OU players sweep softball awards

NORMAN – Just like they did to open the 2013 season, sophomore Lauren Chamberlain and senior Keilani Ricketts have once again swept the Big 12 Player and Pitcher of the Week awards, the conference announced on Tuesday.

For Chamberlain, it’s the fifth time she has been named Big 12 Player of the Week in her career, including the second time this season. Ricketts has been named Big 12 Pitcher of the Week 14 times as a Sooner, with three coming in 2013.

Chamberlain was red-hot during the Sooners’ 5-0 weekend at the Judi Garman Classic in Fullerton, Calif. Starting all five games at first base, she hit .556 with six runs scored, three home runs and six runs batted in. She recorded 14 total bases for a 1.556 slugging percentage, while nine walks helped boost her on-base percentage to .778. Chamberlain was also 1-1 in stolen bases and did not strike out over the weekend.

In the circle, Ricketts did not allow a single run as she threw 17.0 shutout innings in three complete-game starts. She struck out 27, walked three and allowed only six hits to post an opponents' batting average of .103.
