Chamberlain's 90th ties NCAA Home run record

news service reports

NORMAN, Okla. – Oklahoma senior Lauren Chamberlain hit her 90th home run Saturday to tie the NCAA career softball record set by former UCLA star Stacey Nuveman in 2002.

Chamberlain’s record-tying home run to center field started a seven-run fourth inning in the Sooners’ 11-3, five-inning victory over Baylor.

“I just felt like a load had been lifted off my shoulders,” Chamberlain, a former El Toro High star, said after the game. “But just total excitement too because, I mean, we needed a few extra runs in that game anyway. I think just as soon as I hit it, I knew it was out, and I was like, ‘Man, OK, I can chill now. I can relax.’”

She finished the day 2 for 3 with three RBI.

Chamberlain reached the mark in 206 games and 571 at-bats. Nuveman finished her career with 264 games and 691 at-bats.

The 2010 Register player of the year recently had her county high school home run record of 46 eclipsed by Mission Viejo senior Alyssa Palomino, who has 53 and is tied with three others for the state record.
