Brittany Williams was on Oklahoma coach Patty Gasso's MVP list.

 The Sooners' typical No. 6 hitter was bumped to the No. 5 hole on Sunday for Oklahoma's 14-1 win against Arkansas.

 Williams stayed patient in her first two at-bats, drawing a walk in the first and third innings. In her third at-bat, she knocked a double that started a chain of hits. Williams scored when Jessica Shults knocked an RBI double in the next at-bat.

 During Oklahoma's three games in the Norman Regional, Williams had two singles, three doubles and a solo home run.

 “Brittany is very confident right now,” Gasso said. “She was just on fire. She's seeing the ball well. She drew a couple of walks today that really helped.

 “It's nice because last year at this time, she was not in a good place. To see her really shine and swing the way she is capable of is great for this team.”

 

SOONERS MOVE ON TO SUPER REGIONAL 

With its third victory of the weekend, Oklahoma won the regional and moves on to the Super Regional. 

With the No. 1 overall seed, the Sooners should host the Super Regional in Norman. 

Oklahoma pitcher Michelle Gascoigne said they are going to treat the Super Regional the same way they treated the regional.

“Just like we came into this weekend preparing for whatever team comes our way and comes to us,” Gascoigne said. “We're still on the same page. We're keeping everything one game at a time and one inning at a time. We don't really want to change anything.”
