Our second installment of the summer in CHL Profile will have some similarities to the first profile.  Coach Sue Savage is the Indian Hill Track & Field and Cross Country coach.  She, of course, was  Anna Podojil’s track & field coach.

Coach Savage was born and raised in Pittsburgh.
  She received an athletic scholarship to West Virginia University for track & field in 1978.  She was the first woman to receive an athletic scholarship to WVU for track & field.  She received her BS degree in Chemistry from WVU and went on to complete her Master’s in Educational Administration from Xavier in 1995.  She has been married to her husband Russ for 32 years and they have two children.  Megan is married to Tom Knox and they live in Columbus, Ohio.  Jake resides in Brooklyn, New York. Sue’s coaching career started at a small school in Maryland where she coached track & field.  She coached track & basketball at Forest Park (1987-1991).  That is where she did her student teaching (1988).  She started coaching track & field and cross country at Indian Hill in 1991.  Her teaching career at Indian Hill began in 1995.  Coach Savage teaches Advanced Chemistry to sophomores & Advanced Placement Chemistry to juniors and seniors. 
Sue credits her dad, Rich Wingertsahn, as the reason she competed in track & field.  She said her dad was a very supportive parent. “Whenever I was heading off to compete, he would always say ‘Run the pants off them, kid’.  And I did!”  Her husband Russ was the first person she coached in 1984 (more on that in the Q&A).  “He has always been extremely supportive of my coaching.”

Here are some questions for Coach Savage:

SID - You ran track & field in high school & college.
  Was it always a goal to get into coaching?
Coach - When I was in college, I had a summer job as a camp counselor where I coached softball. At the time, it wasn’t on my radar to get involved in coaching track & field. After college, I was working as an analytical chemist for the department of defense on Aberdeen Proving Grounds outside of Baltimore, Maryland. I met my husband, Russ, running each day at lunch time. He asked me to help him train to break 40 minutes in a 10K. Thus, my coaching career began.

SID - What were the circumstances around being hired for your first coaching job?

Coach - Russ saw an ad in the local Hartford County, Maryland, paper for a boys’ head track & field coach at a small Catholic high school, John Carroll. He said, you should look into this position. I interviewed, and got the job. I would go into work at 6:00 AM so I could get to practice by 3:30. It was the perfect first coaching job. I was surrounded by people who believed, at 24 years old, I had the right stuff to become a good coach.

SID - You started coaching at Indian Hill before you taught there.
  Was that a challenge not being in the classroom?
Coach - My first three coaching job, John Carroll, Forest Park and Indian Hill, I wasn’t in the building. It is difficult to recruit students for the programs when you are not in the halls of the building every day. Some of my first athletes at Indian Hill, like Dan Spinnenweber, Amy Terry, and Sarah Busken, helped with getting students to participate. 

SID - You are the head coach for both cross country and track & field.
  What are the positives of coaching both and does it help in recruiting for both?
Coach - I love coaching both sports. They both involve running, but are a completely different experience for athletes and coaches. Coaching both sports help with getting and keeping athletes in the programs. For example, during the fall of his freshman year, Ben Bayless played soccer at Indian Hill. During the spring, he decided to run track, and began to experience some success. As he formed relationships with other athletes and the coaching staff, it wasn’t difficult to convince him to run cross country where he had a very successful high school career.

SID - Year in and year out, Indian Hill numbers in track & field and cross country are more often the largest of any league school.
  Is this because, “winning breeds winning”, intensive recruiting from the coaching staff, a combination of both, or something else?
Coach - Success does put the programs into the limelight, and potentially plants an idea of participating into other students’ minds. Everyone on my coaching staff is in the building, and we are constantly inviting students to join our programs. However, if you coach for an extended time in the same program, you will have some really good years, and some not so good. The goal is to stay consistent with your coaching philosophy. I have always coached each and every athlete to become his or her very best whether she is the fastest 400M runner in the state or the slowest. Every athletes deserves to feel valued and a part of the program. Every athlete needs to hear me yell, “Moooooooove!” just for him or her.

SID - You are the head coach of both boys and girls for each sport.
  What are the pluses and minuses of being the head coach of both?
Coach - I truly enjoy coaching both boys and girls. There are differences in how I coach the boys verses the girls. I also think the boys and girls work really well together. Everyone cheers on each other. We are one TEAM! Also, because we run the programs together there is better coaching. We have 4 track and field coaches to cover all the events, and athletes receive the expertise they deserve. The minuses are collecting uniforms and paperwork. I have been coaching for so long, I have efficient systems in place, but sometimes a few uniform items slip through the cracks.
 

