State Rep. John Boccieri (D-Poland) today will present Canfield high school senior Hannah Cianciola and sophomore Sydney Cianciola with a commendation honoring them for earning the OHSAA Division I State Girls Tennis Tournament doubles crown during the fall 2016 season.


“The perseverance, teamwork and athletic talent of these young women clearly paid off in what was a very competitive match, and it is my honor to present them with this award for their hard-earned achievement,” said Boccieri. “In addition, Hannah and Sydney have excelled both inside and out of the classroom, maintaining high GPAs while also playing tennis. I am pleased to have the opportunity to recognize student athletes for their commitment to perfecting a sport while maintaining an equal focus on academics.”


The elder Cianciola sister has four varsity letters in tennis, is a four-time first team all-conference selection and has been named conference “Player of the Year” three times. The Division I match was her fourth time qualifying for the OHSAA State Girls’ Tennis Meet. Sydney Cianciola, though just a sophomore, earned her second varsity letter this season. The sisters defeated another sister act in the final match 6-4, 6-3.


Rep. Boccieri will be presenting the commendation at the Canfield School Board meeting tonight.

State Reps. John Boccieri (D-Poland) and Michele Lepore-Hagan (D-Youngstown) today expressed concern about House Bill (HB) 591, a Republican-led effort to once again overhaul the state’s school report card system. The bill would leave current triggers in place for schools that are under or near academic distress—a move the lawmakers say unfairly targets districts in academic distress like Youngstown, Lorain and at least 22 other districts across the state.
