The Oklahoma Sooners posted an undefeated record against conference opponents this year. Unanimously claiming the No. 1 ranking this week, many of the accolades belong to two super-stars in the sport.
Anchoring the rotation of pitchers, newcomer Giselle Juarez has been absolutely dominant in the circle. On the other side of the equation, Sydney Romero defines consistency at the plate. Narrowing down the list, USA Softball released the names of the Collegiate Player of the Year finalists which included the aforementioned pair.
Appearing on the list side-by-side, Juarez and Romero are the only two candidates being considered from the same team. On May 22nd, USA Softball will once again cut the list — this time to three. Will one of these two players still stand when the decision is made? Only time will tell!
For now, the two continue to prepare for the post-season. Making the short journey to Oklahoma City, the Sooners collide with Texas Tech in the pool play of the Big 12 Tournament.
