FULLERTON, Calif. - The Arizona softball team shut out Illinois in the semifinal game of the Kia Klassic on Sunday. Sophomore pitcher Alicia Hollowell's 21st victory of the season marked the Cats' 34th win of the year.

Illinois pitcher Amanda Fortune held Arizona's offense to three hits in the game and did not allow a run until the bottom of the sixth inning. Freshman Caitlin Lowe singled to short and stole second. Champion laid down a sacrifice bunt to third, advancing Lowe to third. Wendy Allen hit an RBI double to center, scoring Lowe, and scored on an Illinois throwing error.

Hollowell pitched seven shutout innings, allowing four hits and striking out nine. Sophomore Shelly Schultz had the only other Arizona hit of the game, a second-inning double down the left field line.
