OU releases 2013 women's soccer schedule


NORMAN — "With the competitive nature of the Big 12, the success of the top teams in the NCAA tournament and the recruiting that has taken place across the board, we are set up for a great year of soccer," Potter said.

Big 12 play will open for the Sooners in Waco, Texas on Sept. 27 against Baylor. OU will then return to Norman to open a three-game home stand on Oct. 4 against Oklahoma State. Conference rivals Texas Tech (Oct. 11), Iowa State (Oct. 13) and West Virginia (Oct. 25) will also make the journey to Norman for Big 12 action.

The Sooners will face a conference road schedule that includes games at TCU (Oct. 18), Texas (Oct. 20) and Kansas (Nov. 1).

The Big 12 Championship will take place on Nov. 6-10 in Kansas City, Mo. The conference's top eight teams will compete in a single-eliminiation tournament as they vie for a Big 12 title and an automatic bid to the 2013 NCAA Tournament.

NCAA Championship action is set to open on Nov. 15 at campus sites around the country. The tournament will conclude on Dec. 8 with the Women's College Cup in Cary, N.C.

Oklahoma will return seven starters from the 2012 squad this season. The Sooners finished their first year under Head Coach Matt Potter with a 7-9-4 record and the program's third consecutive Big 12 Championship appearance.

    When Claremore’s Matt Whatley takes his place behind the plate tonight in the Oklahoma Coaches Association Large School East-West All-State baseball game, the former Zebra catcher will be right at home.
    Whatley, who started four years as the catcher for the Zebras, finds his final high school baseball game taking place in his future college ballpark.
    Last November, Whatley and his long-time friend, Bryce Howe, signed NCAA Division I baseball scholarships to play for the Oral Roberts University Golden Eagles.
    Tonight, those dreams come true for Whatley and Jenks outfielder Cadon Owens, who will be joining his former Bearcats teammate on the East squad. Also, Verdigris' Ryan Skalnik will start at third base for the Large East All-State team.
