SOONERS BEAT ALL-STARS
Georgia Casey's two-run homer and Keilani Ricketts' RBI single rallied Oklahoma to a 5-3 victory over the National Pro Fastpitch All-Stars in an exhibition softball game Thursday night at Marita Hynes Field in Norman. Ricketts threw 51/3 innings, striking out three and allowing two unearned runs. The Sooners, who finished runner-up at the Women's College World Series last spring in Oklahoma City, open the regular season in February.
