Final Softball Rankings

The pressures and expectations that come from being ranked atop a classification can be immense but the ending of the GHSA softball season saw programs handle pressure.

Six of the eight programs ranked atop the respective classes ended the season with state championships led by Class 7A No. 1 Buford, which won its 11th title and first since the Wolves won 10-straight from 2007-2016.

Pope won the program’s third title in Class 6A after winning championships in 2014 and 2019. In Class 5A, Northside-Columbus entered the playoffs ranked No. 10 and won it all. The title was the second for Northside after taking the 4A title in 2017.

In Class 4A, West Laurens won the program’s first title after entering the tournament as the fifth-ranked team in the class. Wesleyan entered the 3A playoffs at the top of the class and won it all. The Wolves have four titles – 2017, 2018, 2021 and this year.

In Class 2A, Jeff Davis took the title, the program’s first, after entering the playoffs atop the class. In Class A Division I, Heard County defended its title for the third-straight season and won the program’s fourth-overall championship (2014). In Class A Division II, top-ranked Emanuel County Institute captured the program’s first title after entering the playoffs atop the class.
