Oklahoma Makes History with First Four-Week Streak of Big 12 Softball Players of the Week
For the first time in Big 12 softball history, a team has produced the league’s Player of the Week for four consecutive weeks. Oklahoma did so over the past seven days with Haley Lee’s set of incredible performances.
The redshirt senior helped lead the Sooners to a sweep over conference rival Texas Tech while batting .571 (4-for-7) with three home runs, four RBI and four runs scored. Lee slugged 1.857 and also drew a pair of walks for a .667 OB%.
That included a two-homer, three-RBI outing in a 7-0 Saturday afternoon victory. It served as the grad transfer’s first multi-home run game as a Sooner and the seventh of her career, the other six of those coming at her former destination, Texas A&M. With that, Lee is tied for the team lead with 11 bombs and second on the squad with 36 RBI.
The weekly honor stands as Lee’s first of the Big 12 variety. And, as mentioned, it’s the fourth straight for the program in 2023, after Tiare Jennings, Grace Lyons and Jayda Coleman previously did so.
Oklahoma has lost only one game this season, in midst of a current 28-game winning streak. Their lone blemish came in a 4-3, non-conference loss to league rival Baylor back in the middle of February.
The Sooners (36-1) return to action when they head to Baton Rouge Tuesday for a midweek matchup with the 11th-ranked LSU Tigers. First pitch is set for 6 p.m. CT in a matchup of teams that could also meet again later on down the line.
