This week, the CA field hockey team played its final two games of the regular season.

On Thursday, October 10, the Bexley Lions came to Carlin Fields to challenge our girls. With goals from Regan Cornelius’21 (3), Kiersten Thomassey’20 (1), Annie Wimsatt’20 (1), Sarah Klingerman’21 (1), Carolyn Vaziri’22 (1), and Amelia Bruggeman’21 (1), the Vikings tamed the Lions in a dominant 8-0 win.

The next day, Friday, October 11, Academy took on its toughest opponent of the year at home, Pioneer High School, the number-one ranked Division 1 team in Michigan.

Pioneer was another level-skillswise, compared to the average Ohio team, but the Vikes were ready for this jump in skill. The game was the hardest of the year, with Academy letting in its first two goals of the season, but goals from Klingerman and Avery Mitchell’22 tied the game at 2-2 and sent the Vikes into sudden-death overtime. A few minutes in, Thomassey slipped a pass to the top of the circle, and Cornelius finished on cage to secure the Vikings a 3-2 victory, ending the season with a 15-0-1 record.

On Tuesday, October 15, our number-one seeded girls will kick off its postseason tournament against Olentangy Berlin, seeded 18, in hopes of defending the state championship.
