Rep. Bizzarro honors senior league all-stars at state Capitol

State Rep. Ryan Bizzarro, D-Erie, paid tribute today to the ladies of the District 1 Senior League softball team for finishing third in the Senior League World Series at a resolution presentation at the state Capitol.


The District 1 All-Stars won Section 1, State and Region titles on their road to the World Series. The team went 16-1, but then lost to a team from British Columbia in the international semifinals.


“I am so proud of these great women who are not only sports role models but an inspiration to all of us that if you have determination, you can accomplish anything,” Bizzarro said.


Bizzarro said the team is made up of players from Cambridge Springs, Cochranton, Conneaut Area, General McLane, Saegertown and Titusville. Head coach John Kutz accompanied the team to Harrisburg.


Bizzarro said the women were treated to a tour of the Capitol, met with Gov. Tom Wolf, and received citations from the state House and state Senate.
