It was the decade that Patty Gasso became known far and wide in the softball world as "Four-Time Natty Patty." It was also the decade when "Sooner Magic" became an undeniable part of the postseason in what seemed like every year of the 2010s.

From Lauren Chamberlain's booming home runs, to Keilani Ricketts' filthy "crop duster," to Shay Knighten's all-time great heroics and just about a thousand other memorable moments in-between, Oklahoma put together a legendary decade and captured three national championships in the process.

That's why the Sooners are Softball America's top team of the 2010 decade.

Throughout the decade, Oklahoma lost less than 100 games and won well over 500. The Sooners produced 32 All-Americans, advanced to the Women's College World Series (WCWS) eight times, finished as the NCAA runners-up twice and made 10 appearances in the NCAA Super Regionals.

No team in Division I softball captured more national titles than Oklahoma during the 2010 decade.
