HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The party is on for the Oklahoma softball team!

The No. 1 ranked Sooners took down the Texas Longhorns, 10-5, to claim back-to-back National Championships.

After a slow start early on, OU took control with a combined eight runs in the fifth and sixth inning -- UT not able to close the gap.

Hawaii’s own Jocelyn Alo was quiet at the plate tonight, but did receive a proper ‘Aloha’ in the final inning, getting put on defense, snagging two of the final three outs for OU.

The Hauula native finishes a historic career with an NCAA best of 122 home runs — 34 from this season alone.

For the Sooners, this is their sixth National title in program history.
