Tiare Jennings and Jocelyn Alo led the way at the plate and Hope Trautwein collected her eighth complete game shutout of the season as the Oklahoma Sooners rebounded from their first loss of the NCAA tournament with a 15-0 win over UCLA. The win puts Oklahoma through to the Women’s College World Series championship for the third-straight time and eighth time in program history.
The Sooners started fast with three-run innings in the first two frames and then exploded for eight runs in the fifth to secure their 40th run-rule win of the season in dominating fashion.
UCLA is arguably the greatest program in softball history and after the Sooners’ first loss of the postseason, made them look like newcomers to the Women’s College World Series. Their 15-0 win marked the largest win in WCWS history.
Now the Oklahoma Sooners move on to face the winner of the other WCWS semifinal featuring Oklahoma State and Texas. Texas picked up a 5-0 win over the Cowgirls to force the deciding game between the two sides. However, before we get to the championship series for the Oklahoma Sooners, let’s take a look at their incredible performance over UCLA with these stunning still images.
