Patty Gasso, OU Head Coach, Achieves Milestone with Sweeping Victory Over Texas Tech

Tiare Jennings continued her impressive performance. She faced an inside pitch and sent it flying over the centerfield wall. This marked her third home run of the weekend, contributing to the Sooners’ commanding lead in the seventh inning. Earlier in the series opener against Texas Tech, she had already hit two home runs. Her powerful swing added three more runs to the Sooners’ tally, bringing her total to 12 runs for the series.

Jennings was not the only one from the Sooners who stood out during the series. In a remarkable game on Sunday afternoon in Lubbock, Texas, the Sooners clinched an 11-1 victory over Texas Tech. This win was a milestone for OU head coach Patty Gasso, who became the first Big 12 coach in any sport to achieve 400 conference wins. Gasso’s record improved to 400-87 (.821) in Big 12 play following Sunday’s game.

The Sooners’ head coach was just three wins shy of this record at the start of the series on Friday. The team then went on to sweep the Red Raiders, outscoring them 40-3 across the series. Oklahoma dominated Texas Tech 14-0 in Game 1 and 15-2 in Game 2. Now, the top-ranked Sooners (27-1, 6-0 Big 12) are on a nine-game winning streak.

In another standout performance, Nicole May (9-0) pitched six innings on Sunday, allowing only seven hits—all singles—and striking out six. Karlie Keeney came in to pitch a scoreless seventh inning, sealing the game. Alyssa Brito had an exceptional day, hitting two home runs as part of a three-hit day, and Jennings capped off the series with a three-run home run, totaling 12 RBIs for the weekend. Avery Hodge and Rylie Boone also made significant contributions with multi-hit efforts.

The Sooners are set to return to Love’s Field for a game against Texas-Arlington at 6 p.m. on Wednesday. The game is scheduled for a 6 p.m. CT start and will be broadcast on ESPN+ as well as 1560 AM/103.3 FM The Franchise 2. Following this, the Sooners will host Baylor for a three-game series next weekend, including a Friday game at Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City.
