The 2022 Women’s College World Series came to a close tonight with the Oklahoma Sooners taking down the Texas Longhorns to win the sixth national title in program history and their second-straight national championship.
Shortly after the conclusion of the game, the NCAA released its All-Tournament team, comprised of 12 players who shined brightly on the biggest stage in this fast-growing sport.
Unsurprisingly, the list is dominated by Big 12 players, as nine of the 12 selections hale from the best softball league in the country.
Here is a look at the list, courtesy of NCAA Softball’s Twitter page.
Oklahoma leads the way with five selections, followed by Texas and UCLA with three a piece, and Oklahoma State with one player.
Oklahoma also had the tournament’s Most Outstanding Player, and who else could it be but all-time slugger Jocelyn Alo.
Alo dominated tournament play, batting .666 with five home runs (tied Tiare Jennings for WCWS record) and scored 12 runs (WCWS record) in Oklahoma City over the last seven days.
The Sooners were a force to be reckoned with this season and went out and proved that they were the unquestioned queens of softball. However their conference opponents, Oklahoma State and Texas, also proved that the Big 12 plays some of, if not the best softball in the country.
