OSU Coaches Team Up Against Cancer

In yesterday’s annual Coaches vs. Cancer golf outing, a record $140,730 was donated to help find a cure for cancer.

It’s incredible knowing that there are still good people in the world that can band together and raise such an awesome amount for what (I personally believe) is one of the greatest causes there is in the world today.

Everyone knows somebody that is affected by cancer, and odds are it’s much too close for home for most of us. THANK YOU to everyone who donated and continue to support such a noble cause.

Cowgirl Softball prepares for NCAA Tournament:

After it was announced Sunday evening that the Cowgirls would be heading to Fayetteville. Arkansas for their NCAA Regional, head coach Kenny Gajewski talked to reporters about his thoughts going into the post season.

“First off I’m just excited about this team,” Gajewski said. “And everything that they’ve done to put them in a position to be a 2-seed.”

The Cowgirls’ first opponent will be Wichita State at 1:30 p.m. of Friday May,18. You can catch the game on ESPNU.

Cowboy Golf Leads Columbus Regional

After one round at the Columbus, Ohio NCAA regional, the Cowboys led the field by a stroke. Alan Bratton’s team carded a 3-under par 281, good for a one-stroke lead over UNLV. The Cowboys have finished their second round at 6-under on the day, 9-under for the tournament and leading Illinois by three strokes.

The Cowboys are joined in the Columbus Regional by Big 12 foe Texas Tech, along with Big 10 schools Illinois, Northwestern, Penn State and Michigan State. UNLV, Wake Forest, Jacksonville, Tennessee, Yale, Louisville and Cleveland State round out the field.

Zach Bauchou and Matthew Wolff are both in a 4-way tie for the lead at -3 for the tournament.

You can follow along with the Cowboys’ progress, thanks to Golfstat.

Cowboy Baseball not projected as regional host.

Despite controlling their own destiny and being a surprise team in college baseball, D1Baseball.com does not have Oklahoma State hosting a regional after dropping its last two series to Iowa and Baylor, both on the road.

Instead, the ‘experts’ have projected the Cowboys to head back out to the east coast as a 2-seed in the Clemson Regional. Remember what happened last time the Cowboys were snubbed of a regional and went to Clemson as the 2-seed? Good things.

The Cowboys would have a first-round matchup with Indiana, then advance to play the winner of Clemson and Yale.

There are five Big 12 teams projected to be in the field: Oklahoma would head to Fayetteville as the two seed, Texas Tech would host as a one seed, Baylor would head to Oxford, Mississippi as a third seed, Texas would go to DeLand, Florida as a second seed, and the Cowboys would go to Clemson.

The importance of this weekend’s series cannot be understated for the Cowboys. Thursday, Friday and Saturday the Cowboys will battle with Texas Tech in Stillwater, looking to clinch their first Big 12 title since 2014. If you are in the area, head down to Allie P. Reynolds Stadium and cheer on the Cowboys!

Have a great Tuesday everyone!
