Cowgirls Host NPF All-Stars

Stillwater, Okla. — Oklahoma State’s Cowgirl Softball team will host a team of All-Stars from the National Pro Fastpitch league Wednesday night, capping off the fall season. First pitch is slated for 6 p.m. and admission is free.

The All-Stars include several former Big 12 players, including former Cowgirl Shanel Scott who played for from 2004-07. Scott owns the school records for most stolen bases in a season (51) and a career (108), most runs scored in a season (56) and career (162), most at-bats in a career (704), and most walks in a season (92).

Others on the squad are Danielle Lawrie (Washington), Francesca Enea (Florida), Vicky Galindo (California) and Jamee Juarez (Ohio State).

Oklahoma State is 6-1 this fall with five shutouts. The Cowgirls lost their first game last weekend with a 2-1 loss at Arkansas. However, followed that up with a 3-1 victory over the Lady’Backs.

Senior second-baseman Alysia Hamilton leads the Cowgirl offense with a .421 batting average. Junior first-baseman Julie Ward is hitting .409 with a team-leading eight runs batted in and the squad’s only two home runs of the fall.

Coach Rich Wieligman expects to throw all four pitchers at the all-stars. The Cowgirl pitching staff has combined for a 0.44 earned run average in 48 innings and has combined for five shutouts. Freshman Simone Freeman has 24 strikeouts and no walks in 15 innings this fall.
