FAYETTEVILLE -  The University of Arkansas softball team (5-1) concludes its fall schedule with a doubleheader Tuesday versus Northeast Oklahoma A&M. Game one begins at 3:00 p.m. at Bogle Park.

The Razorbacks went 3-1 last week, sweeping a doubleheader versus Butler Community College on Wednesday and splitting a doubleheader at Oklahoma State on Sunday.

Arkansas defeated Butler Community College by scores of 7-0 and 2-1 on Wednesday at Bogle Park. Leading the Razorbacks in the sweep was the pitching of freshman Kelly Young. She pitched ten scoreless innings on the day and struck out nine hitters.

Excellent pitching again led to a Razorback win on Sunday at Oklahoma State as Chelsea Cohen went seven innings without allowing an earned run in game one. She struck out six Cowgirl batters and did not allow a walk. Cohen was able to pick up the win as the Hogs exploded for eight runs and won the game 8-5. At the plate the team was led by SEC Freshman of the Year Devon Wallace. She went 2-5 on the day with a homerun and two walks. Also homering for the Razorbacks in game one was Amanda Summerford and Jayme Gee.

Through six games this fall the Hogs have five batters hitting over .400; Devon Wallace (.500), Claire Clark (.500), Jennifer Rambo (.467), Amanda Geile (.429) and Danielle Riddle (.429). Also showing signs of great hitting has been Clarisa Navarro, she is hitting .368 and has hit two triples and a double in five games. Head coach Mike Larabee has been pleased with the hitting this fall thus far.

“I am really proud of our team for the way we have swung the bats,” Larabee said. “For a fall ball game it is good to get the team put in those scenarios. We fell behind 3-0, but we battled back.”

This week, the team will square off with the Northeast Oklahoma A&M Lady Norse. The Lady Norse are coming off a 45-15 season and a fifth place finish in the NJCAA Division I tournament. They return seven letterwinners from last season.
