CHAGRIN FALLS—Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) recently presented two House Resolutions, one honoring the Chagrin Falls High School Boys’ Lacrosse Team on its state championship, and the other recognizing Joseph Bistritz for his back-to-back cross county state championship.

Last spring, the 2015 boys’ lacrosse team accomplished something only five other teams accomplished in Chagrin Falls History: Winning a state championship as a team.  In the state championship game, the Tigers defeated Mariemont in double overtime.  Tiger’s player TJ Subel scored the final goal bringing them to victory!

In cross country, Joseph Bistritz has been no stranger to state titles. As a freshman, Bistritz had the best time as a ninth grader in the state cross country meet. He was the state runner-up as a sophomore. As a junior, he worked so hard in the off-season and during the year he was a state champion, and continued on with his training and hard work to win the state championship in back to back years.  Joseph is finishing with one of the best high school running careers ever in northeast Ohio.

“It was a privilege to honor such a fine group of young men at Chagrin Falls High School with two much deserved House Resolutions,” Representative Anielski said.  “The hard work and dedication both from the lacrosse team and Mr. Bistritz demonstrated in winning state titles is a point of pride for their school, community and most importantly themselves.”

Steven Ast, Chagrin Falls High School Principal, said, “Our school community is extremely proud of the 2015 lacrosse team winning the state championship.  It was great to have the members of the team together again to be recognized with State Rep. Anielski in front of our fans.  The way that team persevered by scoring a goal to tie with seconds left and then overcoming a hard-fought double overtime to win will be a moment cherished in CFHS’ athletic history.  A second outstanding athlete, Joe Bistritz, was recognized for his back-to-back accomplishment of winning two state championships, a truly remarkable achievement.  I can still remember the first time I saw Joe compete as a freshmen and was amazed at how incredibly fast he was.  I look forward to what this young man’s future holds.”
