Field Hockey

Margello to play at Wittenberg

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.
