Keilani Ricketts Caps Off Her OU Career In Style

@SoonerSoftball

In a fitting end to her illustrious career, Oklahoma's Keilani Ricketts capped things off in style Monday evening as she was named the winner of the 2013 Honda Cup. The award is presented annually to the nation's top female collegiate athlete.

"I would like to thank Honda for sponsoring and for the CWSA to appreciate us as collegiate athletes," Ricketts said. "We really do feel appreciated. I've had a blast so far. Congratulations to all of the recipients because all of them have had amazing seasons. It's awesome to be able to experience this with them.

"My teammates helped me stay determined. Winning the Honda Cup has been great to represent my school and my state. I wouldn't be here without the people of Oklahoma. They have motivated me to be prideful to use softball to represent them well." - SoonerSports.com

Ricketts became the first Oklahoma student-athlete in the history of the award to win as well as just the third softball player to ever receive the honor. She beat out other prominent female athletes from their respective sports including Elena Delle Donne (basketball).

Congratulations to the now former (sigh) OU ace on the well deserved honor!
