NORMAN — Oklahoma head softball coach Patty Gasso announced Tuesday the addition of infielder Taylon Snow to the program for the upcoming 2020 season.
Snow, who will be a junior next year, comes to Oklahoma after spending the first two seasons of her career at Auburn.
“We are beyond thrilled to be adding Taylon Snow to the Sooner family," Gasso said. "Our fans will enjoy her athleticism and versatility. Her experience and leadership will be a great addition to the 2020 roster."
Snow started 52 games at shortstop for the Tigers in 2019, ranking third on the team with a .324 batting average. She finished the season with one home run and 27 RBIs while leading Auburn with 17 multi-hit games. Snow posted a .975 fielding percentage for the Tigers in 2019 and helped them turn 30 double plays, the most by any team in the SEC.
The Chino Hills, Calif., native tallied her 100th career hit on April 17 against Alabama State and slashed .324/.387/.359 during her sophomore season.
Snow was an All-SEC Freshman Team selection in 2018 after earning 47 starts at shortstop. Her .325 batting clip was good for second on the team as she tallied 49 hits, scored 26 runs and led the Tigers with three triples and seven doubles. She completed her freshman season with a .411 slugging clip and a .377 on-base percentage.
Snow will join a Sooners squad that is coming off its fourth straight Women's College World Series appearance and eighth consecutive Big 12 regular season title in 2019. OU will announce its fall schedule at a later date.
