Oklahoma softball: Sooners almost sweep All-Big 12 awards for 2018 season”

The Top 3 Finalists will be announced May 23, while the victor of the 2018 USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year award will be revealed on May 29 prior to the start of the NCAA WCWS in Oklahoma City. Patty Gasso was unanimously named Big 12 Coach of the Year. Freshman infielder Kelsey Arnold won Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year The only award the Sooners didn't get was Player of the Year, which went to Oklahoma State's Vanessa Shippy. She's the only pitcher in the conference to finish with a sub-1.00 ERA in Big 12 games this season.

She can realistically add four more career records to her resume in postseason play, as she needs just one double to tie the OSU and Big 12 records.

Twice this season Shippy has been named national player of the week and on three occasions she has earned Big 12 Player of the Week honors. Her.460 batting average is also just one point shy of tying for the lead among Big 12 competitors, and all four of those marks place her among the top 10 competitors nationally.

The Tulsa native helped OU post a conference-best.989 team fielding percentage and was ideal on all 40 fielding opportunities this season.

Shippy finished the regular season as the Big 12's leader in on-base percentage (.613), runs scored (65) and walks (54).

Gasso earned Coach of the Year honors for the seventh consecutive season. She's won the award 11 times overall. She is one of 25 finalists still in contention for the 2018 USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year and last week she was named to the Academic All-Big 12 First Team for the third time in her career.

Shippy was also named to the All-Big 12 First Team, and second baseman Madi Sue Montgomery, pitcher Samantha Clakley and right fielder Taylor Lynch made the second team.
