NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Just two days after concluding its Southeastern Conference opening series at No. 15 Kentucky, the Ole Miss softball team (17-11, 1-2 SEC) now prepares for a Tuesday matchup at Belmont University.
Tuesday’s game against the Bruins (7-8), which starts at 3:30 p.m. CT, will be the Rebels’ ninth straight game away from the friendly confines of the Ole Miss Softball Complex.
“We really want to thank Vanderbilt for allowing us to work out in their gym and Belmont for opening their indoor batting facility to us,” Ole Miss softball head coach Windy Thees said. “We’ve been working hard and all of these road games will help us grow and get better as the season continues to move forward.”
Ole Miss took one of three games against the top-15 ranked Wildcats at their newly renovated stadium. The Rebels were led at the plate from junior first baseman Londen Ladner, who went 5-9 at the plate with three doubles and three RBI.
Junior center fielder RT Cantillo leads Ole Miss with a .408 batting average, including a team-high 31 hits and 23 runs scored. Sophomore third baseman Allison Brown has a team-high 21 RBI and an SEC-leading 10 doubles.
The Rebels continue to be one of the best defensive teams in the conference, posting an SEC-best .988 fielding percentage and the fewest number of errors (nine) in the conference.
Belmont (7-8) is a member of the Ohio Valley Conference along with Tennessee-Martin, who Ole Miss defeated 9-8 in eight innings at the Red & Blue Classic and will play again Wednesday in Martin, Tenn.
The Bruins are led by Kat Hollingsworth, who is hitting a team-best .431 with nine doubles, two home runs and 14 RBI. Carolyn Snodgress has paced Belmont in the circle, posting a 3-1 record with a 1.40 ERA in 35.0 innings of work.
