Jocelyn Alo, who holds the record for the most home runs in NCAA Division I history and has won two consecutive Women’s College World Series titles with the University of Oklahoma will participate in the upcoming AU Pro Softball AUX event in Wichita, Kansas as she is now apart of the women’s softball league.

Jocelyn Alo left the Sooner Softball program in 2022 to pursue her professional softball career. 

Jocelyn Alo's Oklahoma Softball History

The Hauula, Hawaii, native, earned the USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year title in her last two seasons at Oklahoma, leading the Sooners to consecutive NCAA championships. She holds NCAA records for career home runs (122), total bases (761), and a slugging percentage of .987. Her 323 career RBIs rank second in NCAA history. 

Alo also played for the Oklahoma City Spark and led the nation in home runs three times. She set Oklahoma and Big 12 single-season records with 34 home runs in each of her final two years. A four-time NFCA All-America selection, she was the Most Outstanding Player at the 2022 NCAA Women’s College World Series, hitting .667 with 12 hits, including five home runs, and 13 RBIs.

β€œAloha! I am super excited to be playing AUX and to be representing my family, home state of Hawaii, and the University of Oklahoma,” said Alo according to the AUX press release. β€œTo be able to collaborate with AU as an OKC Spark player is such an honor that I will remember for the rest of my playing career. 

"This is a huge win for professional softball and this is so much bigger than myself, but represents the women I am playing alongside as well in both leagues. I am looking forward to my arrival in Wichita and am ready to hit the ground running. GO BOOMERBABY!”
