Twelve softball teams from across the state have punched their tickets for the final destination of the season: Penn State.

The PIAA will crown six new champions Thursday and Friday after the two defending champions still alive in the semifinals, North Penn in Class 6A and Beaver in 4A, were eliminated.

Three top-ranked teams from last week’s Trib HSSN state softball rankings — Pittston Area in 5A, Lewisburg in 3A and DuBois Central Catholic in A — were able to stay on top of their classification’s mountain heading into the state championship game.

Here is the district breakdown for the 12 team’s participating in this year’s softball finals:

The WPIAL (District 7) has four teams playing for state titles while Districts 2, 4 and 9 have two schools each. There is one team apiece from District 1 and 12.
