No. 2 Oklahoma wants to become a fan favorite

Sooners set to face No. 5 UCLA in top-5 battle

(Continued)

NORMAN —

The NCAA seems think the Sooners have the ability to draw large numbers. Lloyd Noble Center was chosen as one of six sites to host an NCAA Championships regional tournament April 6. Olson says one day the Sooners will start packing the fans in at home meets to where they match their SEC rivals because they already have the talent to match them. Now they just need the fans to take notice.

“My freshman year when I came in we were pulling in only a 1,000 fans,” Olson said. “It has grown so much already. Our first home meet this year, I walked in and felt it. It gave me goose bumps because of how much it has changed in the last four years. I can’t wait to see how much it will change and how much support we will get in the next four years.”
