SOFTBALL

The Cowgirls take a break from league play this weekend, when they head down to College Station to face No. 5 Texas A&M.

The Aggies have been red hot all season with a 32-3 (9-2 SEC) record. The team is batting .319, lead by Riley Sartain with an average of .409. The pitching staff has a unbelievably low ERA of 1.21. Meanwhile your Cowgirls currently hold a team batting average of .311 and are lead by Vanessa Shippy with an average of .404. The Cowgirl pitching staff holds a 3.59 ERA. The Cowgirl offense is almost on A&M’s level, so if the pitching staff can have a solid weekend, the cowgirls could be looking for an upset.

The series begins tonight at 6 p.m followed by 4 p.m. Saturday and 12 p.m. Sunday.

GOLF

The 19th ranked Cowgirls are in Athens, Georgia this weekend to play in the 45th annual Liz Murphey Collegiate Classic. It’s a combined stroke/match play tournament, with 18 holes of stroke play on Friday, followed by three rounds of match play on Saturday and Sunday.

They finished stroke play earlier today at 22-over, and tied in fifth place with Auburn and Southern California. Three players finished in the Top-15, with Emma Bronze leading the way at 3-over.

Match Play begins on Saturday. You can follow the event online at BirdieFire.com.


And of course, you can follow Oklahoma State alum Rickie Fowler during the Masters this weekend.

Former Cowboy Alex Noren was also competing, but isn’t likely to make the cut after a 6-over 78 on Friday left him at 8-over for the tournament.
