The Women’s College World Series only started in 1982, but more than four decades of action have allowed a handful of schools to establish dynasties.
Fans are living through a dynasty right now. Oklahoma has won four national championships since 2016 and is aiming to make it five this year just a short distance from the school’s Norman campus. The Sooners are evoking memories of UCLA, Arizona, and other stretches of dominance in college softball history.
Oklahoma doesn’t reign supreme when it comes to all-time titles, however. Six schools have won the Women’s College World Series multiple times, and three stand above the rest.
Here’s a look at the history of Women’s College World Series champions, including a full list of schools who have won titles.
Most NCAA softball championships
Thirteen schools have won an NCAA softball title, and six have done it multiple times.
Three schools — UCLA, Arizona, and Oklahoma — have combined for 26 championships. The Bruins have been softball’s most consistent program, winning multiple titles in four different decades, but Oklahoma has quickly risen up the rankings with four national championships since 2016.
A title for the Sooners this year would place them only one behind Arizona. Oklahoma already broke the Wildcats’ record for the longest win streak in NCAA softball history.
Here is a full list of which schools have the most Women’s College World Series titles.
