The best season in the history of Arkansas Razorbacks Softball came to a crushing end on Saturday, as the Razorbacks fell to Texas, 3-0 in game three of the Fayetteville Super Regional.

After playing a scoreless game through the 5th inning, it was Texas who cracked the scoreboard first with a three-run 6th inning.

The Longhorns opened the inning with two hits that placed both baserunners in scoring position. Alyssa Washington then stepped into the box for Texas, and battled Chenise Delce to a hitters count at 3-1. On the fifth pitch of the at-bat, Washington hit a double that cleared the bases, and gave Texas the 2-0 lead. In the next at-bat, Washington scored on an RBI single by Mary Iakopo to extend the lead to 3-0.

Over the final two innings, Arkansas would put a total of six runners on base, with only two runner going beyond 2nd base.

Arkansas was limited to five hits on the day, with Danielle Gibson collecting two of those. In the circle, Chenise Delce struck out eight batters and allowed seven hits in 6.0 innings pitched. In relief, Mary Haff allowed a hit while recording a strikeout.

The magical season for Arkansas Softball comes to a close with Saturday’s loss. The Razorbacks ended the season with a record of 48-12. Over the historic season, Arkansas won every SEC series of the season, en route to their second SEC regular season championship, as well as their first-ever SEC Tournament championship.
