The Worthington Kilbourne High School boys lacrosse team's record was never above .500 during the regular season.
The Wolves entered the postseason 8-10, but won six consecutive tournament games to capture their second state title and first in Division II. They defeated Toledo St. Francis 11-7 in the championship game June 4 at Thomas Worthington to finish 14-10 overall.
"This is a great feeling and a great experience to be able to do something like this," said senior attacker Luke LeVette, who scored five goals against St. Francis and was named Offensive Player of the Game. "We have a really close senior class and we overcame some adversity because people doubted us due to our record. But we played hard every game, and to win it all is a testament to this team sticking together."

Worthington Kilbourne players hoist the Division II state championship plaque following an 11-7 win over Toledo St. Francis on June 4 at Thomas Worthington.
Worthington Kilbourne’s mantra came to the forefront Saturday during a 11-7 win over Toledo St. Francis in the Division II lacrosse championship game at Thomas Worthington.
After St. Francis closed its deficit to one goal midway through the third quarter, Kilbourne took over and “left no doubt,” scoring five straight goals for an 11-5 lead with 4:05 remaining.
“That’s the slogan we came up with last summer after our two previous seasons ended in overtime losses,” coach Drew May said. “We wanted to leave no doubt, where a fluke play or an official’s call could cost us. It was the same for every practice: Make sure you work hard enough so we have no doubts in the game.”
