Former Pasco standouts sign with Saint Leo

Former Pasco pitcher Colena Lazar and her twin sister, Colesa, signed to play softball at Saint Leo University this morning, their father, David said.

Colena turned down a scholarship at Florida Atlantic to play two years of junior college ball at Santa Fe College in Gainesville. She was an all-state pick in 2009 after striking out 250 batters during her senior season with the Pirates.

Colena was named a second-team All-American by the National Junior College Athletic Association as a freshman at Santa Fe and made the third team this year. She broke school records with 57 wins, 26 shutouts, 597 strikeouts and six no-hitters during her career.

Colesa pitched and played outfield and first base at Santa Fe for two years. She was a second-team All-North Suncoast selection by the Times in 2009.
