If you are chosen to any of the Cal-Hi Sports all-state teams, you should consider yourself an “all-state” player. Whether it’s first team overall, second team overall, third team, underclass, medium schools or small schools, to be on any of these teams should be considered an honor.

California remains, after all, the greatest state in the nation (by far) in the sport and is still the worldwide leader. There also are more than 1,000 schools in the state.

With that said, congratulations to the following 2013 Cal-Hi Sports all-state softball second team members as well as third team:
