FAYETTEVILLE-The University of Arkansas softball team wraps up the fall season with two tournaments this weekend at Lady’Back Yard.
Saturday, Oct. 1, the Lady Razorbacks host Bacone College, Seminole State College and Northeastern Oklahoma A&M in the Arkansas Fall Invitational. The Lady’Backs play at 9:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 2, Arkansas meets Northeastern Oklahoma State, Eastern Oklahoma State and Connors State in the Lady’Back Fall Invitational. Arkansas plays at 11:00 a.m., 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.
Arkansas softball head coach Jamie Pinkerton said he hopes the final six games of the fall prime the Lady’Backs for the 2006 season, which begins February 10.
“It should provide more stiff competition from the stand point of what we are trying to accomplish in the fall,” Pinkerton said. “So hopefully we get everything done to prepare for that and get the kind of rotations that we need to finish out the fall and kind of have an idea for the spring.”
Senior Blaire Perry leads the Arkansas offense with a .818 batting average while the Lady’Backs are hitting .388 as a squad. In the circle, the Lady’Backs have a combined 0.56 ERA in five games.
