Softball: Team State Records Launch

The teams at Archbishop Mitty of San Jose (left) and Norco are shown in several team categories in the first-ever softball state records posted online. The Monarchs also had best record for 2010s while Cougars had the most wins. Photos: Harold Abend & @NorcoHSSoftball / Twitter.com.

We now have a fifth sport with updated state records added to the CalHiSports.com website. It’s softball and we begin with a look at all of the state records in team categories, including pitching, hitting, win streaks, section titles, league titles and all-time wins. Plus, there are game records (two teams). We’ll be adding all of the individual categories for softball next and will have archived state records for all five of the sports primarily covered on this site. California high school softball state records have never been online before and we’ll have them all updated and ready to go in plenty of time before the 2021 season.

Note: We’re going to make this a free post on CalHiSports.com, but the much longer state record lists we’re going to link to will require a Gold Club membership. We now have extensive state record categories in our online archives in football, boys basketball, girls basketball, baseball and softball plus all-state team listings for more than 40 years in all sports. We also will have additional features on players and teams coming soon for Gold Club members as well. To become a Gold Club member for as low as 6.8 cents per day to support this continuing work, CLICK HERE.

Note: We of course utilize MaxPreps.com leader lists for current players and teams and we encourage all schools and coaches to use that platform. There can be errors in those lists, however, that are not edited (especially duplications) and there are still a few players & teams who have unreported totals. MaxPreps also only goes back to the early 2000s. All California records before that were obtained through research by Cal-Hi Sports. We are the only source for state softball records in California.
