HAMMOND, La. – After having all five of its games canceled at the San Diego Classic I from Feb. 28-March 2, the Ole Miss softball team added two games to its schedule with a doubleheader at Southeastern Louisiana in Hammond, La., on Monday. The Rebels and Lady Lions will play at 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. CT.
Ole Miss (19-18) enters Monday’s doubleheader with a 16-9 record in non-conference action this year. After Monday’s doubleheader against Southeastern Louisiana (13-7), the Rebels will have just two more non-conference games for the remainder of the regular season.

Senior center fielder RT Cantillo continues to lead Ole Miss at the plate with a team-high .495 batting average. Cantillo is tied for the team lead with 22 runs scored and seven doubles. Junior third baseman Allison Brown is batting .348. She too has 22 runs and seven doubles this season, and has also hit four home runs and driven in 22 runs. Senior first baseman Londen Ladner has hit a team-high six home runs and 27 RBIs.
In the circle, senior Carly Hummel (8-7) has thrown a team-high 91.0 innings, struck out a team-high 84 batters and thrown a team-high seven complete games. Fellow senior pitcher Shelby Jo Fenter (5-4) has a team-best ERA of 3.26, and is second on the team with 63 strikeouts in 53.2 innings of action.
For Southeastern Louisiana, Katie Lacour has a batting average of .368, tops on the team among those with at least 25 at bats, and a team-high 20 runs. Megan Moore has knocked in a team-high 28 RBIs and seven home runs.
In the circle, Taylor Bishop (3-6) has thrown a team-high 62.1 innings, while Spencer Adkinson (4-3) has a team-best ERA of 2.72 in 46.1 innings of action.
