In spite of winning five of its final six games that incorporated a three-game clear at Oregon, Oregon State was left out for the 2019 NCAA softball tournament field.
The 64-group bracket was uncovered Sunday night, and five Pac-12 groups arrived in the field, including UCLA, Washington and Arizona among the top six seeds.
Be that as it may, left out was Oregon State, which has participated in the previous three NCAA tournaments.
Oregon State, which had a RPI of 41 heading into the week, was one of the first four groups prohibited from the field. No group with a higher RPI missed the tournament field.
The Beavers finish up their season with a 26-19 record.
Additionally out is Oregon, which completed last in the Pac-12. This is the first run through since 2009 that the Beavers and Ducks didn’t qualify for postseason play.
