The eighth-seeded Ole Miss softball team stunningly won the SEC softball tournament for the first time, beating LSU in the finals.
Rebels coach Mike Smith tweeted out appreciation to Hugh Freeze, who was busy on social media over the weekend with his support of the softball Rebels.

Freeze tweeted each member of the softball team separately and congratulated them on their accomplishment. Ole Miss beat three ranked teams (top-ranked Florida, Alabama and LSU) on the way to the title.
The Rebels will host an NCAA regional in Oxford this weekend. All 13 SEC teams that play softball (Vanderbilt does not have a program) made the 64-team NCAA field.
