KNOXVILLE, TN (Mississippi News Now) -

A Mississippi team having a historic 2017, where have we heard that before? We said that in March about Vic Schaefer's Bulldogs.

We can say the same about Mike Smith's Rebels. Ole Miss softball has their highest ranking in program history, had their first Rebel on the All-SEC 1st Team (Kylan Becker), and set for their 2nd straight NCAA Tournament.

The Rebels made more history Thursday in Knoxville. Dylinn Stancil's two-run double in the 1st was the only offense as Ole Miss upset #1 Florida 2-0 in the SEC Tournament Quarterfinals.

Gulfport native Kaitlin Lee had another stellar start in the circle. The Harrison Central/MGCCC product tossed a two-hitter, striking out four.

Safe to say Coach Smith was on cloud 9 after a historic performance by his Rebel 9

It's the first victory over a #1 team in program history. Ole Miss achieves another first: Their first appearance in the SEC semifinals. They'll face #15 Alabama Friday at 2:00pm CT on ESPNU and online on ESPN3.com.
