OU Softball nominated for two ESPY awards
Two weeks after winning a national championship, the University of Oklahoma softball team has been nominated for two ESPY awards by ESPN.
The 21st annual awards are set for July 17 at 8:00 p.m. and the Sooners are nominated for Best Team while Keilani Ricketts is up for Best Female College Athlete.
Fan voting is underway right now for Best Team and you can push the Sooners to win the award by voting here. But once the show starts, you gotta hit Twitter to give OU your vote. Just use the hashtag ESPYSBestTeam followed by Oklahoma Sooners. At the end of the show, ESPN will combine the votes from the website and Twitter to determine the winner.
OU has some stiff competition though: the U.S. Women's Gymnastics team, the San Francisco Giants, the University of Alabama football team, the Baltimore Ravens, the Chicago Blackhawks and the Miami Heat are all nominated.
In two decades of awards, two college programs have ever won Best Team. The most recent team to do it was the Oklahoma football team in 2001 after winning the national championship.
