The Sooners return to Norman for their first home game March 6 after playing 20 games in an array of tournaments in the OU Softball tournament.
Oklahoma lost four key starters in seniors Sydney Romero, Shay Knighten, Falepolima Aviu and Caleigh Clifton — who all made appearances in three Women’s College World Series final.
The new-look Sooners led by returners pitcher Giselle “G” Juarez, outfielder Jocelyn Alo, Division 1 record holder for most home runs by a freshman in a single season with 30 and reigning Big 12 Freshman of the Year first basemen Grace Green.
These Sooners have big shoes to fill with the team one year removed from the regular season record for longest win-streak with 39 in a row.
