We’re going to start selecting the 39th annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State Softball Teams in a few days and here’s an updated list of nominees on our board. These are the ones from CIF sections in Northern California (with the Central Section in the north). Thanks to all who sent in nominations for those not on the board before and to those who sent in information about players already nominated. It’s still not too late to get it in. These lists also help us for coverage of the 2023 season.
This is a post for Gold Club members only on CalHiSports.com. Please help us out today by becoming a member of our Gold Club so you can see all of our great content. Several of the upcoming all-state team posts will be for Gold Club members only as well plus upcoming state record updates. For more on special offer to get signed up for $3.99 per month, CLICK HERE.
What We’re Looking For: It’s only too late to send in a nomination once the “publish” button is pushed on one of our all-state posts. You can send a nomination with each athlete’s position, year in school, significant statistics. Make sure to list the school, too. Comparing a player not on the board yet to one who already is listed also can be very important toward eventual selection. Limit each nomination to one page please. Send to: firstname.lastname@example.org or call, text (209) 608-1317 (that is the cell for editor Mark Tennis).
Format: All-state teams will be selected separately for underclassmen, medium schools and small schools. A final top 30 overall team also will be done with each of those 30 players featured with a writeup. Second team and third team for large schools and seniors only also will be done. There is a separate category for what we call multi-purpose, which is where we often highlight those softball players who are top pitchers and top hitters.
Thanks to special Northern California correspondent Daniel Poulter for major contributions to these lists. Please give him a follow @DanielJPoulter. Finally, congratulations to following all-state nominees currently on our board for the various 2022 all-state softball teams:
