LEXINGTON, Ky. – The University of Arkansas softball team resumes Southeastern Conference play this weekend with a road trip to No. 10/8 Kentucky. The Razorbacks will play their next six games on the road beginning with their three-game set in Lexington. Game one of the SEC series is scheduled for Friday at 5 p.m. (CT) at the Wildcats’ John Cropp Stadium. Arkansas has a 25-20 overall record and carries a 3-12 mark in league play.

Games one and two of the Arkansas-Kentucky series will be televised by Fox Sports South. The television appearances will be the fifth and sixth of the season for the Razorbacks. Dick Gabriel and Jenny Dalton-Hill will hand the play-by-play and color commentary duties, respectively. Fans can also listen to a broadcast on KXUA 88.3 FM in Fayetteville or online with their RazorVision subscription.

This weekend marks the eighth single game or series against a ranked opponent with Kentucky (36-8, 10-5 SEC) also representing the Razorbacks’ fourth matchup with a top-10 team this season. In the all-time series between the two programs, Arkansas holds a 29-17 advantage including a 2-1 series win last season in Fayetteville. The Razorbacks have won 10 of the 18 games played in Lexington.

Clarisa Navarro continues to lead the team with her .359 batting average while she and Kasey Fagan are tied for the team lead with 38 RBI each. Devon Wallace has a team-high 11 home runs and 48 runs scored. She also leads the nation with 49 walks which has moved her into 10th place in NCAA history with 181 career walks. Stephanie Canfield has a team-best 52 hits, one of six Razorbacks in the lineup with 35 hits.

Entering the weekend, Arkansas is fourth-highest scoring team in the NCAA with 7.20 runs per game. Statistically, the team is also ranked among the top 25 in on-base percentage (10th/.431), slugging percentage (17th/.516), batting average (23rd/.319) and triples per game (24th/0.29). Individually, Jayme Gee has thrown out an SEC-best 12 base runners.

The Razorbacks’ next home game is April 30 against Oklahoma, a re-scheduled game from March. The midweek meeting is scheduled for a 3 p.m. start at Bogle Park and will be televised by Fox Sports.
