The 2023 high school softball season is history with six new PIAA champions mining diamond gold.

Two of the new champions capped off perfect seasons with their gold medals: North Penn (28-0) in 6A and Everett (26-0) in 2A.

In 2024, the defending state champions will be North Penn in 6A, Northern York in 5A, Blue Mountain in 4A, Mid Valley in 3A, Everett in 2A and Tri Valley in A.

District 11 captured two state softball crowns with Blue Mountain and Tri-Valley.
