All-State Softball: 2nd & 3rd Teams

Two of those on the all-state second team are Kristin Worley of Anaheim Savanna (left) and Autumn Bishop (right) of Murrieta Valley. Worley set a state record with 281 career hits, including 81 for this season. Bishop had a great season after her twin sister, Amber, was lost with a knee injury.

The 34th annual Cal-Hi Sports all-state teams package for softball also includes 30 players named second team overall plus 30 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 more unique California high school sports content 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 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 2016 Cal-Hi Sports all-state softball second team members as well as third team:
