A week of shooting Women’s College World Series softball all led up to the championship game between OU and Alabama.

My favorite part about shooting sports is the whirlpool of emotions happening all around me.

Wednesday’s game was the the one the brought out the most powerful moments after OU lost to Alabama 5-4.   Staff photographer Nate Billings and I tried our best to capture those moments.
