The Oklahoma Sooners added Jocelyn Alo as a late addition to the 2017 class. However, Head Coach Patty Gasso likened her to Lauren Chamberlain before the true freshman ever set foot on the field in the crimson and cream. Living up to expectations, Alo hammered 28 homeruns through Super Regional play in the NCAA Tournament.
Looking to add a few more to the resume during the Women’s College World Series, the freshman currently leads the country in homerun department. At the plate, Alo certainly gained recognition which put her in the conversation for Freshman of the Year.
On Tuesday, the NFCA announced the winner of the title. At this point, one could easily guess the recipient of the award was none other than Oklahoma’s outfielder, Jocelyn Alo. Despite joining Paige Parker on the list of Freshman of the Year winners, the two have their eyes on a bigger prize.
It should come as no surprise that each member of the Sooners ball club enjoys the individual accolades but prefers to hoist a “team” trophy at the end of the post season. The Women’s College World Series starts on Thursday for Oklahoma as they face the Washington Huskies.
