FISCHER out as Cowgirl coach

Updated:

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) _ Sandy Fischer is leaving Oklahoma State after 23 years as softball coach, the university announced Thursday.

No reason was given for the change.

``Coach Fischer has brought national prominence in the softball program to the university and she will be missed,'' athletic director Terry Don Phillips said in a news release. ``She is an outstanding coach and individual. We wish her the very best.''

Fischer has a career record of 900-383-3. She led the Cowgirls to nine Big Eight titles and 17 postseason appearances, including nine trips to the AIAW Nationals or the NCAA Women's College World Series, most recently in 1998.

She coached 16 All-America players, 60 first-team all-conference selections and 49 academic all-conference players.

``It has been an extraordinarily successful 23 years at OSU,'' Fischer said. ``I have had an opportunity to coach some of the best athletes in the nation and world. I look forward to relaxing and taking a breather and continuing to be a supporter of OSU athletics.''
