Kenny Gajewski and the Cowgirls are headed back to the Women’s College World Series for the fifth straight season. It was a similar story on Saturday as Oklahoma State cruised to a 10-4 win over Arizona to clinch the Stillwater Super Regional.

Oklahoma State continued its home run-hitting ways. Jilyen Poullard let Tallen Edwards have the spotlight at the top of the order this time. The third baseman hit a two-run homer in the first. Rosie Davis and Claire Timm went back-to-back in the third inning. Poullard, Caroline Wang and Lexi McDonald also drove in runs.

The Arizona lineup found more success against Ivy Rosenberry. The dynamic duo at the top of the order Dakota Kennedy and Regan Shockey combined for a double and single to get one back in the first. Emily Schepp hit a two-run home run that knocked Rosenbery out.

Gajewski turned back to Lexi Kilfoyl with a decent lead to ensure the Cowgirls closed things out on Saturday. Kilfoyl rolled even through a multi-hour weather delay. She tossed four innings, allowing four hits and one earned run to secure another trip to Oklahoma City.
