Jordy Bahl Announces She is Leaving OU Softball Program

Oklahoma pitcher Jordy Bahl announced on Monday that she leave the Sooners softball program and returning to Nebraska.

The Sooners are now left with a huge void in the circle, as Bahl was the unquestioned ace in Norman and the best pitcher in all of softball.

Over her two seasons with the Sooners, Bahl has maintained a 1.00 ERA over 288.2 IP with 397 strikeouts and just 41 earned runs. As a starter, Bahl was 44-2 in her career at Oklahoma, giving her one of the best records in the country in that stretch.


Bahl’s statement says she will “return home” to continue her softball career, implying she will still continue playing the sport that has made her a household name. Bahl is in the transfer portal, according to reports.

In the 2023 Women’s College World Series, Bahl showed the country just how special she is. Bahl was a perfect 4-0 in the Women’s College World Series, tossing 24.2 scoreless innings with 33 Ks, and also scored two massive runs as a pinch runner.

After the Sooners’ 3-1 victory to win the Women’s College World Series last Thursday, head coach Patty Gasso had high praise for her sophomore ace.


“She’s always wished that she could have this moment and she’s dreamed of it,” Gasso said. “I think it looked just like this, or even bigger than she expected. I can’t tell you how proud I am of her and all the expectations that lay on her all the time.”

“She is just one of the best pitchers I’ve ever seen.”

Oklahoma is set to return Nicole May and Kierston Deal in the circle and could definitely be a major player in the transfer portal to add depth to the now shorthanded pitching staff.
