  • The trip to Stillwater marks Clemson’s first Super Regional appearance.


  • Redshirt sophomore Valerie Cagle has been a dominant force for the Tigers at the plate and in the circle since her arrival to Clemson.
  • In 2022, she is posting a 1.96 ERA through 153.2 innings pitched with 172 strikeouts.
  • Cagle is used to big-game situations and thrives with the ball in her hand against ranked opponents.

  • At the ACC Softball tournament, she pitched 7.0 innings against then No. 2/2 Virginia Tech allowing only four hits and one run to score to upset the Hokies in the semifinal round.
  • At the plate in the Clemson Regional against Louisiana, Cagle went 2-for-3 with four RBIs and one run scored to propel the Tigers to their first Super Regional appearance.
  • The Yorktown, Va. native is a NFCA First Team All-Region selection, a First Team All-ACC honoree and an ACC All-Tournament player. She was also named a 2022 USA Softball Player of the Year Top 25 Finalist in April in back-to-back years.

  • Valerie Cagle and senior Marissa Guimbarda were the lone Tigers to tally a hit for Clemson.
  • The game was scoreless until the fifth inning after the Cowgirls led off with a double. A sac bunt, a walk and a single led to OSU scoring two with only one out.
  • The Clemson defense shut things down to prevent any further runs to score that inning.
  • The Tigers brought the tying run to the plate in the seventh inning but weren’t able to capitalize on it as the Cowgirls took game one.
