Disbanding is likely the only reasonable solution. A request for re-rating almost always falls on deaf ears. When a team ages in its age bracket, doesn't pick up "younger" players or new players, and loses its ability to compete at the level rated, that situation is seldom considered by those who re-rate teams.
Why not play in bordering state senior olympics and senior game tournaments, and various other unrated tournaments in the meanwhile, and when your team goes to the next age level, then consider rejoining the "super" softball organizations? By doing so, your team will not be brutalized by harsh ratings, and your players can again enjoy the game in a competitive atmosphere.
