The Oregon Softball Team has arrived in Stillwater, Oklahoma.

The Ducks got to practice Wednesday at Cowgirl Stadium before game one of the Super Regional against Oklahoma State.

Oregon Head Coach Missy Lombardi and Oklahoma State Head Coach Kenny Gajewski know each other from their college days at Oklahoma in the 90's.

Gajewski even reached out to Missy and her husband ahead of their trip to Stillwater.

"I tried to invite them over, I'm not sure if they'll come over or not,” said Gajewski. “But I did, I said 'Hey just put the stuff down for a moment, let's come hang out for an hour or so.' Not sure if that'll happen but Missy is a worker. She always has been, she was like that when she played."

Lombardi said, "It's about just going and competing on the field against a faceless opponent. But I think of Kenny and what he's done with this program and just all the success he has. I'm impressed with him and everything that he's done."
