Indian Hill High School gave Anna and Ellie Podojil the opportunity to play a full season of soccer together.

The sisters took advantage, helping lead the Braves to an undefeated season and Division II state championship in their second season as high school teammates.

Anna, a junior forward, scored 38 goals en route to earning Division II Ms. Soccer honors from the Ohio Scholastic Soccer Coaches Association. Ellie, a sophomore attacking center mid, sparked the Braves’ attack, which outscored opponents 114-18 this season.

(with deepest apologies to Grantland Rice)

Outlined against a blue-gray November sky, the Four Horsemen rode again. In dramatic lore, they are known as Famine, Pestilence, Destruction, and Death. These are only aliases. Their real names are MJ, A-Pod, E-Pod, and dH (OK, maybe that’s more like three horsemen and a Shetland pony with a bad attitude). They formed the crest of the Indian Hill cyclone before which a Lake Catholic Cougar team was swept over the precipice at MAPFRE Stadium Friday afternoon as 1500 (frozen) spectators peered down on the bewildering panorama spread on the green plain below.

COLUMBUS - Indian Hill junior goalkeeper Kate Marrs ran to the corner and slid on her knees. Her teammates chased behind. A dozen yards away, their fans celebrated something they’d never been able to celebrate before:

Indian Hill won the Division II state title.

“This is just the very best feeling,” head coach Amy Dunlap said after the game. “It’s just a great feeling and this has been such an amazing team.”

The Braves beat Lake Catholic 2-0 on Friday evening at MAPFRE Stadium in the Ohio Division II state championship game, finishing with a 22-0-1 record. They were the only undefeated in Ohio girls soccer this season.
