The CIF Southern Section recently announced the selections for the 2024 All-CIF boys’ and girls’ spring sports teams. Among the top athletes recognized, local softball players have made an impressive showing across various divisions. The All-CIF First Team selections, presented by the LA84 Foundation, were chosen by the CIF Southern Section Softball Coaches and were acknowledged in June 2024.

This year’s awards recognize only First Team selections, with no recognition given to Second Team selections, which are typically chosen by individual school coaches. The CIF Southern Section is proud to highlight these exceptional athletes and looks forward to celebrating their achievements at the upcoming awards ceremony.

Congratulations to all the nominees and their outstanding performances this season!
