Women’s College World Series wins by school: Who has the most NCAA softball national championships in history?

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 five national championships since 2016 and is aiming to make it six 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.
