Shults, Williams help Oklahoma reach championship series

Oklahoma will face Alabama in Women's College World Series

The last time Oklahoma junior catcher Jessica Shults represented her school in a championship game, she walked away without a title.

The Hart graduate was still in high school, and the Indians lost a 1-0 CIF championship game to Foothill League rival Valencia.

In that game alone, the Vikings had current USA Women's Softball National Team player Jordan Taylor, current Tennesse shortstop and second team All-American Madison Shipman and Arizona's Jessica Spigner.

Hart countered with a roster that included Shults and current Shipman teammate Melissa Brown.

While Shults couldn't seperate herself from the group then, though, she certainly has now.

Shults, current teammate and Canyon High graduate Brittany Williams, and the rest of the Sooners will take on Alabama today in game one of the NCAA Division I Women's College World Series best-of-three championship series at 5 p.m in Oklahoma City.

A first-team All American, Shults has had a lot to do with the sucess of Oklahoma -- which is on an NCAA-leading 11 game-winning streak entering its showdown with Alabama.

On the season, Shults has 19 home runs, and is 3-for-8 with two runs, two walks and two RBIs in three games in Oklahoma City.

Game two is scheduled for Tuesday at 5 p.m., and an if necessary third game would be played on Wednesday, also at 5 p.m.
