Softball – 2019 Ole Miss Classic Preview

Softball – 2019 Ole Miss Classic Preview


Your first chance to see the
Ole Miss softball team in action in Oxford
is this weekend with the Rebels hosting Pitt and Nicholls
for the Ole Miss Classic. The Rebels have been to the NCAA
tournament three years in a row, and they’re trying
to set themselves up for a fourth
straight trip to the dance. Ole Miss has already faced
a handful of ranked opponents, which will help prepare the
Red-and-Blue for league play. There are lots of familiar faces
on the 2019 squad that have already made
a big impact this season, including senior Kylan Becker. The pre-season
All League outfielder is hitting well over .300
to begin the year. A pair of sophomores
have gotten their second season in the Red-and-Blue
off to a bang. Abbey Latham attacks and pops,
carrying over from how she played in
the Tempe Regional last season. And Jessica Puk entered the week leading the Rebs
in three offensive categories. Senior Brittany Finney has also
been getting the job done at the plate and in the circle. Teamed up with Molly Jacobsen
and Ava Tillman, Mike Smith and company
have the pitching staff to handle business in 2019. For a full schedule
of the Ole Miss Classic, be sure to head
to olemisssports.com, and if you can’t come out
to the park, you can keep up
with updates all weekend long on Twitter, @olemisssoftball.
