Her 122 career home runs set the all-time record and are 27 more than OU legend Lauren Chamberlain’s 95. In helping Oklahoma to their sixth national championship, Alo hit .515 on the season with 34 home runs, 84 RBIs, walked 54 times, had a slugging percentage of 1.212, and an on-base percentage of .646.
According to SoonerSports.com, Alo is the first woman to hit 30 home runs and hit over .500 in a single season. Her 34 home runs in 2022 marked the third time she hit more than 30 home runs in a season, also the only time that’s ever occurred in college softball.
Alo now plays for the Smash It Vipers of the Women’s Professional Fastpitch league after being selected No. 1 overall in the May draft.
