High school baseball: Teams with the most state championships

Tucson has won four championships since the 1950s, but still has more than any other school in the nation.

2021-May-22
It's been 34 seasons since Tucson won an Arizona state baseball championship, and the Badgers have won only won four since 1957. Yet, Tucson has heads MaxPreps list of teams with the most high school baseball championships.

The Badgers won their first state title in 1912, but the greatest stretch of sustained excellence for Tucson came between 1939 and 1956. During that 18-year period, Tucson won 15 state crowns, including eight in a row from 1939 to 1946. The greatest Tucson team, however, might be the 1972 team that went 25-0. Tucson has rebounded to appear in the Class 5A state finals in 2018 and 2019, finishing as the runner-up each time.

Woodrow Wilson (Washington, D.C.) is closing in on Tucson and might have tied the Badgers by now if not for COVID. Wilson has won every DCIAA championship since 1993 and it would have been the favorite in 2020 and 2021. Wilson plays in an association with just 15 schools.

Asher (Okla.) is one of three schools tied with 22 state championships. That total is actually a bit misleading since Asher has won a total of 45 baseball championships. However only 22 of them have come in the spring. With no football program, Asher also plays baseball in the fall and has racked up 23 championships during that season as well.

Other teams with 22 championships include Bishop Hendricken (Warwick, R.I.) and Jackson Prep (Miss.).

The championships listed are based on information found on state association websites. Not all state websites had complete lists of past champions. MaxPreps also included independent and private school championships, including TAPPS in Texas, the MAIS in Mississippi and the NCISAA in North Carolina.

Past champion lists were unavailable for AISA in Alabama, the SCISA in South Carolina and the VISAA in Virginia. California is not included because it does not hold state championships in baseball (although a few championships seasons were held in the 1920s.). The Inter-AC in Pennsylvania is also not included, although Penn Charter holds the record there with 46 championships dating back to the late 1800s.
