The senior was a career-best 4-for-4 at the plate Sunday with six RBIs, including a three-run homer in the first inning that kicked off OU’s convincing victory.

In her last plate appearance, she drove in the game-ending run with an RBI single.

“Just seeing the ball good and being aggressive, and just taking my hacks,” Williams said of her performance.

After the game Sunday, OU honored Williams, Javen Henson and Destinee Martinez during a Senior Day ceremony, and also were presented with their Big 12 championship trophy.

The Sooners (45-10, 16-2 Big 12) captured the conference title outright with Saturday’s victory and now await a regional assignment. OSU (26-28, 5-13) is done for the season.

OU’s three seniors have been to the Women’s College World Series in each of their first three seasons on campus, winning the national title last year.

“They get to cherish the idea of being one team that has gone to three consecutive World Series, played in two national championship finals,” Gasso said of the group. “I know they wouldn’t want to settle for anything less than a return trip back.”
