Sooners win 5th softball national championship
OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. (AP) - Giselle Juarez threw her second consecutive complete game and Oklahoma won its fifth national championship, beating Florida State 5-1 in the Women’s College World Series.
The Sooners had lacked a dominant pitcher heading into the series but Juarez answered the call, allowing one run on two hits in the decisive Game 3.
Oklahoma won Game 2 6-2 behind Juarez, who went 5-0 at the World Series and was named Most Outstanding Player. She allowed four runs in 31 1/3 innings.
The top-seeded Sooners dropped a stunner to James Madison in the series’ opening game, but recovered to beat the Dukes and then got past Florida State after dropping Game 1.
