OU softball sweeps Texas in WCWS finals, winning fourth straight NCAA title

OU softball sweeps Texas in WCWS finals, winning fourth straight NCAA title

OU’s exciting senior class is leaving on a high note.

One of the Sooners’ juniors came up with the biggest play of the game, as Sidney Sanders hit a triple-double in the fourth and then OU hung on from there as the Sooners won their fourth straight Women’s College World Series title with an 8-4 win over Texas on Thursday at Devon Park.

The Sooners finished the season 59-7. Over the past four seasons, OU is 235-15.

“The thing about them is they’re resilient,” Sooners coach Patty Gasso said. “They have a lot of pride in that. It’s hard for me to understand that. I keep saying that was the hardest thing to manage. We lost a lot in the summer. The players through the portal have brought in some great players.” “.
