WCWS championship series: Oklahoma sweeps FSU to complete three-peat (2024)

The Oklahoma softball dynasty reigns again, as the Sooners won the Women's College World Series for the third season in a row.

Cydney Sanders and Grace Lyons hit back-to-back home runs in the fifth inning, and Alex Storako and Jordy Bahl shut down Florida State's offense en route to a 3-1 win Thursday at USA Softball Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City.

Oklahoma became only the second team in Division I history to three-peat as WCWS champions (UCLA, 1988-90), but that is just the tip of the iceberg for how dominant the Sooners have been.

They finished the 2023 season 61-1 with 53 wins in a row (and counting), the longest streak in Division I history. Oklahoma also became the first school to lead the country in scoring, ERA and fielding percentage in the same season.

How did we get here? Here are the scores from all 132 NCAA tournament games:
