OXFORD, Miss. – Coming off a three-game series played in two days due to inclement weather at No. 23 Georgia, the Ole Miss softball team (19-18, 1-8 Southeastern Conference) returns home to Oxford for a three-game series beginning Friday against No. 3 Florida.

Friday’s game against Florida (31-3, 7-2 SEC) will begin at 6 p.m. CT, while Saturday’s game is scheduled to start at 2 p.m. CT and Sunday’s series finale will start at 1 p.m. CT.

The Rebels enter Friday’s series opener coming off  a three-game series against an explosive Georgia team that saw a combined 15 home runs hit. In its doubleheader Saturday at Georgia, the Rebels hit a combined five home runs, including two by senior Erinn Jayjohn.

Junior outfielder RT Cantillo continues to lead Ole Miss with a team-high .340 batting average, while sophomore third baseman Allison Brown leads the SEC with 14 doubles, and has also knocked in a team-high 26 RBI. Junior catcher Marina Parra has thrown out an SEC-leading 11 base runners on stolen base attempts, and senior outfielder Brittany Broome is second in the conference with 25 stolen bases, ranking 21st nationally.

Defensively, the Rebels have been stingy this season. Ole Miss leads the SEC and the country with a .986 fielding percentage, committing just 13 errors in 37 games, the fewest in the league. In fact, Ole Miss has committed multiple errors in a game just once all season.

Ole Miss has been led in the circle by juniors Carly Hummel and Shelby Jo Fenter. In her last appearance at the Ole Miss Softball Complex, Hummel pitched a complete game shutout, allowing just four hits, zero walks and fanning five against Samford.

On Friday, the first 100 fans will receive a free Ole Miss pennant.

Saturday is the fourth annual “Kids Take Over the Park Day,” where kids will help with multiple aspects of game operations throughout the game. Saturday is also Crawfish Saturday, with 100 pounds of free crawfish available in the outfield.

In addition to Sundae Sunday for the series finale on Easter, there will be an Easter egg game where all fans will receive an Easter egg with candy and a name of an Ole Miss player. If that player is the first in the softball game to do any of the following actions (have a hit, throw a strikeout, hit a home run, steal a base, record an RBI or catch a foul ball), be the first to bring it to the press box for a prize.

Florida, which is No. 2 in the first RPI rankings of the year, ranks second in the country in win-loss percentage (.912), fourth in the nation in ERA (1.41), fifth in fielding percentage (.979), eighth in both scoring (7.18) and home runs per game (1.32), and ninth in stolen bases per game (2.24).

Gators junior pitcher Hannah Rogers (17-2), the reigning SEC Pitcher of the Week, entered this week ranking sixth in the country with 17 wins, and 13th in ERA (1.13). Sophomore first baseman/pitcher Lauren Haeger leads the SEC with 44 RBI, and entered the week eighth nationally with 12 home runs. Freshman infielder Kelsey Stewart leads the Gators with a .405 batting average.
