The Ozone Howard Little League 10U Bulldogs on Friday capped a magical season by defeating a New Jersey squad, 15-5, to win the 2017 Eastern Regional Softball Championship in Pennsylvania.
The girls toppled teams from 11 east coast states to emerge victorious at the prestigious Jenkins Township tournament.
When asked who had earned Most Valuable Player honors, manager Lou Piazza said, “You can’t single one girl out—this is an accomplishment of the whole team. Each girl contributed, from pitching to good base running to great hitting.”
Coach Tiffani Spinelli added, “These girls are really special, and deserve this. It is the girls’ dedication, along with the support of their parents, that made this all possible.”
It has been an historic ride for this Bulldogs team. The girls scored a spot in last week’s tourney after clinching both the New York City and State championships.
