The incredible legend of Oklahoma Softball’s Jocelyn Alo continues to grow after an incredible season that helped the Oklahoma Sooners win their second consecutive national championship.

In a season where she hit .511, with 34 home runs and 75 RBIs, Alo was named the USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year for the second time and won the ESPY for Best Collegiate Athlete, Women’s Sports.

Off on her professional career with the Smash It Vipers and getting set to participate in the Japan Series with the USWNT, Alo was awarded Big 12’s Female Athlete of the Year award for 2021-2022.

Alo is the third Sooner in a row to take home the award, with gymnasts Anastasia Webb and Maggie Nichols taking home the trophy in the two seasons before Alo.

Oklahoma has dominated the award as 15 Oklahoma Sooners have been awarded Big 12 Athlete of the Year in the 26-year history of the conference. Previous winners also include Jalen Hurts, Kyler Murray, Buddy Hield, and Lauren Chamberlain, and Keilani Ricketts.

In Alo’s final season at OU, she set the all-time NCAA home run record with 122 home runs and became the most feared hitter in college softball. She leaves a legacy on the sport and in Norman as one of the greatest athletes Oklahoma has ever had.
