OU softball: Former players join Patty Gasso's staff

Oklahoma softball coach Patty Gasso announced five additions to her staff Wednesday afternoon. Together, they could form more than half of a softball All-Star squad.

Four-time Big 12 Pitcher of the Year and three-time All-American Paige Parker has joined the program as a volunteer assistant. It's the same role Keilani Ricketts occupied last season.

Kelsey Arnold, twice named Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year, has been named a graduate assistant.

Sydney Romero, Shay Knighten and Falepolima Aviu — two-time national champions and members of last season's national runner-up team — will work as student assistants in the 2019-20 school year.
