Jocelyn Alo set the Oklahoma softball single-season homer record Saturday, diving deep in the 6th inning of a 8-0 success over Georgia in the Women’s College World Series.
Alo presently has 31 homers this season, breaking the imprint she came to in 2018 when she tied Lauren Chamberlain (2012, 2013). The two-run grand slam Saturday ended up being the solitary hit of the day for Alo, who was named softball’s player of the year sooner in the week.
After a baffling misfortune to James Madison in the WCWS opener on Thursday, when No. 1 seed Oklahoma was held to a season-low three runs, the Sooners got back to their hostile structure against the Bulldogs to fight off disposal. Alo was one of three players to hit homers in the game.
Oklahoma proceeded to beat the second-cultivated and reigning champ UCLA Bruins late Saturday night by a score of 10-3. The Sooners next take on JMU in a rematch Sunday.
