Watterson High School senior Alessandra Margello has committed to play field hockey at Wittenberg University.

Margello, who lives in Powell, started at attacker and played a key role last fall as Watterson finished 19-2 and reached the state final, where it lost to Columbus Academy 2-1 in double overtime.

Not only did Margello score the only goal in the second-seeded Eagles’ 1-0 victory over third-seeded Thomas Worthington in a district final Oct. 27 at Dublin Jerome, she also scored Watterson’s goal in the state final Nov. 3 at Upper Arlington.
