Here are Scorebook Live’s preseason Top 10 rankings for Class 2B Washington high school softball. Our class-by-class Washington softball rankings are typically released every Monday throughout the season. With spring sports on hold due to coronavirus concerns, it’s possible these will be our only softball rankings of the 2020 season.
The rankings are compiled by SB Live Washington senior reporter Todd Milles.

The returning 2B EWAC champions scored often, and have one of their power hitters back in 3B Tory Coates, now a senior
