CASPER, Wyo. — The Wyoming High School Activities Association voted to officially sanction girls’ fast-pitch softball on Tuesday, Nov. 5.

The first season will begin in spring 2021 with Gillette set to host the first state tournament.

11 schools have already committed to offering the sport, with at least one more school considering offering softball.

WHSAA Commissioner Ron Laird says that Worland High School may join the other schools, but this has not yet been decided.

Laird says that further details of the season will be worked out at a WHSAA meeting in January.

Whether and how divisions will be split up will depend on the final number of teams participating.

Laird says the season will likely be 22 games. The length of the season will likely match spring soccer and track and field.

He says schools’ input will guide how the specifics of the season ultimately turn out.
