Yesterday, U.S. Sens. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) and James Lankford (R-Okla.) made the following comments after the Senate passed Senate Resolution 291 congratulating the University of Oklahoma Sooners softball team on winning the 2021 National Collegiate Athletic Association Women's College World Series.
“I am glad to lead the Senate in congratulating the University of Oklahoma Sooners softball team on once again winning the 2021 National Collegiate Athletic Association Women's College World Series,” Inhofe said. “The dedication and perseverance of this team is a true testament to what it means to be an Oklahoman.”
“Oklahoma is proud to celebrate the distinguished women of OU Softball for their record-shattering season and their fifth national title,” said Lankford. “This bill recognizes the sacrifices each player, coach, and staff have made to chase their dreams. The Senate has formally recognized the OU Softball team’s 2021 championship season, their commitment to the game, and the legacy they leave to the thousands of young women who hope to fill their shoes someday. We look forward to watching the team next season and seeing a few familiar faces representing the US in Tokyo.”
