OSU Softball Preview-The Outfield

OSU Softball Preview-The Outfield

Cheyenne Factor and Katelyn Carwile will lead an experienced outfield this year for Oklahoma State.

Coach Kenny Gajewski will look to fill a key spot in the outfield this year after the departure of Chelsea Alexander.

Factor will lead the outfield this season, where she played all last year.

Factor hit 10 homeruns and 35 RBIs with a .303 batting average last season. That was good for Second-Team All-Big 12 and Second-Team NFCA All-Region honors. Factor is looking to end her career on a high note this season.

Another returner in the outfield is Katelynn Carwhile, where she hit .335 with 33 RBIs and 54 hits last year. 

Carwile was Third-team All-American and Second-team All-Big 12 last year and is looking to build off that this year for the Cowgirls. 

Junior utility player Scotland David is coming back from injury last year for OSU. 

She is new to the outfield, for she was used as only a baserunner in 2021 stealing nine bases for the Cowgirls. She will be one of the Cowgirls looking for playing opportunities this season.

Newcomers in the outfield will be huge for the Cowgirls this year. Haidyn Sokoloski, Katie Lott and Angelina Craig are all incoming freshmen for the Cowgirls in 2023.

Lott is the one who could see playing time in the outfield for the Cowgirls this season. 

Lott is a decorated athlete from high school, leading her team to a state championship and named to the All-State Team in Texas. 

Craig is another talented freshman added to the roster. 

Craig had an outstanding .530 batting average in her senior season in Iowa. Look for the coaching staff to use her in different ways this season. 

Sokoloski is a decorated freshman as well for the Cowgirls. 

The No. 17 nationally ranked prospect, Sokoloski also played on the 18U USA National Team in 2022. She’s going to be used several ways in her career at OSU.

With experience and fresh faces, the OSU outfield will look to be key in the Cowgirls reaching the WCWS in 2023.
