Former Ole Miss infielder Blaise Biringer is transferring to Arizona, she announced on social media on Sunday.
“I’m coming back home!” Biringer captioned an Instagram post on Sunday afternoon. “Following Jesus requires a change in direction. I must daily fill and focus my mind with God’s thoughts including His plans for my life. I’m beyond grateful to everyone who has supported me throughout this process. I have decided to continue my academic and softball career at the University of Arizona. I love what this program represents. Thank you Coach Cait for giving me such an amazing opportunity. I’m excited to be back in Tucson and get to work! BEAR DOWN.”
Biringer, a native of Nogales, Arizona, entered the portal in early September in the midst of Ole Miss’ highly-publicized program drama.
An SEC All-Freshman selection as a true freshman in 2021, Biringer started at second base for the Rebels and finished second on the team with a .337 batting average. Biringer’s average was the fourth-highest mark in the nation for a freshman. She collected 64 hits, six doubles, and five triples on the year, as well as two home runs and 21 RBIs.
During the Tucson regional, Biringer enjoyed multi-hit performances in each of her team’s four postseason games, finishing the tournament with a .500 batting average and four runs scored.
