The Ole Miss softball team will take a break from conference play as it hosts Louisiana Monroe today. First pitch is set for 4 p.m.

The Lady Rebel softball team will look to take a break from Southeastern Conference play, as it plays Louisiana Monroe today at the Ole Miss Softball Complex at 4 p.m.

Ole Miss (21-26) is returning home after being swept at Mississippi State this past weekend, and the Lady Warhawks (17-23) are also coming off a three-game skid after being swept at Western Kentucky over the weekend.

Louisiana Monroe has two players hitting over .300 with sophomore Alexis Cacioppo leading the team with a .311 average. Ole Miss is led offensively by freshman Madi Osias, who boasts a team-high .379 average at the plate.

Osias also has four home runs and 17 RBIs on the year.

Sophomore Haylie Wilson (7-12) leads the Warhawks in the circle with a 4.55 ERA. She has tallied 45 strikeouts to just 39 walks in 127.2 innings of work.

Junior Stephanie Routzon (10-10) has totaled 109.2 innings this season. Routzon has a team-high 48 strikeouts, but she has also issued 63 walks this season.

Junior Carly Hummel (10-14) has helped the Rebels defensively this season as she holds a 4.50 ERA.

Hummel has 100 strikeouts on the year in 124.1 innings in the circle.

She looks to return home where she pitched the school’s fourth no-hitter last Tuesday against Arkansas-Pine Bluff.
