Happy Monday, Sooner Nation! I hope the weekend (and Mother’s day!) treated you as well as it did Sooner baseball and softball.

Patty Gasso’s softball squad won the Big 12 tournament (in addition to their regular season title) on Saturday in a Bedlam matchup. Surprisingly, it’s just the second time the Oklahoma Sooners have completed the title sweep. Congratulations to ace Paige Parker, who took home the tournament’s Most Outstanding Player award.

Pete Hughes’ baseball squad got in on some of the fun too, winning a huge series over fifth ranked TCU in thrilling fashion. Saturday’s game ended with a walk-off homer, and the Mother’s Day game ended in a walk-off single. Cardiac Sooners?

Without further ado:
