Ole Miss Softball With Walk-Off Win Against JSU

For the third time this year, senior Miranda Strother lifted Ole Miss to a walk-off victory, as the No. 20 Rebels defeated Jacksonville State, 2-1, Wednesday afternoon at the Ole Miss Softball Complex.
After both teams traded single runs in the first three frames, Ole Miss RHP Kaitlin Lee and the Gamecocks’ Whitney Gillespie settled in with three scoreless innings. The Rebels (32-16) loaded the bases in the seventh thanks to a trio of singles, before Strother’s walk-off secured the team’s seventh walk-off of the season.
Lee, in her 25th start of the year, worked her 15th complete game with only one run allowed off six hits and three strikeouts. Gillespie (16-4) walked four and allowed 10 hits in her 6.1 innings pitched.
Offensively, sophomore Kylan Becker collected her 17th multi-hit game after going 3-for-4. Junior Paige McKinney finished 2-for-3, while Elantra Cox and Ashton Lampton scored the two runs. Cox, Strother, Sarah Van Schaik, and Kaylee Horton all had one walk each.
The Gamecocks (34-10) wasted no time in getting on the board in the first after Lee issued two walks, and a double into left-center scored one putting the visitors on top 1-0. Jamie McGuire also attempted to score on the play, but Strother fired a rope into home for her seventh outfield assist of the season cutting down the runner.
From there, it remained a 1-0 game until the third when Ole Miss scored its first run. Cox led off the inning with a walk, before Becker singled and Strother also walked to load the bases. Van Schaik then rolled a ground ball to third that would score Cox, tying it up 1-1. The Rebels had a chance to score later in that inning when Alyssa Gonzalez singled up the middle, but Strother was called out at home and Bry Castro got doubled up at second base.
Brittany Finney led off the fourth with a double to right-center giving the Rebels early life in that frame, but a line drive double play thwarted any momentum keeping it 1-1 through four.
The Rebels got the seventh inning started thanks to a leadoff single from McKinney, before Cox singled to left and Becker reached on a single back to the pitcher. That set up a bases loaded situation for Strother, who singled to the shortstop forcing a throw home, scoring Lampton which walked it off for Ole Miss.

Ole Miss’ Arianne Hartono Earns All-SEC First Team Honors

There are 11 teams, 12 players and 14 doubles teams from the Southeastern Conference in the latest Oracle/ITA Top 25 Rankings, making Thursday’s announcement of the SEC postseason awards a list of the best in college tennis. Ole Miss junior All-American Arianne Hartono is among the elite, earning All-SEC first team honors.
This is the third year in a row for Hartono (Meppel, Netherlands) to be recognized by the SEC. Last year, she was named to the second team and in 2015 she made the All-Freshman Team.
“To be named first team All-SEC is a tremendous honor for Arianne,” head coach Mark Beyers said. “This conference is a who’s who of college tennis. Arianne has established herself as one of the premier players in this conference. Playing at No. 1 singles and No. 1 doubles she has a tough task every time she steps on the court. Ari has worked extremely hard to get to this point and is excited about finishing the year strong during the NCAA’s.”
Hartono is ranked No. 27 in the nation in singles and also ranked twice in the top 25 in doubles, including No. 21 with current partner Alexa Bortles. She owns a 18-13 overall record, 13-10 at No. 1 singles.
With Hartono’s leadership at the top of the lineup, the Rebels have positioned themselves to receive their ninth straight NCAA bid. Hartono is also in position to earn her second NCAA bid in singles and doubles.
The field of 64 for the NCAA Team Championships will be revealed May 2 at 4:30 p.m. CT on NCAA.com, while the individual selections will be announced on May 3.

The Ole Miss women’s basketball team gained the services of Panhandle Conference first team all-conference selection Barbara Johnson from Chipola College, head coach Matt Insell announced on Thursday. Johnson will join the Rebels for the 2017-18 season and have two years of eligibility remaining.
“We’re excited Barbara is joining our program,” said Insell. “She’s someone we have been following for a while now and it’s a great feeling knowing she will be suiting up for the Rebels. She is immensely talented and has the potential to be a very special player here at Ole Miss. We can’t wait to get her to Oxford and start working with her.”
Johnson, a native of Ontario, Canada, averaged 11.8 points per game while shooting at a 43.7 percent clip last season. In 33 games, the guard grabbed 3.4 rebounds per game and dished out 3.2 assists per game. Johnson posted 19 games in double figures and had her best game of the season against Gulf Coast State with 34 points, shooting a blistering 62.5 percent from the floor. She also pulled down a season-best 10 rebounds in a win over Pensacola State and had a season-best eight assists against Tallahassee Community College.
The Canadian led her team to 16 straight wins to open the season as the Lady Indians received the No. 3 seed in the National Junior College Championship and advanced to the quarterfinals. Chipola also reached the Region Eight Championship this season.
