In the social media post, Bahl said "I have decided to return home and play the game I love, closer to the things that have made me who I am and that have always been more important to me than this game."

OU Softball Head Coach Patty Gasso released the following statement:

"Jordy shared with our staff on Friday that she has been feeling a strong need to be closer to home for quite some time and that she planned to enter the transfer portal. It was a very candid and emotional conversation in which we both communicated our love and appreciation for each other. We are grateful for her two years with our program and for everything she accomplished. She obviously was a huge part of our on-field success, but what I'II always appreciate most about Jordy is her approach and dedication to the game, as she's the ultimate competitor. We're understanding of her situation and certainly want her to be the happiest she can be. We are supportive of her and she will always be part of the OU Softball family."

According to OU Athletics statistics, Bahl compiled a 22-1 record as OU's pitcher this season while appearing in 38 total games, including the final innings of the championship against Florida State.

The sophomore from Papillion, Nebraska, ends her Sooner career as a back-to-back national champion with a 1.00 career ERA.
