficit in the third inning with an RBI single from Osias that scored senior RT Cantillo from third base.

The Lady Vols added one run in the fourth inning on an RBI single to left field, but Cantillo prevented further damage one batter later by making a fantastic, back-handed catch over her head while sprinting back toward the wall in center field with the bases loaded.

Tennessee closed out the scoring in the game with one more run in the fifth inning.

Sunday’s game concludes the 2014 season for the Ole Miss Rebels. The 2014 Rebels set team program records with 396 hits, 217 RBIs, 150 walks, and tied the program record with five saves. It’s the third straight year Ole Miss has increased its season hit total.

Individually, junior Allison Brown and Cantillo each logged 11-game hitting streaks, which tie for the school’s third longest streak.

Cantillo finishes the 2014 season with the second best single-season batting average in program history (.424), the fourth most hits (61), tied the fifth most runs scored (35), tied the fourth most walks (30), tied the 10th best slugging percentage (.556) and logged the third best on-base percentage (.522).

Brown’s 12 doubles this season are tied for the sixth most in single-season history behind the 17 she hit as a sophomore in 2013.

Senior Londen Ladner tied the single season record for the ninth most home runs (seven) and also tied the mark for the seventh most RBIs (34).

On March 21, Thees logged a career milestone when she recorded the 400th victory of her career after the Rebels defeated Arkansas 11-4 in the two teams’ series opener at the Ole Miss Softball Complex.

Ole Miss is graduating six seniors in Cantillo, Shelby Jo Fenter, Carly Hummel, Ladner, Natalie Nimmo and Marina Parra.
