Compete as one; work as a team; win as a family – that was the slogan for the Indian Hill High School (IHHS) Track Team … and the student-athletes lived it until the end. The team won the school’s first-ever State Championship during the 2019 Girls Division II State Track and Field Meet held Friday, May 31, and Saturday, June 1, at The Ohio State University – breaking both state and school records along the way.
“I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with such a talented and dedicated group of young women,” said Indian Hill High School Coach Susan Savage. “The 2019 season has been an incredible journey. I am so proud to be a Brave!”

It is our first team State Track and Field Championship, and five new school records were set. This was a perfect ending to an incredible year for Indian Hill athletics, and we are so proud of these Braves!”
