Each game the Indian Hill High School Lady Braves Soccer Team played this season – right up until the clock ticked down during the State Championship final at MAPFRE Stadium in Columbus Friday, November 9, 2018 – that was the battle cry they chanted. When the final buzzer sounded, it was time to celebrate.


“I think I was still in disbelief,” said Indian Hill Coach and Teacher Amy Dunlap. “Obviously having a 1-0 lead is a very nerve-wracking lead to have, but yet, I still felt we were totally in control of the game.”


“I kept looking back at the clock and watching the time tick down and just realizing that each moment and each second that ticked by we were getting closer and closer to that State Championship,” said Indian Hill Senior Bryn Wirthlin.


What the team earned – back-to-back State Champion titles.


“It was honestly so surreal and such a special moment,” said Indian Hill Senior Anna Podojil. “Just knowing our class has done something no other class has done – making it to the Final Four three years out of four and winning back-to-back State Championships – it was so special.”


“For that game to finally be over and put high school soccer to a close – I was so emotional – I could not stop crying,” said Indian Hill Senior Kate Marrs. “I wasn’t sad; I was so overwhelmed with emotion that I couldn’t take it because all the girls on the team have been such a big part of my life. It was so surreal winning and for that to be the final chapter of our book – it was perfect.”


The Indian Hill School District will recognize the State Champion Lady Braves Soccer Team at the 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 11, Board of Education meeting at the Indian Hill Elementary School Multi-Purpose Room; all Braves are invited to attend.
