High Noon Highlights (1/30): Cowgirl tennis gears up for home matches

Welcome to High Noon Highlights, a place to catch up on everything you missed in Oklahoma State Athletics and beyond.

It’s high noon...

Cowgirls look to rebound in weekend home matches:

Cowgirl tennis coach Chris Young says they’re ready to redeem themselves after a loss last Sunday. The Stillwater NewsPress previewed their home matches this weekend against Arkansas and Tulsa.

“It’s like, let’s get back out here, and I think it’s great that we don’t have much time off that we’re playing again on Friday and Saturday against regional opponents that we know pretty well and know that it’s going to be a very intense atmosphere, as well. I think just to take what we learned from Sunday and apply it.” {Stillwater NewsPress}

Cowboy Baseball excited to move into O’Brate Stadium:

College baseball is coming folks! A new season will come with a new home for the Cowboys. Check out these quotes from The Oklahoman.

“I think we’ve all been waiting for this for a pretty long time,” senior Carson McCusker said.

But there is an unknown. The stadium has similar dimensions, but it could play entirely differently.

“That will be the fun part,” Holliday said. “Just seeing the first towering flyball and seeing how far it actually goes, and seeing how the sun shows up and the wind patterns.” {Oklahoman}

Oklahoma State can have solid receiver core despite transfers:

Marshall Scott highlights what the Oklahoma State wide receiver core will look like with the transfer of 4 players from the group.

Next season could be a year where some of OSU’s incoming freshmen get some run. Matt Polk, Rashod Owens and Brennan Presley didn’t enroll early, but through summer workouts and fall camp, the young pups could find some playing time thanks to all the outgoing transfers. Especially Presley in the return game.

But this group will rely heavily on the Wallace/Johnson/Stoner/Wolf unit in 2020. One downside of those four guys is Johnson is the tallest of that group at 6-1, but Wallace is the king of contested catches. And, depending on how he is used, cowboy back Jelani Woods could be the Pokes’ red-zone threat. {PFB}
