Watch: Cowgirl Softball Reacts to Fayetteville Regional Selection, Get No. 2 Seed

Written by Jacob Overton

After winning their final game in the Big 12 Softball Tournament and taking fifth place, the Oklahoma State Cowgirls were selected as the No. 2 seed in a Fayetteville Regional full of familiar faces.

Oklahoma State has faced off against Arkansas and Wichita State five times each over the past three seasons in games full of intrigue and animosity. The Cowgirls look to settle the score with a Wichita State squad that’s bested them twice this season, and look forward to an opportunistic matchup against longtime rival in Arkansas.

OSU’s first game is on Friday, May 18 at 1:30 p.m. on ESPNU against the Wichita State Shockers. It is a double-elimination regional and here you can find the weekend’s full schedule.

“This time of year, none of these things are easy,” said head coach Kenny Gajewski. “All of these teams are very good. We’re familiar with all these teams. We’ve played them all in my three years here. I’m excited for our fans, too, that they get a chance to go watch. It’s a big deal to be this close.”
