Former El Toro High star Lauren Chamberlain was the most prolific home run hitter in county history, and she has picked up right where she left off in college at Oklahoma where she led the Big 12 Conference with 27 home runs, 71 RBIs, 62 runs and a .869 slugging percentage.
Chamberlain, the Register’s, 2010 and 1011 Softball Player of the Year, was so feared as a senior at El Toro that she was walked 52 times and hit by pitches 15 times, but she still had 12 home runs and 20 extra-base hits in only 44 official at bats. She hit a county-record 17 homers in 2010 and she finished her career with a county-record 46 homers.
Chamberlain helped lead the No. 4 Sooners to the Women’s College World Series in her freshman season. Oklahoma opens against South Florida on Thursday at 10 a.m. on ESPN2 at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City. Chamberlain will blog about her experience at the WCWS this week for OCVarsity.com.
Hey guys! It is Wednesday, May 30, and I am currently at the hotel, right now.
We just got back from the first part of our day that was absolutely FILLED with interviews, photo shoots, Nike gear and more. We went to the Hall of Fame stadium around 8 a.m. and were immediately sent in to do video shoots, so that people could get a better sense of who we are.
