The historic run for Rebel softball now includes a shot at the SEC Championship. #18 Ole Miss beat #15 Alabama 4-1 Saturday in the semifinals.
The Rebels took the lead with a 3-run 2nd inning. Dakota Makito added some insurance with a solo homer. Gulfport native Kaitlin Lee went the distance again for another complete game.
Mike Smith's crew will face #21 LSU in the SEC title game. First pitch is Saturday at 7:00pm on ESPN.
A win wouldn't just mean the first conference title in program history. It could improve the Rebels chances to host NCAA regionals. The bracket will be revealed Sunday night.
