OU Softball: Oklahoma OF Hannah Coor Out for the Season

The Sooners' reserve outfielder and baserunning specialist has what coach Patty Gasso called a back issue and will take a medical redshirt this season.

Hannah Coor, a sophomore outfielder on the Oklahoma softball team, is out for the season.

Head coach Patty Gasso confirmed the injury as a back issue on Wednesday after practice during a press conference at Marita Hynes Fields. Coor indicated on her Instagram account earlier in the week that she would be back “next year.”

“Not expecting her to be back,” Gasso said. “She could potentially toward the end of the season, but I’d rather save that year.”

Coor was a freshman reserve on the Sooners’ 2022 national championship team who played in 40 games — mostly as a pinch-runner. She had just two at-bats (no hits) but scored 19 runs. She also drew four walks and was 6-of-8 on stolen bases.

Coor scored three runs in the College World Series, stole a base in the Super Regional finale against UCF and scored runs in NCAA Regional games against Texas A&M and Prairie View. She also stole a base during the Sooners’ Bedlam win over Oklahoma State.

Coor, from Yorba Linda, CA, was 0-for-1 in four games played this season, with her only at-bat coming against San Jose State. She also was a late sub against Duke, Liberty and Washington.

Gasso said Coor will get surgery soon and take a medical redshirt this season.

“She’s been in constant pain, and it’s hard to watch an athlete in that space,” Gasso said. “ … This has been going on a long time.”
