SALT LAKE CITY – The Ole Miss softball team will play games after all.

Ole Miss (11-6) will play a doubleheader in Salt Lake City on Monday against Utah State at 1:00 p.m. CT, followed by a matchup vs. Utah at 3:30 p.m. CT.

“I’m grateful that Utah State head coach Steve Johnson was able to find a field for Monday and that they can help with transportation so we can get games played on this road trip,” Ole Miss head coach Windy Thees said.

After having each of its five games at the San Diego Classic I tournament canceled due to rain, it appeared the Rebels trip westward was a wash. Adding to the disappointment of not playing in San Diego, Ole Miss’ flight from Salt Lake City to Memphis was canceled due to ice in the Memphis area. That’s when the wheels started turning.

Utah and Utah State were also in the San Diego Classic I tournament Friday-Sunday and were thus looking to make up games that had been canceled. With Ole Miss stuck in Salt Lake City for the day, the three schools agreed to a Monday round robin at Utah Softball Stadium.

Ole Miss enters Monday’s doubleheader after outscoring its opponents 20-5 (1.03 ERA) at the Ole Miss Softball Complex in the Red and Blue Classic (Feb. 21-23), highlighted by a stretch of 25 consecutive innings where the Rebels held their opponents scoreless.
