Texas Softball Advances to Super Regionals With 7-0 Win Over Northwestern

Texas pitcher Citlaly Gutierrez (77) pitches during the Big 12 softball tournament game between the Texas Longhorns and the Kansas Blue Jays at USA Softball Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City, on Friday, May 12, 2023.

The Texas Longhorns defeated Northwestern 7-0 in NCAA Tournament’s Austin Regional, clinching home-field advantage in the Super Regionals.

Texas will face Texas A&M in the Super Regionals starting on Thursday, May 23rd. Meantime, Northwestern’s season comes to an end after becoming the Big 10 regular season champions.


Freshman pitcher Teagan Kavan struck out a season-best 12 batters while also only allowing one hit. In the first inning, a single from Katie Stewart brought in two runs to give Texas the early lead.

Mia Scott hit a three-run home run to extend the Longhorn lead to 5-0 during the second inning. Then in the fourth inning, Vivi Martinez hit a triple to bring in another run as Texas led 6-0. Alyssa Washington scored the final run of the game in the fifth-inning to up the Longhorn lead at 7-0.

Through five innings, Kavan was on pace to throw a no-hitter before Angela Zedik completed the Wildcats’ first hit in the sixth inning.

She earned the complete-game win as Northwestern failed to score a single run. The one-hitter thrown by Kavan means that the next round will be held at McCombs Field in Austin, Texas.

This marks the fifth-straight season where the Longhorns have advanced to the Super Regionals.
