Oklahoma’s redshirt senior Jocelyn Alo had herself quite the week, which is something that’s been said numerous times over the last couple of years.
Her week earned her the honor of being named the Louisville Slugger/NFCA Division I Player of the Week. It marks the second time in Alo’s career to be named NFCA National Player of the Week, the first coming on March 27, 2018.
Alo has hit five bombs in the last five games, including her 95th-career home run against Texas State on Sunday, tying former Sooner great Lauren Chamberlain as the NCAA Career Home Run Leader. On top of that, she batted .600 on the weekend with 11 RBI and seven extra-base hits that helped lead the Sooners to five wins by way of run-rule.
The reigning USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year has picked up right she left off, tallying up seven home runs and 18 RBI’s through 10 contests, batting with an average of .500. If she continues on her current trend, she will set the career home run record sometime this upcoming weekend and then build on the record for the remainder of the 2022 season.
The Sooners’ next five games this weekend come against Cal State-Fullerton, Long Beach State, No. 10 Arizona, No. 17 Tennessee, and Utah. All games will be part of the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic in Palm Springs, California, on February 25-27.
