THIS IS EPISODE 299 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
Patty Gasso is the head softball coach of the Oklahoma Sooners. In a word, she’s a legend. Gasso joined the Sooners in 1995 and since then has led her clubs to 12 Women’s College World Series and four WCWS championships.
She was inducted into the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame this year and is a 12-time Big 12 Coach of the Year. Gasso was inducted into the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) Hall of Fame in 2012.
In 2019, the Sooners have won an NCAA-record 39 consecutive games, and entering the NCAA Softball Tournament they are the No. 1 seed after winning an incredible 49 of 51 games.
On this episode of the podcast, we talk with Gasso about the Sooners’ success achieved thus far in 2019, dealing with adversity in the midst of winning, her awesome testimony of coming to faith in the Lord on a softball field in Long Beach, Calif., being open about her faith as a coach, and why her husband is her spiritual leader.
Back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back.
