Oklahoma softball team joined fans in celebration of its second national championship Friday night at Marita Hynes Field.
A standing-room only crowd came out to see the Sooners one last time and
were treated to a highlight video, fireworks and the unveiling of the
2013 National Champions banner on the left-centerfield wall.
"I'm here, just like of all you, honored to join in the celebration of
one of the best -- if not the very best team -- in college softball
history," Director of Athletics Joe Castiglione said in welcoming the
crowd. "It truly is a team for the ages."
Congratulatory remarks were given by Castiglione and OU President David
Boren, while head coach Patty Gasso and OU's four seniors addressed the
"We are still on cloud nine, and I hope you are too," Gasso said, "because it's a pretty good feeling being there."

The Sooners captured their second Women's College World Series
title on Tuesday night with a 4-0 victory over Tennessee at ASA Hall of
Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City, Okla.
Senior Michelle Gascoigne
threw a complete game shutout with just three hits allowed and 12
strikeouts, while fellow senior and two-time USA Softball Collegiate
Player of the Year Keilani Ricketts drove in all four runs, including a
three-run home run in the third inning.
