The University of Oklahoma in 1995, won its third Big 12 Conference championship in five years at Oklahoma, however, financial difficulties nearly ended her tenure following the 1999 season.
Patty noted: Money was tight, and my husband, Jim, had actually gone back to California because it was hard to find a job here at the time. So here I was raising our two children and trying to coach a Division-I softball program, which was very demanding of my time and energy. However, she remained in Oklahoma for the 2000 season despite her husband’s return to California. The 2000 University of Oklahoma team then compiled a record of 66-8 and defeated UCLA three games to one in the Women’s College World Series to win the Sooners’ first national softball championship. Because of the national championship in 2000, the University of Oklahoma gave Patty “a significant salary hike” and thus her husband was able to return to Oklahoma.
In the course of the next 12 years, Patty built the Sooners into a national softball power winning over 40 games every year. The 2001 team finished with a 50-9 record while the 2007 team finished 55-8.
