SHAWNEE — The Oklahoma Baptist softball team will play Southern Arkansas in a four-game series starting with a Friday doubleheader at 3 p.m. The two will conclude the series with a Saturday doubleheader beginning at 12 p.m. Southern Arkansas was ranked number one in NCAA Division II earlier this season and comes into the series on a 10-game win streak.

Animal Rescue Shawnee will be in attendance with puppies to adopt. The Doggie Spot will also be on location with training information, tennis balls, and sponsor a drawing for a special dog-centric basket.
Cheyenne Demaree comes in with the hot bat for OBU, having driven in seven runs with two home runs including a grand slam in the doubleheader against Southern Nazarene. Demi Dobbs returned to action and posted two hits with one RBI against the Crimson Storm.