SID - Your boys were league champs this year, but last year they won the first boys’ track & field title for Indian Hill since 1989.
  You had a pretty good group coming back from that team.  Did this add to the confidence of the team that they could go back to back?
Coach - Actually, we lost a lot of talent when the 2018 class graduated. We just took the attitude to fill those spots, and the boys stepped up to the challenge. Having the boys go back to back CHL and District Champions has been awesome!

SID - Your girls came into this season with back to back track & field league championships.
  Last year you won without Anna Podojil.  With almost all of your scorers coming back, including a healthy Anna, you had to feel good about your girls coming into this season.
Coach - So I am asked this question often, and I can honestly say I wasn’t really thinking about the team. I coach one athlete at a time, one event at a time. I just wanted to get Anna back physically and mentally, keep everyone healthy, and then see what the girls could do. I did schedule several really competitive meets to make sure athletes were begin challenged, and ready for the CHL meet and beyond.

SID - Your regular season schedule had some tough competition, including meets in West Virginia & Pittsburgh.
  Looking back, did that help in your post season?
Coach - Absolutely, both meets had incredible competition. An athlete has to know what it feels like to not be winning an event, and learn how to hand it. The experiences helped our athletes to build a level of confidence necessary to succeed at a high level.
 Our program was invited to the Wheeling Park Invitational, and I was honored. The meet featured four teams that went onto win their state championships. The Baldwin Invitational, Pittsburgh, featured 69 schools with the top talent from the greater western Pennsylvania area.

SID - Outside of the state meet, what were some highlights for you from this past season.

Coach - In 1976, I was a sophomore at Carrick High School in Pittsburgh. That year, the 3
rd Annual Baldwin Invitational was the very first time I competed against other girls, and I did well. I always talked about taking my teams to the Baldwin meet, to go home. To have had the opportunity to share a bit on my story with my athletes, and then have them compete successfully, was just an incredible experience! I felt so proud. We really became a family at that meet! I will always be grateful for that experience. Plus, on Saturday, we went to Kennywood Amusement park, and conquered the rollercoasters together.

SID - You had athletes in nine events qualify for the state meet.
  Is that the most events for an Indian Hill track & field team at state?
Coach - If you count Alex Galbraith in the 800M, Ben Bayless in the 3200M, and the boys 3200M relay, the program competed in 12 events at the OHSAA Track & Field Championship. Yes, it was the most events for Indian Hill. It was so much fun!

SID - Saturday was the finals day at state.
  Take us through that day.
Coach - One athlete at a time, one event at a time. My thoughts are always for athletes to have a good experience, run a personal record and make the podium. On Friday night, our 3200M relay of Meghan O’Brien, Claudia Hollander, Amy Prugh and Elizabeth Whaley finished 6
th with a new school record, and they made the podium. It was a great start to the meet. Saturday, Anna Podojil ran the 100M finals to finish 6th, and make the podium. Then, freshman, Elizabeth Whaley competed like an upperclassman in the 1600M. Elizabeth broke the school record to finish 4th and make the podium. Anna was up in the 400M. I knew this was her best chance to become a state champion again. She broke the school record, and finished 1st. That brought tears to my eyes because she had truly recovered from her knee injury.  Ellie Podojil was up next in the 300m hurdles. Ellie broke the school record, finished 3rd and made the podium. Elizabeth Whaley stepped onto the track to do the really tough double of running the 800M after making the podium in the 1600M. Elizabeth ran an inspiring race to finish 10th. Alex Galbraith followed Elizabeth in the 800M. Alex ran a personal record to finish 7th and make the podium. Anna was up again. This time in the 200M. In 2017, she was the state champion in this event. I just wanted her to make the podium. She finished 3rd. I knew we were scoring points, but I never looked. My assistant coaches, Coach Siebenaller and Coach Jackson, knew what was happening, but they know not to tell me. While Ben Bayless was competing in the 3200M, the coaches were discussing the team scores. Both looked really happy, but I was busy getting Ben’s splits. Ben finished 5th to return to the podium. He was 7th in the 3200M in 2017.  Then, the girls were up in the 4x400M relay. During the indoor season, Ellie Podojil. Meghan O’Brien, Louisa Klaserner and Anna Podojil surprised me at the state meet by upsetting Akron Buchtel to become state champions! I was nervous for the girls, and concerned because Elizabeth Whaley had run the 1600M and 800M. Ellie started for us, and she ran the race of her life passing the baton to Meghan in first place and running the 400M in :57.00. Meghan built on our lead by running a :57.00, and passed the baton to Elizabeth who broke the 1:00 in the 400, :59.00, for the first time. Elizabeth passed the baton to Anna who ran a comfortable :55.00 to cross the finish line first. I looked at my stop watch, and I just couldn’t believe their time. Then, it flashed on the score board. New school record, state champions and a new OHSAA division II record. Just amazing!!!! The girls set 5 new school records at the state meet!

