Past Girls Basketball State Champions

Alabama Girl's Basketball

    Although girl's have played high school basketball in Alabama since the 1920s, it did not become an AHSAA sanctioned sport until the 1970s.

    The first AHSAA state championship tournament was played following the 1978 basketball season.

    The first recognized state champions were 4A-Jeff Davis, 3A-Sumter County, 2A-Winfield and 1A-Mars Hill.

    Since then more and more schools have joined in making girl's basketball one of the primary sports in Alabama.

    Following years of research, in June of 2007 the website became a reality. Many people have gotten involved to assist us  with research of the schools and teams to make this a reality.

    Other team sports have joined football as a part of our research. Initially will include information about coaches, state playoffs, all state teams, player awards and team records.

    It is virtually impossible to provide scores for every  game for every team. Who knows, later even that may be a possibility. There is still a lot of work to do with the all state teams of years past but our intentions are to find every team.

    We encourage everyone to get involved in helping us provide the most accurate information possible. If you have information that would be useful to us please let us know.
