STILLWATER – Oklahoma State Cowgirls pitcher Morgan Day and Oklahoma State football three-year starting left guard Hunter Woodard were high school sweethearts at Tuscola High School in Illinois. Tuscola High is a Class 1-A school in Illinois with an enrollment of just over 300 students. The odds that one graduating class at Tuscola would produce two All-American caliber athletes at the Division I level. Then the odds that those two would be high school sweethearts and then the odds on what happened this past weekend. The two campus heroes in Stillwater and the power couple for OSU athletics got engaged and announced the news on Twitter.

It's been fun following Day and Woodard especially since Morgan Day finished at Illinois State where she was All-MAC and a record setting pitcher for the Redbirds softball program, which Days said drew a few fans especially alumni, but nothing like the following of the Cowgirls program.

Day was clutch for the Cowgirls all season.

There are few events that can get an Oklahoma State player to skip a summer workout and must do a makeup on Wednesdays, the normal day off in the summer. Woodard missed on June 6 to be in the USA Softball Hall of Fame Stadium to see Day and the Cowgirls in the NCAA Women’s College World Series. Woodard was always at the Cowgirls games to see Day pitch and often with Cowboy football teammates in tow.  

Day was around for the Cowboys football games even many of those when she was at Illinois State.

When I say “power couple” here is a good example as Day came in and pitched the last five innings of the Big 12 Championship Game in Oklahoma City as the Cowgirls ended Oklahoma’s dominance of the conference with an extra inning win. Woodard helped block the Cowboys to a 37-33 Bedlam win over Oklahoma to end the Sooners string of six-straight Big 12 Championships in football. That is power!

I caught up with Woodard tonight (June 21) and asked him to confirm the engagement. He did and yes, Morgan didn’t hesitate and make him wait. Her answer was an immediate yes.
