FULLERTON, Calif. - The undefeated Arizona softball team extended its winning streak to 29 games on Wednesday with a 4-1 win over Illinois in the first day of action at the Kia Klassic Tournament hosted by Cal State Fullerton.

Arizona got on the board in the bottom of the second, when freshman Kristie Fox doubled to center off Illinois pitcher Amanda Fortune. Junior Crystal Farley singled to center, driving Fox home and putting the Cats up, 1-0.

The Wildcats scored again in the second when Jackie Coburn reached on an error and scored on a pair of singles by Fox and senior Samantha Quintero. The last two Arizona runs scored in the bottom of the fifth, when sophomore Autumn Champion bunt singled to third and stole second, followed by a two-run homer by senior Wendy Allen, her fifth of the year.

Sophomore Alicia Hollowell pitched her 18th win of the season, allowing three hits and just her tenth earned run of the year. Illinois scored their only run in the top of the seventh, a solo homer by second baseman Katie O'Connell.

The Cats will be in action again on Thursday for Day Two of the Kia Klassic, when they take on No. 15 Fresno State at 11 a.m. (noon MST).
