IT’S FINALLY HAPPENING! After years of hearing that a new baseball stadium is about here, it appears that we will only have to wait two more years.

This morning, Oklahoma State tweeted out the first official acknowledgement of the new stadium. More details will be released tomorrow.

Mike Boynton offers 2019 4-star SF

Jaelyn Withers picked up another scholarship offer from Mike Boynton and the Oklahoma State Cowboys.

Withers is a 4-star prospect according to 247 Sports.

Withers also has offers from (in alphabetical order) Boston College, Charlotte, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Kansas State, N.C. State, Ole Miss, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Kentucky.

The North Carolina native is No. 95 in the 247 Sports Top 100. He is the No. 28-ranked small forward and the No. 6 player in the Tar Heel State.

Baseball wins Bedlam round 1 in Norman

Thanks to a second inning grand slam by Colin “Tank” Simpson, the Cowboys were able to get out to an early 5-0 lead after two innings.

Cowboy starter C.J. Varela pitched five strong innings, allowing one run on four hits, two walks and two strikeouts. Freshman pitcher Noah Sifrit came in for the rare four-inning save, giving up no runs, one hit, four walks and three strikeouts.

This was the annual non-conference Bedlam game, so it doesn’t help the Cowboys out in the Big 12 race, but defeating OU is good anytime, anywhere.

The Cowboys open Big 12 play this weekend as they welcome powerhouse TCU to Allie P. Reynolds Stadium.

Cowgirls drop second straight

After winning the first two Big 12 games against Iowa State, the Cowgirl softball team dropped the finale (which was a 12-inning, weather-impacted spectacle) to the Cyclones. Last night, they dropped their second consecutive game in non-conference to Wichita State by a score of 5-3.

With the loss, the Cowgirls drop 23-9 on the season. The team will continue their Big 12 schedule this weekend as they roll into Lubbock to take on the Texas Tech Red Raiders.
