Matching a career high eight game hitting streak, Clifton’s batting average soared to .714 throughout the duration of the week. Finding a rhythm at the plate, the senior recorded two triples along the way. Accounting for six runs and five RBIs, Clifton remains a major contributor on both sides of the ball.
Without any weaknesses in the batting order, the Oklahoma Sooners remain focused on winning a national championship once again. Approaching the year one game at a time, the program prepares for a road series with the Kansas Jayhawks. Conference play continues to throw the best competition at Patty Gasso but her players simply respond positively at each turn.
