• Stanford is appearing in its sixth Super Regional and first time hosting since 2009. The last time Stanford hosted postseason softball was the 2011 season for the regional round – also Stanford's most-recent postseason appearance.
• The Cardinal (39-20) advanced to the super regionals after winning the Tuscaloosa Regional against sixth-seeded Alabama. Stanford beat the host-Crimson Tide twice on the weekend while also opening the postseason with a victory against Murray State.
• Stanford enters the Super Regional, hitting .273 as a team with four players hitting above .300. Taylor Gindlesperger leads the power category with a team-best .348 average to go along with a .489 slugging percentage and 62 total hits.
• Kaitlyn Lim checks in with a .310 batting average, 40 RBIs, 26 runs scored and seven long balls.
•Two other Cardinal batting .300 or better, including Sydnee Huff (.322, 35 runs, 10 doubles, six triples, 19 RBIs) and Emily Young (.320, 39 RBIs, 12 doubles)
• Alana Vawter (1.88 ERA) has handled Stanford's circle with 25 victories, striking out 160 with 11 shutout games. Regan Krause (1.74 ERA) has handed the rest of the work, pitching in 104.2 innings with 11 wins on the season.

• Oregon State and Stanford have played 95 times previously, most recently during the regular season Pac-12 series at home March 25-27.  
• The Beavers took the conference series just over two months ago at Kelly Field winning games one and two by scores of 1-0 and 4-1. Stanford bounced back and took the series finale 1-0 on Sunday, which is just one of three games OSU has been shutout this year.  
• The Cardinal hold the 40-55 all-time series but the Orange & Black are 17-9 under Berg.

• With its back against the wall, Oregon State (37-20) went out and won two must-win games against host and No. 11 Tennessee on Sunday, May 22 to advance to the Super Regionals for the first time since 2006 and just the second time in program history.
• With its 37 victories this season, it's the most under head coach Laura Berg and most in a single season since the 2007 campaign when the Beavers went 41-23. The record in a single season is 47 back in 1999.
• As a team, the Beavers batted .208 in five games at the Knoxville Regional with six home runs that was highlighted by three from super senior Mariah Mazon. Frankie Hammoude added a pair of long balls while Madison Simon hit her seventh of the season against Ohio State on Friday.
• Hammoude leads the power category with a team-best 15 bombs and moved into second in the program history books with a career 43 home runs. She is hitting a team-best .379 with an impressive .503 slugging percentage.
• Mazon follows Hammoude with a career-best 12 homers on the season with a .364 batting average and a .438 slugging percentage. Mazon has driven in a team-best 40 RBIs with 31 runs scored.
• Two other Beavers batting .300 or better, including Kiki Escobar (.349, 73 hits, 40 runs, 10 doubles) and Kaylah Nelsen (.308, 37 hits, 23 RBIs, eight doubles).
• Mazon leads the pitching staff with 16 victories and two saves in 33 appearances. She has thrown 174 and 1/3 frames, striking out a career-best 207 this season. The super senior needs four to tie the program record of 852.
• Freshman Sarah Haendiges has thrown the majority of the work behind Mazon, garnering 12 wins. She picked up a pair of victories at the Knoxville Regional in two starts, allowing just seven hits and struck out five in 12 innings.
• Prior to the Knoxville Regional, OSU placed four on the Pacific All-Region teams with a region-best three on first team. Bash Sisters Hammoude and Mazon and Haendiges were named to the first team while Escobar gathered a second team nod.

• The best-of-three series decides who receives one of eight slots to the 2022 Women's College World Series. Sunday's if-necessary game will only be played if both teams split Friday and Saturday's action.
• The WCWS will be played in Oklahoma City, Okla. From June 2-9/10.
