McColley, Riedel Recognizes State Champion Fairview High School Softball Team at Ohio Statehouse
COLUMBUS—State Senator Rob McColley (R-Napoleon) and State Representative Craig S. Riedel (R-Defiance) this week honored the Fairview High School softball team at the Ohio Statehouse for winning the 2021 Division III State Championship.
"This is yet another team that has overcome the challenge of not having a season last year," McColley said. "I am proud of this exceptional group of young women for rising to the occasion."
This is the first state championship for Fairview High School softball, who won their championship game in a "run-rule" 10-0 victory. Fairview finished the season 28-1, losing only their first game.
"The Fairview Girls Softball Team showed incredible grittiness throughout the season capping it off with a fantastic state championship run that has made the Fairview community and all of Defiance County very proud,” said Representative Riedel. “Congratulations to a class group of young ladies and great coaches! It was truly a dream season for the lady Apaches!”
McColley and Riedel presented resolutions on behalf of the Ohio House and Ohio Senate to the team.
