Already 37-1, Oklahoma softball can still find another gear

Just six games remain until the Oklahoma Sooners head to Oklahoma City for the Big 12 Tournament.

To date, OU is a dominant 37-1, only stubbing their toe in the front end of a double-header in Georgia just two days after capping off an emotional sweep of Texas.

Patty Gasso’s No. 1-ranked Sooners on are pace to rewrite almost every offensive record to date by the time a champion is crowned this June in OKC, but somehow they still may have another level they’ve yet to achieve.

Since dropping the first game to Georgia, Oklahoma has roared back, outscoring the Bulldogs in the second game and Texas Tech this past weekend by a combined score of 52-3 over the four-game span.

“They’re good at answering and responding, and they show that day-in and day-out,” Gasso said after Sunday’s win over the Red Raiders. “They’ve bounced back well. It’s that time of the season when you start to feel like legs are a little bit heavy, so we’re really working hard to get them rested and get things working for them.
