The best pitching staff in the nation may be losing Hope Trautwein, but they’ll be gaining yet another star.
Former Michigan Wolverines ace pitcher Alex Storako will be transferring to the University of Oklahoma for her Master’s Degree and final year of NCAA eligibility.
The righty went 25-8 with a 1.71 ERA in 2022. She also struck out 300 batters in 200.l innings of work.
She doesn’t have the numbers of Hope Trautwein, but in her defense, not many pitchers do. She will fit right in with Nicole May and Jordy Bahl.
While at Michigan, she was a unanimous Big Ten Pitcher of the Year and second team All-American in 2021.
Storako announced her transfer on her twitter account on Monday afternoon. Needless to say, the crimson and cream suits her very well.
Excited to announce that I will be pursuing my Master’s degree and playing softball at the University of Oklahoma❤️

The OU rotation is suddenly looking very crowded with the additions of Storako and no.1 recruit Kierston Deal.
OU pitching’s dominance is a big reason why they just finished the greatest season in college softball history. While the bats were excellent, the pitching did need to bail them out a few times during the season.
Jordy Bahl’s health will also be a massive boost for the rotation come next season.
Too bad Oklahoma fans will have to wait until next year to see Storako pitch at Marita Hynes field.
