FAYETTEVILLE – Riding an 11-game winning streak, the No. 24 University of Arkansas softball team returns to Bogle Park this weekend to host the Wooo Pig Fastpitch Classic. The Razorbacks play two games Friday to begin the tournament, opening with Stephen F. Austin at 3 p.m. (CT). Originally scheduled as a three-day competition, the Wooo Pig Classic has been shortened to two days due to expected inclement weather Sunday.

Arkansas (13-3) is joined in this weekend’s field by Drake, Louisiana Tech and Stephen F. Austin with scheduled round-robin play to determine the third-place and championship games. In addition to the opener against SFA, the Razorbacks’ other round-robin games will be Friday against Drake at 5:30 p.m. and Saturday against Louisiana Tech at 11:30 a.m. Arkansas owns a 13-7 combined advantage against the other three teams in the field.

The Razorbacks earned its first top-25 ranking of the season when polls were released Tuesday with a No. 24 spot in the ESPN.com/USA Softball poll. During its current 11-game winning streak, the team is outscoring its opponents 121-15 with at least eight runs scored in each win. Through the first three weeks of the season, Arkansas leads the SEC in batting average, slugging percentage, on-base percentage, runs scored, RBI, triples, total bases, walks and sacrifice flies.

In its most recent outing, Arkansas posted an undefeated weekend at the FGCU Round Robin in Ft. Myers, Fla. The run included a no-hitter by Grace Moll against Eastern Michigan and a school-record 20 runs scored against North Dakota. For her performance during the week, senior Clarisa Navarro was named the Co-SEC Player of the Week after hitting .588 with 12 RBI and 10 runs scored in the Razorbacks’ last six games.

Sophomore Stephanie Canfield leads Arkansas with a .420 batting average and 21 hits while Kasey Fagan, Amanda Geile, Parker Pocklington and Devon Wallace are tied for the team lead with three home runs each. Fagan has a team-best 20 runs scored and is tied with Navarro for the team lead with 19 RBI. In the circle, Moll has a team-leading six wins and 37 strikeouts while Kimmy Beasley eclipsed 300 career strikeouts in her last start Feb. 21 vs. North Dakota.

During the season, UA students and fans 17 years and younger get into all Arkansas softball games for free with valid ID. General admission tickets are $4 while tickets for groups of 10 or more are $1 at the ticket window. Season tickets for the 2014 campaign are still available for $45 in addition to opportunity for fans to rent suites at Bogle Park during the year.
