As stated several times, there’s not even close to the number of games that would have needed to be played to fairly select any sort of official 2020 Cal-Hi Sports All-State Teams for softball this year. We still wanted to do something with an honor roll list of top seniors who have either enjoyed outstanding […]
Partly as a result of the season getting shut down and our intention to provide extra coverage for spring sports athletes, for the first time we are adding Hot 100 player rankings for softball, specifically focusing on the Class of 2020. We also found the perfect person to do it, longtime Southern California softball analyst...
As is another of our traditions, we have a final & expanded version of rankings for California’s best softball teams at the close of the season. That unfortunately became official last Friday with spring sports cancelled for the duration of the school year due to the Coronavirus. How hard is it to rank some teams...
It is increasingly looking like the 2020 spring season for high school sports in the state is finished due to school closures amid the Coronavirus pandemic. But we did take some time in the last two days to go through all of our various sources for a look at baseball/softball players who had turned in […]
There were some games over the weekend in the CIF Southern Section and next year we expect the season to begin much earlier due to the addition of CIF regional playoff games at the end. Still, here’s our first look at the top teams in California for the 2020 season, which starts off with good […]
This is the first of four posts announcing the 37th annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State Softball Teams and like baseball we are starting with the underclassmen.

The choices for State Junior Player of the Year, Sophomore Player of the Year and Freshman Player of the Year were equally difficult as for Ms. Softball. There’s not a no brainer of the bunch. We did have one for medium schools, however, since one of our six Ms. Softball finalists was from that category. […]
He’s a guy we’ve considered for the highest coaching accolades in football, but for various reasons it didn’t work out. But now that Pleasanton Foothill’s Matt Sweeney is coaching softball and had one of the top teams in the nation this season, the timing is perfect to tell his story. It ended up not being […]
Showing how difficult the choice may be for Ms. Softball State Player of the Year in 2019, two of the six selected as finalists are from the same team (state No. 1 Norco). It’s not going to be a breeze for Mr. Baseball State Player of the Year, either. Two juniors are among a group […]
Foothill of Pleasanton wins in matchup of state top 10 teams to earn CIF North Coast Section Division I crown. Junior Ms. Softball State Player of the Year candidate Nicole May launches a two-run homer and tosses a one-hitter with 13 strikeouts as Falcons end season with 28-0 final record, one of the best in […]
