The Ole Miss softball team won all five games and outscored its opponents 20-5 this weekend at the Red and Blue Classic at the Ole Miss Softball Complex. The Rebels shut out Bowling Green, Buffalo and Northern Colorado in the first three games of the tournament and then closed the tournament with wins over Saint Louis and Tennessee Martin.

"All in all, the pitching staff did a really good job this weekend, pitching into the defense and getting a lot of strikeouts," head coach Windy Thees said. "RT (Cantillo) continues to hit over .500, and Haley Culley made some outstanding defensive plays all weekend."

Ole Miss hit .325 and scored 20 runs on 40 hits for the weekend. The Rebels' two leading hitters, senior outfielder RT Cantillo and junior third baseman Allison Brown, continued to swing the bat well. 

Cantillo had a hit in each of the five games, which included a 3-for-4 game against Northern Colorado. Brown went 5-for-16 for the weekend, highlighted by a two-RBI single in a 2-0 win over Northern Colorado. Culley also had a stellar weekend at the plate, going 7-for-16 for the weekend with three multi-hit games.

On the mound, Ole Miss posted more strikeouts (32) than hits allowed (25) for the weekend. The Rebels used five pitchers and allowed just five runs -- four earned -- on 25 hits with 12 walks and 32 strikeouts over 34 innings of work. 

Senior right-hander Shelby Jo Fenter won a pair of games, as she allowed just two runs on nine hits with seven walks and 14 strikeouts, which included 6.2 scoreless innings against Bowling Green. Fellow senior right-hander Carly Hummel earned a win and two saves in eight scoreless innings for the weekend, highlighted a complete game shutout against Buffalo.

"It's a lot of fun to pitch with a staff this year," Thees said. "All of our kids are super talented. They do a good job of attacking the strike zone. They have some nasty stuff and are very different. For me, it's kind of fun to go to somebody else who may be different than the person who started on the mound, and we did that a lot this weekend."

With a doubleheader sweep at Southern Miss followed by a five-game sweep at the Red and Blue Classic, the Rebels have won seven in a row and improve to 11-6 on the season. Their current seven-game winning streak is two shy of equaling the longest winning streak in program history, which they tied a season ago.

"We're still growing," Thees said. "We're still trying to figure some things out. There are still some consistency issues at the place. I would like our hitter to be better at swinging at their pitches early in the count. We're getting there. I saw more of that this weekend."

    I am not and never have been an Ole Miss fan. I am however a Coach Freeze fan. I like what he represents in today's world of big time sports and what he stands for in leading young men of today into a more responsible role. He is everything that Ole Miss has never had. I am on his band wagon winning or losing.
