High School Softball Approved In Wyoming For Spring 2021


High school softball is officially coming to the state of Wyoming, it was announced last week after the Wyoming High School Activities Association (WHSAA) voted unanimously, 16-0, in favor of the adoption of the sport.

The first season of high school softball in Wyoming will begin in the spring of 2021. South Dakota is now the only remaining state in the United States that does not have a sanctioned high school softball season.

More than one year after the movement began to bring sanctioned high school softball to Wyoming, the WHSAA got the necessary eight programs across the state to commit to the adoption of the sport.

"The WHSAA approving softball is a victory for the girls across the state of Wyoming," grassroots organizer Keith Ungrund told the Casper Star-Tribune after the decision was announced on Tuesday. "The movement that took breath again in August of 2018 was a unified effort of girls to demonstrate to their school board the level of interest and willingness to work with the schools to make this a reality."

With softball's addition for 2021, Wyoming will have 11 girls' sports to match the 11 boys' sports it offers at the high school level.
