This group of the state’s all-time greatest Top 30 softball teams begins with No. 16 Bullard of Fresno 1999 and ends with No. 30 Charter Oak (West Covina) 1993. See which other teams were selected and featured from No. 16 through No. 30 in this expanded, updated version of this feature. You’ll need to be...
We begin announcing the 41st annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State Boys Basketball Teams with a look at the best of the best among juniors, sophomores and freshmen. State Team of the Year Sierra Canyon of Chatsworth leads the pack with three honorees (one junior, one sophomore, one freshman) but there are a bunch of schools with...
No sooner did we get started with baseball and softball Players of the Week than due to circumstances way beyond our control this will be the last one for at least a few weeks and until we find out if spring sports will resume. Hopefully, we will be able to re-start this feature this season. […]
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...
In another of the closest selections ever, the Norco High catcher edges out two others to collect the state’s longest-running individual softball honor. She is the fourth from Norco to be Ms. Softball this decade and is only the second catcher now on the all-time list. In the end, despite the accomplishments of the five […]
It’s official as Norco is named the 2019 State Softball Team of the Year.

The Cougars also made it […]
The season has actually already begun for a few teams in the CIF Southern Section plus the L.A. City and Central Sections. For the state rankings, the No. 1 team to start shouldn’t be much of a surprise due to the returning players at defending CIFSS D1 champion Norco. There’s also the usual powerhouse squads […]
The No. 1 and No. 2 teams in the final state and national rankings combine for six first team picks to headline this year’s 36th annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State Softball Team. This also ended up being a great year for catchers and we went with six of them on first team. This group of 30 […]
This one was one of the closest selections ever, but what happened in the last game and local consensus is the difference as Payton Tidd of San Marcos earns the state’s longest-running individual softball honor. There were five outstanding finalists this year but it basically came down to two from the CIF San Diego Section. […]
If you weren’t paying attention when our Ms. Softball finalists were named, only one of the five was a junior so you should have correctly assumed that the State Junior Player of the Year was automatically going to be Norco’s Kinzie Hansen. Joining her and Ms. Softball POY Payton Tidd of San Marcos as statewide […]
