COLUMBIA, M.O. (WETM) – Horseheads grad Kendal Cook and the Missouri softball team are headed to the NCAA Super Regionals.

The Tigers punched their ticket on Sunday with a 5-0 win against Iowa State in the NCAA Columbia Regional. Cook scored a run on a wild pitch as a pinch runner for the Tigers to give Missouri a 4-0 lead in the third inning. Cook is in her sophomore season as an infielder and outfielder and has scored 14 runs this season for the Tigers. Jordan Weber tossed the first postseason no-hitter for Missouri since 2011.

Eighth-seeded Missouri (41-15) went 3-0 in the NCAA Columbia Regional and did not allow a run. The Tigers advance to the Super Regionals for the first time since 2016 and will face James Madison.
