The Bruins clinched their 13th National Championship and the 118th NCAA title in UCLA Athletics history following a 5-4 victory over Oklahoma on Tuesday, as UCLA swept the best-of-three WCWS Championship Series. The Bruins routed the Sooners, 16-3, on Monday, and won in walk-off fashion on an RBI single by sophomore Kinsley Washington that scored junior Jacqui Prober in the bottom of the seventh on Tuesday. Redshirt junior Rachel Garcia was named the Most Outstanding Player of the Women’s College World Series and was joined on the All-Tournament Team by Washington, junior Bubba Nickles and redshirt sophomore Aaliyah Jordan.
