It’s high noon.....

Cowboys land in Baseball regional:

Oklahoma State found out its fate yesterday. It will be the Tuscon regional. They will face off against Arizona, Grand Canyon, and UC Santa Barbara. The committee did them no favors as this will be a very tough set of teams to get through.

The NCAA Tucson Regional opens play Friday with OSU facing UC Santa Barbara (39-18) at 3 p.m. (CST) at Hi Corbett Field. The second game pits Arizona (40-15) vs. Grand Canyon (39-19-1) at 9 p.m. (CST). Times for the Saturday and Sunday games, as well as Monday’s if-necessary game, will be announced at a later time. OSU brings a 35-17-1 record into the NCAA tourney and is coming off a run to the Big 12 Conference Baseball Championship title game last week. The Cowboys finished fourth in the league’s regular season standings. The 2021 NCAA Regional appearance will mark the eighth in a row for the Cowboys, and OSU is making its 46th NCAA Tournament appearance, a total that ranks fourth all time. OSU owns an all-time NCAA tourney record of 153-98 (.610), with the 153 wins ranking sixth in NCAA history. {okstate.com}

Cowgirl Softball headed to Women’s College World Series:

The Cowgirls took down the Texas Longhorns to advanced to Oklahoma City. They won behind a great game from pitcher Carrie Eberle.

OSU turned to ace Carrie Eberle in the circle, who pitched her 19th complete game of the season. Eberle recorded her seventh shutout of the season, allowing just four hits on the day and striking out three Longhorns. The final game of the best-of-three Super Regional was a true pitcher’s duel. The only runs of the game were scored by the Cowgirls in the fifth inning, when OSU put up a two-spot that would stand as the final score. {okstate.com}

Coach Boynton has important conversations:

The history of the Tulsa Massacre is one that does not get told very often. But it’s a conversation that head basketball coach Mike Boynton wanted to have with his players.
