Former Oklahoma softball stars Keilani Ricketts and Shelby Pendley have been named to the 2019 women’s national team.
Ricketts was a four-time All-American at pitcher for the Sooners from 2010 to 2013, while Pendley was a three-time All-American infielder from 2011 to 2013, both helping the Sooners to a national championship in 2013.
The team is made up of 18 players who will compete in various tournaments, then have the roster trimmed to 15 for the Pan-American Games.
The team will likely have an advantage of making the Olympic team for the 2020 Games in Tokyo, Japan.
Ricketts and Pendley have both had USA Softball experience.
