Last night the defending state champion TWHS Girls Field Hockey team beat rival Upper Arlington 2-1 with three freshman starters and their returning top scorer out with injury. Watch out for the Lady Cardinals again this year!
This Friday night is the annual football game between our two comprehensive high schools. Worthington Kilbourne High School opened in the fall of 1991 and the two schools did not play in the regular season for the first 15 years. OCC expansion led to the teams playing and since then this game has become a big deal in Worthington.
As someone who grew-up on the west side of the district, and now lives on the east side of the district, I dislike how intense the competition can become. It’s important to remember that we are one school district, with common goals, and a unified purpose. But, it’s also fun to see both of our teams on the field at the same time. The stands filled with blue and black on one side and with red and white on the other side.
As long as everyone, adults and students, behave, both teams will give maximum effort and it will be an excellent night. This year the game is at Thomas Worthington and there are numerous events planned. It should be a great night to be associated with Worthington Schools!
