Three schools tied for most state titles and seeking more

Currently, three schools have won the highest school softball state championships, and all three are on track to add to their records.

Salem (N.H.), Crescent (Iva, S.C.), and Southington (Conn.) each have 19 titles, with the latter two ranked No. 1 in their respective states.

According to MaxPreps, Southington is undefeated to start the season. Two-time defending Class LL state champions, the Blue Knights, are 9-0 and ranked No. 1 in the state’s overall computer rankings.

The team is 19-3 and ranked No. 1 in South Carolina among Class AAA teams. From 1987 to 1997, the Tigers won 11 consecutive championships.

Salem might have the toughest road to its 20th state championship. While the Blue Devils are 11-1 overall, they will have to beat undefeated Concord (17-0) to win a state championship.

According to state association websites, here are the high school programs that have won the most state championships. There is no state tournament in California, and South Dakota and Wyoming do not sanction high school softball.
