The all-state ballot was sent to softball head coaches on Tuesday morning.

It's the final step in the process for selecting the all-state softball teams, which began last week. That process is as follows:

  • Leagues determine their all-league teams.
  • Players who were selected first-team all-league by their leagues are placed on the all-state ballot.
  • The ballot is sent to coaches to ensure all first-team all-league players are on the ballot.

  • The votes are tallied, and the all-state teams are announced.
