Oklahoma State first to clinch Women’s College World Series berth


Oklahoma State is heading to the Women’s College World Series after completing a sweep of No. 10 seed Clemson, downing the Tigers 5-1 Friday.

Morgan Day and Kelly Maxwell led the Cowgirls from the mound, with Day giving up one run on five hits while logging four walks and five strikeouts through 5 ⅓ innings. Maxwell closed out the game, striking out the second, third and fourth batters in the Clemson lineup.

Oklahoma State’s defense has been stellar through their postseason run, committing just three errors in eight consecutive victories.

Chyenne Factor led the Cowgirls on offense, with two runs batted in, while Karli Petty added to the team’s tally with a solo home run.

“I think right now, we’re meshing as a team at the perfect time,” Day said after the game. “We talk a lot about how the best team doesn’t always win, it’s the team that plays the best. And I think we’re figuring out how we play the best and how to support the person next to you in order to play the best.”

Friday’s win sends Oklahoma State to the program’s third straight  WCWS appearance and their 14th in school history.
