Kilbourne Ends Successful 2018 Season - May 31, 2018

Kilbourne Ends Successful 2018 Season

2018 Worthington Kilbourne Wolves (OCC "Cardinal" & State Division 1 Regional Champions)

Worthington Kilbourne’s playoff run ended Wednesday night in an 18-8 loss to Cincinnati St. Xavier in a “Final Four” match-up played in Dayton, Ohio. While a loss and the end of a season always stings in the moment, it was a remarkable 2018 campaign for the Wolves on many levels.

Worthington Kilbourne finished the season with a record of 17-6, and earned an OCC Cardinal Division Championship along with an OHSAA Division 1 Regional Championship. The Wolves win in the Regional Championship against Upper Arlington earned Kilbourne’s 14th appearance in the State “Final Four” in the school’s 27 year history.

At the JV level, the Wolves finished the season 12-1 and also went undefeated conference play. The success of both Varsity and JV is a nod to program depth and a positive sign for future success.

The 2018 season was a very successful maiden voyage for first-year Head Coach Mike Lippert. Lippert was a longtime assistant for the Wolves who took over the Head Coach position in the off-season. In his first season as Head Coach, Lippert earned OCC Coach of the Year and MSLCA Coach of the Year.

Most of all congratulations to all student-athletes for a fantastic and memorable season on and off the field. Many Wolves earned All-Conference and All-Region honors.  The Wolves success on the field is matched by the number of community service hours members dedicate through the team’s “Man-Up” community service program.

A special thanks and best wishes to all the graduating seniors and their families. We appreciate you and will miss you.

“…For the strength of the pack is the wolf, and the strength of the wolf is the pack”



ThisWeek News: Cincinnati St. Xavier Beats Worthington Kilbourne 18-8 - May 31, 2018

ThisWeek News:  Cincinnati St. Xavier Beats Worthington Kilbourne 18-8

DAYTON — Kilbourne wasn’t able to climb out of an early hole against St. Xavier.

The Blue Bombers scored on their first two possessions and led 7-2 after the first quarter en route to a decisive win over the Wolves in a Division I state semifinal May 30 at Chaminade Julienne.

Kilbourne finished 17-6, while St. Xavier improved to 18-3 and will play St. Ignatius in the state final.

The Wolves got a goal from Jake LeVette to pull within 2-1, but failed to take advantage of a man-up advantage seconds later, turning the ball over. St. Xavier then got a pair of goals from both Nick Shamsi and John Holcomb that more than offset a goal from Kilbourne’s Carson Kott to take a big lead into the second quarter.

“That was a big play at the time, but I’m not sure that play was a turning point,” Kilbourne coach Mike Lippert said. “They beat us in transition all night and they beat us in getting ground balls. They have two guys who are exceptional faceoff guys who both will play Division I college lacrosse. We also weren’t able to execute our clear the way we typically do.

“Kudos to (St. Xavier). They are a great team. They’ve got a lot of dudes who are big, fast and athletic.”

The Wolves never got closer than three goals after the opening quarter, trailing 10-6 at halftime and 14-6 after three quarters.

The game was delayed for 2 hours, 4 minutes because of lightning with 9:29 remaining and Kilbourne trailing 15-7.

Nick Clay, Ryan Wesolowski and Jake LeVette all scored two goals for the Wolves, while Holcomb and Johnny Marrocco both scored four goals for the Blue Bombers.

Kilbourne teammates celebrate eventual game winning goal (8-7) -- May 25, 2018


Posted May 25, 2018 at 10:16 PM


The second-seeded Worthington Kilbourne High School boys lacrosse team scored four of the game’s final five goals to defeat top-seeded Upper Arlington 8-7 in the Division I, Region 3 final May 25 at Fortress Obetz.

“This is incredible. We’ve wanted this opportunity all season and we got it and now we’re going to state,” said Wolves sophomore Will Alban, who scored the winning goal with 4 minutes, 27 seconds remaining. “It was a perfect ground ball by Ryan Weslowski and a great take up the field and a great look by Carson Kott that got me open for the shot. It was a team effort.”

Kilbourne, which fended off the Golden Bears in the game’s waning minutes, improved to 17-5 and advanced to play Cincinnati St. Xavier in a state semifinal May 30 at Dayton Chaminade Julienne.

“Pretty amazing,” Kilbourne coach Mike Lippert said. “At halftime, I told the kids we were in this place before (in a 6-5 loss to UA in a regular-season game April 14), but this time we were going to finish it. We stuck to the game plan and our defense has played well all season, so we were in a good spot at the end when they had the ball with 22 seconds left.

“It’s not often we beat Arlington, so we’re going to enjoy this. They have such a great tradition and program over there. I thought (goalkeeper Dane Jackson) played very, very well and I’m just so proud of all of them.”

UA, which finished 19-3, led 3-0 in the first quarter, 5-4 at halftime and 6-5 entering the fourth quarter.

Kott tied the game off an assist from Jake LeVette and Biglin scored off an assist from Nick Clay to give the Wolves a 7-6 lead with 7:01 left. The Bears tied the game on Harry Baker’s goal with 6:13 left before Alban scored the final goal while in transition following a UA turnover.

“They took advantage of one of our turnovers and we had two or three chances in the final minutes and didn’t take advantage of them,” UA coach Chris Olson said. “It was a good game from two great teams and we came up short and you have tip your cap to Kilbourne.”

Kott, Wesolowski and Biglin all scored two goals for the Wolves. Baker and Charlie Little both scored two goals for the Bears.
