The Cowgirls picked up another pair of All-America accolades on Wednesday.

The NFCA named Oklahoma State pitcher Lexi Kilfoyl a First Team All-American, while Liberty transfer catcher Caroline Wang was named a Third Team All-American.

This is already the third All-America honor Kilfoyl has picked up, after D1 Softball and Softball America put her on their First Teams earlier this week. Among the myriad other accolades she has picked up this season, Kilfoyl was also the Big 12 Pitcher of the Year and a finalist for the USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year award.

Kilfoyl is 26-3 this season with a 1.06 ERA and 146 strikeouts to just 30 walks. She earned wins in all five of the Cowgirls’ NCAA Tournament games to this point, throwing 28 of the 33 innings in OSU’s Regional and Super Regional. She gave up just four runs off 17 hits in those games while striking out 27 and walking one.

After a successful stint at Liberty that saw her earn ASUN Player of the Year honors the past two seasons, Wang transferred to Stillwater this offseason and has provided the Cowgirls a reliable bat from the catcher spot.

Wang is hitting a team-best .380 on the season. She also leads the Cowgirls in hits (68), home runs (17) and RBIs (51). She is hitting .467 in the postseason.

Kilfoyl, Wang and the Cowgirls are set to start their WCWS journey at 8:30 p.m. Thursday in Oklahoma City with a game against Florida.
