All-State Softball: 2nd & 3rd Teams

Two of the top players on this year's all-state overall second team are pitcher Katya Duvall of Los Alamitos and infielder Lindsay Rood from Monte Vista of Danville. Duvall, the Pitcher of the Year in the Sunset League, will play next at Ohio State. Rood, one of the top players the last two seasons in the East Bay Athletic League, is headed to Cal.

The 33rd annual Cal-Hi Sports all-state teams package for softball also includes 30 players named second team overall plus 50 more who are third team. The third team, however, is only for seniors and only for large schools.

Note: We’ll have an inside look at this year’s all-state softball teams after all of the teams are chosen, including names of players we really wanted to pick but couldn’t. That post plus a brand new archive of all-state first team picks back to 1992 (which also has been added to the site today) is for Gold Club members only. To join our team today, CLICK HERE.

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 all-state honor.

There are 1,200 high schools in California and just about any place you go the competition in softball is unbelievable. Whether you are counting girls who are playing in the Women’s College World Series – even this year with Florida vs. Michigan in the final there were more California players than from any other state – or whether you are looking at leaders of USA national teams, there still is nowhere in the world really that can match California softball.

We try to research and collect info from everywhere we can and we give people several weeks to send in nominations. Still, it’s not a perfect system so of course it’s possible to miss on a deserving player.

With that said, congratulations to the following 2015 Cal-Hi Sports all-state softball second team members as well as third team:
