The Oklahoma State softball coaching staff was selected to the NFCA Midwest Regional Coaching Staff of the Year following its efforts in guiding the Cowgirls back to the Women’s College World Series for the first time since 2011.

It is the second time head coach Kenny Gajewski and his staff have been recognized during his four seasons in Stillwater. They were previously honored after the 2017 season.

The Cowgirls were 45-17 and made their fourth straight appearance in the NCAA Tournament in 2019.
