Talk about a year already flying by; the Oklahoma Sooners softball team, who just had their media day will open the season on February 8th…. which is next weekend!
Head coach Patti Gasso on getting ready for the 2013 season:
It’s very exciting because they’re hungry, and it was pretty easy to watch them go through the fall, although there was quite a bit of teaching because I have seven freshmen, all from Oklahoma. They’re trying to learn the system, so there was a lot of teaching going on, but my upperclassmen helped with that because they know freshmen are very important to the success of this program. But they’re hungry and they went after it hard this fall. We still feel like we have some things to take care of before we hit the road, but they are just very anxious about getting started again.
The Sooners will kick off the season at the Kajikawa Classic in Phoenix, Arizona. They take on Stanford, then Oregon State on Day 1. Day 2 consists of Oregon then New Mexico. The final day they will face Northwestern.
