As we quickly approach the end of the regular season, a few freshman have made a name for themselves. Looking to honor one of these student athletes, Schutt has announced the twenty-five finalists for the NFCA Division I National Freshman of the Year. Included in the group is none other than the Oklahoma Sooners’ utility player, Jocelyn Alo.
Over the course of the season, Alo proved worthy of the hype leading into her freshman year. Touted as a powerful hitter, the freshman has drawn comparison to former Sooners like Lauren Chamberlain. Through the first 30 games of the campaign, Alo blasted 16 home runs. The number not only leads the program but also ranks second in the nation. If that number were put into home runs per game, the freshman would lead the country at .53 each outing.
Currently on a road trip through the Pacific Northwest, Alo continues to add to her resume. The winner will be presented the award before the first pitch of the Women’s College World Series.
