Athens, Ga. - The University of Arkansas softball team closed out its 2012 regular season dropping a game at Georgia 7-1. This gives Arkansas an overall season record of 27-26 and 7-21 in the Southeastern Conference. Georgia moves to 40-14 overall and 17-11 in the SEC.
 
Arkansas collected its first hit of the game in the top of the first when Clarisa Navarro hit a line drive down the left field line for a double. She was then advanced to third from a fielder's choice off a hit from Chloe Oprzedek. Jennifer Rambo hit a hard line drive right at the short stop forcing her to make an error and allowing Rambo to make it to first, while Navarro ran home for the 1-0 lead. Sierra Bronkey recorded her first hit on the day with a single to right field. Bronkey's hit advanced Rambo all the way to third. Unfortunately, Rambo and Bronkey were left on base.
 
Georgia answered in the bottom of the first with a two-run home run from shortstop Paige Wilson. Jayme Gee made a tremendous diving catch in foul territory to get the first out of the inning.
 
Linnea Ketcher kept Arkansas's hitting going in the second, dropping the ball between the left fielder and short stop for a single.
 
Georgia put another run on the board in the bottom of the second with a home run hit over the left center field wall giving it the 3-1 lead.
 
The third inning was quiet, with neither team able to put a run on the board. 
 
Georgia struck again in the fourth bringing home a runner off of a sacrifice fly, giving the Bulldogs the 4-1 lead. Tess Sito collected a double for the Bulldogs with a hard hit ball down the left field line while also bringing in another run for Georgia. Sito was then brought in off a single to give Georgia the 6-1 lead going into the fifth.
 
Georgia hit a solo home run in the bottom of the fifth to give it the 7-1 lead.
 
Rambo collected her first hit on the day in the sixth with a ball hit down the right field line for a double. She was advanced to third off a fielder's choice with a hit from Bronkey. Unfortunately, Georgia's pitcher collected a strikeout, stranding Rambo on third.
 
Arkansas forced Georgia to use the least amount of batters in the bottom of the sixth, going three-up and three-down.
 
Arkansas tried to rally in the bottom of the seventh after Mort was walked and Devon Wallace hit a single to right field, but were unable to bring either home, ending the game with a strikeout.
 
The Razorback with a record of 27-26 are eligible for post season play, but must wait until the NCAA selection show which will take place next Sunday.
