Campbell’s Jocelyn Alo and Oklahoma earn No. 1 seed in 2021 NCAA softball tournament
HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - The NCAA announced their bracket for the 2021 Division I softball tournament on Sunday, with the Oklahoma Sooners taking the No. 1 seed in the tourney.
Leading the charge for the Sooners is Campbell graduate Jocelyn Alo, who helped the Red and White to a 45-2 regular season record and the top seeding set to face Morgan State in the Norman Regional on May 21st on ESPN 3 — Oklahoma the host school for the Norman Region.
The former saber has been a hot bat for the Sooners, just 14 home runs away from Laura Chamberlain’s 95 career homers — an NCAA record.
Alo also joins two other local players in the tourney looking to compete for a National Championship.
Former Campbell saber — Alo’s former teammate — Alesia Ranches is a sophomore utility player for the Iowa State Cyclones, set to go head-to-head with Northern Iowa in the Columbia Regional on May 21st on ESPN 3.
The Big Island’s Taylor Sullivan is a redshirt sophomore catcher for UCLA, who are set to face Long Beach State — the lone representative of the Big West Conference — in the Los Angeles Regional on May 21st on ESPN U.
