NORMAN, Okla. -- The Oklahoma softball team joined fans in celebration of its second national championship Friday night at Marita Hynes Field.
A standing-room only crowd came out to see the Sooners one last time and were treated to a highlight video, fireworks and the unveiling of the 2013 National Champions banner on the left-centerfield wall.

"I'm here, just like of all you, honored to join in the celebration of one of the best -- if not the very best team -- in college softball history," Director of Athletics Joe Castiglione said in welcoming the crowd. "It truly is a team for the ages."
Congratulatory remarks were given by Castiglione and OU President David Boren, while head coach Patty Gasso and OU's four seniors addressed the crowd.
"We are still on cloud nine, and I hope you are too," Gasso said, "because it's a pretty good feeling being there."
