Ohio Elite has always been about producing players. Players that can adapt, find solutions, and play in different situations. That has never been more evident than this season as OESA players filled the rosters of the Division I, II, and III Girls Ohio High School State Champions and Division I & III Boys Ohio High School State Champions.
For the first time in Ohio High School history, all three Girls Division State Champions came from Cincinnati. It is no coincidence that Ohio Elite players played major roles in helping their teams to victory.
"It is not a surprise to us that these athletes are having success away from Ohio Elite," stated Executive Director, Tim Lesiak. "We train players first, not teams."
The boys are not to be outdone with Coach Scott Sievering leading Summit Country Day to their third consecutive Division III State title with help from Sutton Eyer, Kieran Dowling, and Alex Waak.
Jacob Westerkamp hoisted the trophy in the Division I title match with Beavercreek High School.
"Could not be more proud of Coach Sievering and the boys at Summit. I know the players are getting top end coaching during high school from a top shelf person." commented Dave Schureck, Director of Coaching. "Watching Jacob (Westerkamp) mature and battle the last four years to become a leader in his high school team has been terrific. These are the things we hope for all our players."
