No. 15 Kentucky softball travels to Northern Kentucky on Wednesday, March 29 in Highland Heights, Ky.
The Wildcats are fresh off a three-game sweep of then-22nd-ranked Arkansas, moving their record to 22-6 overall (4-2 SEC). It was a much-needed sweep, coming a week after Kentucky dropped two of three games to Georgia in Athens.
Kentucky gets a brief reprieve over the next four games, beginning with Northern Kentucky (6-19) and then a three-game weekend series at Ole Miss — the SEC’s last-place team.

What you should know
Fighting for position in the SEC
At 4-2 in conference play, Kentucky currently sits tied for fifth in the SEC with LSU. It’s a long way to the top, as No. 3-ranked Florida is in the middle of a 21-0 streak and is 7-0 in the conference. A sweep this weekend against Ole Miss could vault the Wildcats closer to second place in the conference standings, a position that would set them up for a deep run in the SEC softball tournament.
Cheek’s big weekend
Kentucky slugger Abby Cheek had a big weekend in the sweep against Arkansas, going 4 for 7 with 1 home run and 4 RBI in the series. For the season, she’s hitting .386 with 6 home runs and 24 RBI. Be ready for another big game from her; Northern Kentucky has given up 43 runs in its last five games, a stretch in which it lost four of those matchups.
