*Softball (30-21) completed play in its second-consecutive Sooner Athletic Conference tournament. After losing a tough 1-0 decision to Mid-America Christian and then falling to NAIA No. 3-ranked Oklahoma City, the Aggies reached their milestone 30th win with a 10-1 victory over Langston in the pool play finale. It was the first time on record that that OPSU softball has finished at or above the .500 mark in the 24-year history of the program. Senior pitcher Lindsay Jacobs (14-7) threw the complete game, allowing five hits and posting four shutout frames before the Lady Lions scored their run. She struck out seven Lady Lions and did not walk a batter in putting the exclamation point on her two years in the Panhandle colors. For her OPSU career, Jacobs racked up 21 victories (21-20) in 54 appearances in the circle. She had 17 complete games and threw 244.0 innings, pilling up 146 strikeouts of opponent batters.
*Baseball (20-27) closed the books on 2019 with its second-straight post-season SAC tournament appearance. In its SAC opener, Panhandle gave the second-seeded Oklahoma City team all it wanted, eventually falling by a 10-9 score. Despite the setback, the Aggies displayed some “pop” versus the Stars – ranked No. 7 in the NAIA – slugging four home runs in the game by Luis Rodriguez, Jared Mayeda, Claytin Beaver and Gerson Padilla. Mayeda was 5-for-5 with two runs and four RBI in the close loss. In its elimination game, the Aggies fell to Texas Wesleyan to end their season, despite rolling up 12 hits versus the Rams’ staff.
