Ahead of Oklahoma taking on Texas in Game 2 of the Women’s College World Series finals, we take a look at Tiare Jennings parents and their ethnicity.

The finals of the Women’s College World Series (WCWS) is currently taking place with the Oklahoma Sooners romping to a 16-1 win over the Texas Longhorns in Game 1.

The Sooners set a WCWS record with six home runs to move within one win away from their second consecutive title and sixth overall. It is a best-of-three series with Game 2 taking place tonight (Thursday 9 June).

Jennings’ softball career so far

Oklahoma’s offense was firing on all cylinders in Game 1 of the WCWS. Oklahoma star Jocelyn Alo rightly got the plaudits, but Tiare Jennings also hit two home runs and drove in five runs.

As a freshman in 2021, Jennings finished the season with 27 home runs and led the nation with 92 RBI – which broke the NCAA Division freshman single-season RBI record. She was named first-team All Big 12, Big 12 all-freshman team, Big 12 Freshman of the Year, NFCA National Freshman of the Year and Softball America Freshman of the Year.

During her sophomore year in 2022, she batted .385 with 24 home runs, 72 RBIs, and a .882 slugging percentage. Her 24 home runs ranked fourth in the nation, while her 72 RBIs tied for third in the NCAA, and she was named a unanimous first-team All-American.
