All four seniors from the University of Oklahoma softball team were selected Monday night in the 2013 National Pro Fastpitch College Draft.
The selections of Keilani Ricketts, Jessica Shults, Michelle Gascoigne and Brianna Turang were a school record, topping the three Sooners that were chosen in 2008. No school had as many draftees as OU on Monday night as Tennessee and Missouri were the only programs to have more than one player chosen.
All four players were chosen within the first nine selections, highlighted by pitcher Ricketts, who was drafted by the USSSA Florida Pride with the fourth overall pick. Ricketts’ selection is the second highest for a Sooner, bested only by DJ Mathis being chosen second overall in 2009 by the Akron Racers.
