Former Hawaii resident and Oklahoma University (OU) softball player, Jocelyn Alo, was named the 2021 USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year Wednesday.

The announcement came Tuesday afternoon — with Alo’s teammate cheering her on.

The Hau’ula native has hit a home run in 28 of OU’s 52 games, “including two grand slams and two multi-home run games.”

“The Hauula, Hawaii, native has registered a hit in 47 of OU’s 52 games, including going on a program record 40-game consecutive hit streak dating from Feb. 21, 2020 to April 3, 2021. The streak was just three games shy of the all-time NCAA record,” Sooner Sports reported.

Alo has 84 career homers in total.
