The state championships for the fourth year of Wyoming High School softball are Thursday through Saturday in Gillette. The 2024 season finishes with an eight-team, double-elimination state tournament at the Energy Capital Sports Complex. Fields No. 1 and No. 2, the two closest to the parking lots at the complex, will be used to play games. These fields face southeast and southwest in Gillette. Thunder Basin is the two-time defending state champs.


Seeding was based on each team’s conference record. The top four teams from each conference qualified for the state tournament. Thanks to tiebreakers in both conference races, the seeding is set.

Both Green River and Kelly Walsh finished conference play at 3-7, but the Wolves were 2-0 in head-to-head games, which gives the Wolves the No. 4 seed. Both Laramie and Wheatland finished at 5-7 in conference games. They split with each other. Laramie went 1-1 against No. 3 seed Cheyenne East, and Wheatland was 0-2. The Plainsmen get the No. 4 seed.
