Sophomore infielder Grace Lyons, junior utility Jocelyn Alo and freshman catcher Kinzie Hansen celebrate after scoring during the home opener against Northwestern Feb. 28.

Oklahoma (16-4) beat Wichita State, (8-13) 8-5, on Wednesday evening in Norman. 

The Sooners got down early, falling behind 4-0 in the top of the first inning. The Sooners responded quickly, however, scoring five runs in the bottom of the second to give them a 5-4 lead. 

Freshman Mackenzie Donihoo got the scoring started when she blasted a double to center, bringing in Eliyah Flores and Lynnsie Elam. Sophomore Grace Lyons joined in on the fun, hitting a moonshot to center and bringing in three runs. 

Oklahoma’s bats never cooled off, and the Shockers’ offense couldn’t keep up. The Sooners went on to win it, 8-5.

The Sooners will be back in action on Friday afternoon, as they take on Mercer at 2:30 in the first game of a doubleheader in Norman.
