The regular season is winding down in WPIAL softball as teams are down to a week and a half of section games remaining.

Much like high school baseball, some teams are now in catch-up mode due to covid-related issues while at least one program, Sto-Rox softball, has shut down for the spring.

The district is expected to decide early next week on the makeup of the 2021 WPIAL softball playoffs.

Whether the top four teams from each section qualify as expected or it’s an open field like the basketball postseason, these teams listed below have secured a spot in the district softball playoffs.
