State Championship
Thomas Worthington Wins Second Straight State Title
WORTHINGTON, Ohio – For the second year in a row, a Sophia Borghese overtime goal delivered a state championship to Thomas Worthington.
Borghese, a sophomore, took a pass near midfield, beat two defenders, and scored with 2:46 left in overtime as the Cardinals defeated New Albany, 2-1.
The game was scoreless at halftime. New Albany's Sophia Mariotti broke the deadlock with a goal with eight minutes left in the third period, but Thomas Worthington's Julie Conroy forced overtime when she scored off a penalty corner with just 2:52 left in regulation.
The state title is Thomas Worthington's eighth, second most in state history, and second in a row. In both 2022 and 2023, Thomas Worthington trailed in the second half of the state final before forcing overtime and eventually winning on a goal by Borghese.
Thomas Worthington finished its season 21-2-0 overall. New Albany, making its first appearance in the state tournament, finished 19-4-0.

New Albany Shuts Out Mount Notre Dame, 3-0
WORTHINGTON, Ohio – In its first trip to the state tournament, New Albany shut out Cincinnati Mount Notre Dame, 3-0, Thursday evening in the first OHSAA field hockey state semifinal at Thomas Worthington High School.
The Eagles (19-3-0) got a first-quarter goal from sophomore Sophia Mariotti, assisted by senior Olivia Boyles, and then a pair of third-quarter unassisted goals from senior Paige Cornelius. Freshman goalkeepers Caroline Spangenberg and Kellie Thompson didn’t need to make a save in the game thanks to the stingy New Albany defense.  
The Eagles advance to the state championship game Saturday against the winner of Thomas Worthington and Shaker Heights. Mount Notre Dame ends its season 13-4-3 and made its 10th trip to the state tournament.
