All-State Softball Nominees (Part 1)

Now that all of the final team rankings are done, it’s time for us to work toward selection of the 35th annual Cal-Hi Sports all-state softball teams. The first step is this post of all-state nominees from every CIF section. If someone is missing, don’t get mad, just let us know. There will be an updated list posted for Gold Club members that will be the one we’ll be working off of toward final selections of the various teams.

Note: This list is compiled so that coaches, parents and readers can submit additions, corrections and make comments about which players should be selected when all information is received. Nominations are always welcome. This list will be updated and posted one more time prior to the teams being finalized. The second list and additional all-state softball content will be for Gold Club members only. Join our team today by CLICKING HERE.

What We’re Looking For: You can send a nomination with each athlete’s position, year in school, significant statistics. Comparing a player not on the board yet to one who already is can be very important toward eventual selection. Limit each nomination to one page please. Send to: or call/text (209) 608-1317.

Also, be aware that not all freshmen, sophomores or juniors we are considering for all-state underclass may be on this list. We also normally wind up choosing players who aren’t on this list for some of the smaller CIF divisions as well. These players will come to light when all of the various major newspaper-based honor squads are released.

Format: Thirty players will be chosen all-state overall first team with 30 more on second team plus additional lists. Each of the first 30 players are written up. There also are 30 players each for large schools, medium schools and small schools. The all-state underclass team will consist of juniors, sophomores and freshmen mixed together.

Pitchers Who Hit, Hitters Who Pitch: We have had as many as nine players listed as multi-purpose on the various all-state softball teams over the years. For this reason, it is very important to identify those pitchers who have hitting statistics or those hitters who have pitched. Please indicate in any nomination which positions a player played.

Info For Players Already On The List: Don’t assume we know all there is to know about a player on the list, either. Send us a nomination to make sure all facts are turned in and placed into our files.

Here are the nominations currently on our board for the various 2017 all-state softball teams:

    I feel that Riley Kuderca a Junior from Patterson High School is being overlooked.

      You are absolutely correct!!! She is being overlooked, so are dozens of others girls. I’m super happy for a lot of girls on these lists. Great Job, way to work hard. But, whoever is putting it together needs to get out, watch some ball and not just ask coaches to send in the info.

        We don’t just ask coaches. If a girl from Patterson gets onto the Modesto Bee team, she won’t be missed. If the Modesto Bee doesn’t pick a girl from Patterson and the coach doesn’t send in anything, then she might be. This was a first list. If most responses were negative like yours, then we’d just stop. But most are positive and it helps us to cover the sport in many other ways.

    I just sent you all a nomination. Julie Granadeno our of the cif-la section is a great player. I hope she gets on your list.
