Oklahoma won its opening tournament game with 11 hits and four home runs, and the Sooners intend to defend their Women’s College World Series crown in Oklahoma City next month. The Sooners, who entered the 2021 tournament as the top seed, won their sixth national championship by beating the Florida State Seminoles, 5-1.
In pursuit of their first national title, the Oklahoma State Cowgirls opened the Stillwater regional with a 12-0 run-rule victory over the Fordham Rams. According to the team’s website, the five-inning shutout was Oklahoma State’s 16th of the season, and the 12-run margin was the second-largest in NCAA tournament play. This weekend, 64 teams are battling for 16 berths in the super regionals. Next month, just half of these teams will qualify for the Women’s College World Series.
