It was a much more difficult final decision than in many of the Ms. Softball State Player of the Year honors that have been done over the last 40 years, but in the end pitcher-hitter Randi Roelling checked the most boxes that are looked for and the Modesto Central Catholic standout has now been named […]
Vista Murrieta ends up being the only school with three first team players for the decade with two of those from the same family. Selecting this team also shows how great California was in the 2015 season and it was a challenge to try to get as many members of the just-named 2020 U.S. Olympic...
Despite a loss in the last game, there really isn’t any other way to go for this year’s winner for the state’s longest-running and perhaps most prestigious individual softball honor. Norco’s Taylor Dockins just has to be the one on so many levels, from how she’s handled all of the attention she got this season […]
It’s not the ESPYs, but 28 others have been chosen alongside Gatorade National Player of the Year Madilyn Nickles and Ms. Softball State Player of the Year Nicole Bates in being among this year’s All-State Super Elite first team.

It’s another tough choice in a sport that has seen several of them in recent years.

Not quite. Merced’s Madilyn Nickles actually has legitimate competition in her own backyard, based on the criteria we […]
This will be the final set of these honors for the 2015-16 school year and three of them led their teams to section championships last weekend – from Eagle Rock, San Jose and Ceres. The other choice from Torrance still has games to play.
Just like baseball, nearly 80 new players and new photos have been added for the final version of all-state softball nominees for the 2015 season. It’s still not too late to send in information, but first all-state teams will be announced soon (baseball is going out first). If you can’t see this post, it’s for...
