OXFORD, Miss. – It has been a busy start to the season for the Ole Miss softball team (2-5), and the Rebels will hit the road again for the Mardi Gras Invitational in Mobile, Ala., from Friday-Sunday. Ole Miss, coming off a 9-1 loss in its home opener to No. 10 LSU, will face Lamar, Central Arkansas, South Alabama and Jackson State at the tournament.
“The South Alabama tournament again gives us a chance to play an NCAA regional opponent and help prepare us for our tough SEC schedule,” Ole Miss softball head coach Windy Thees said. “We look forward to competing with the quality teams down there and have plans to begin a winning streak this weekend.”
The Rebels will face Lamar and Central Arkansas on Friday at 11 a.m. and 1:15 p.m. CT, respectively. Ole Miss will then play tournament host South Alabama, which is receiving votes in each of the two major polls this week, on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. Ole Miss closes out the tournament Sunday against Jackson State at 10 a.m.
Sophomore third baseman Allison Brown has led the Rebels at the plate with a team-high tying six hits and five RBI. Brown is hitting .316 and has a home run and four doubles on the year, including an RBI double Wednesday against LSU.
Freshman outfielder Bri Payne leads the Rebels in batting average at .364, and freshman shortstop Haley Culley has scored a team-high six runs on a team-high tying six hits.
In the circle, Ole Miss has been paced by junior pitchers Shelby Jo Fenter and Carly Hummel, who have combined to throw 37.1 of the Rebels’ 43.0 innings this season. Fenter has struck out 28 batters in 21.2 innings of work, while Hummel has fanned a dozen in 15.2 innings. Each pitcher has thrown a complete game this season.
