The University of Oklahoma softball team has had many celebrations after winning the NCAA championship last season, but on Monday the Sooners may have saved the best one for last.
Sitting in the South Lawn of the White House, the Sooners were one of many national championship teams that were honored by President Barack Obama. The President even went on to praise womens teams for paving the way for his own daughters and other young women.
Benicia High graduate and former Sooners star left-handed pitcher Michelle Gascoigne took part of the festivities and toured the White House. The 2013 ERA leader for Division I even got to shake Obamas hand.
