HARTFORD, CT — State Rep. Tony Scott, R-112th, and Senate Minority Leader Kevin Kelly, R-21st, welcomed the four-time State Champion Masuk High School Panthers softball team to the State Capitol on Tuesday.
“The word dynasty is used a lot in sports, many times overused, but in this case it’s warranted,” Scott said. “This team has won back-to-back-to-back-to-back state titles. They have also been the No. 1 ranked softball team in the state of Connecticut, regardless of division, the last four seasons, while going 101-2.”
“I invited the Lady Panthers of Masuk High School Tuesday to the Capitol to celebrate that success and wish them luck in their title run again this year,” said he said.
A citation was presented to the team in the House chambers recognizing the hard work and dedication of this group of student athletes.
Team members were joined by Masuk Athletic Director Craig Semple, Head Coach Leigh Barone and Assistant Coach Emily Woznick.
“The team is currently 15-1 for the season, ranked number 3 in the state, number 1 in the L Division, and on pace for a fifth consecutive championship,” Scott said.
The state championship game is slated for June 10.