SID - Anna said in her story that the girls were not aware that they had clinched the state title going into the 4 x 4.
  As coaches, when did you know that you had clinched the title?
Coach - I knew, officially, after Anna crossed the finish line in the 4 x 400M relay. Coach Siebenaller turned to me and asked, “Do you want to know now?” I said yes, and he said “The girls are State Champions scoring 43 points which is 15 points better than second place.” That was a thick layer of icing on the cake!

SID - I think lost in the excitement of the girls’ run for the state title was senior Ben Bayless closing out his great high school running career with a 5
th place podium finish in the 3200 Run.  What are your thoughts on Ben and the other boys who qualified for state?
Coach - We are a program and the girls were cheering on Ben and Alex. In the video of the girls 1600M relay, you can see Ben cheering on Anna into the finish. Ben is an extremely talented young man who will be competing for the University of Dayton. Ben has been instrumental in helping me raise the expectation of athletes in the Track & Cross country programs at Indian Hill. Alex Galbraith came into his own this track season. It was outstanding to watch him kick into the finish to move from 11
th to 7th and earn a state medal. The boys 3200M relay of Ben, Alex, Nolan Heffernan and Tommy Tauer also competed at the state meet and finished 14th. I am grateful for their dedication.

SID - Indian Hill track & field has set team and individual records that might stand for a long time.
  How do you see the program going forward?
Coach - I will continue to coach as I always have, one athlete at a time, one event at a time. I will work to help each and every athlete to become the very best runner, thrower, jumper, hurdler and person he or she is meant to be. I will always be grateful for the opportunities to share my passions. So, the program may not ever experience the success, on the big stage, as this past season, but it will continue to be a successful program.

We congratulate Coach Savage on a great season and wish her luck in future seasons.

Anna was named the Penn Station Athlete of the Month in April.
  From all other athletes of the month, she was named Penn Station Athlete of the Year for the 2018-2019 school year.  Along with that came a $10,000 Scholarship.

Here are some questions we had for Anna:

SID – You have chosen to play soccer at the University of Arkansas.
  You have equal accomplishments in soccer and track & field.  Why soccer for your scholarship sport and was it a hard decision?

Anna – Soccer has always been my primary sport and the recruiting process for soccer starts much earlier than track.  When I made the decision, it wasn’t too difficult.  In fact, my track performances didn’t really start taking off until after I committed for soccer.
SID – As a follow up to that, do you plan to “walk on” for track & field?

Anna – I’m going to see how I feel after the soccer season.
  If I’m feeling good, I may try to run.  The Arkansas women’s track & field team just won the National Championship, so it would be fun to be part of that program.

SID – Why Arkansas?
  What will your major be?

Anna – A few reason I chose Arkansas… I lived there for about 8 years when I was younger, so I grew up following the Razorbacks.
  I always had a dream of competing for them.  Also, the women’s soccer team has been on the upward swing the past few years.  I wanted to be a part of a program that I could help get to the next level and complete for a SEC and National Championship.  Finally, the University of Arkansas is an amazing place.  Not many people in Ohio have been there, but it has so much to offer athletically & academically.  I haven’t decided on a major yet.

SID - The first 2 ½ years of your varsity career went great.
  Then came the injury in the off season. .  How did it occur and what was your mindset at the time?  Also, how long was rehab?

Anna – I tore my ACL and meniscus in my right knee during a club soccer game in Florida.
  I was upset, but knew I would come back 100%.  My rehab was about 5-6 months.  I had surgery to repair my meniscus in January (2018) and then ACL repair in February and was cleared to play in August.  Even though I cleared to play, it still took time to get back to where I was before the injury.  I was very fortunate to have a great surgeon and athlete trainers who were always very optimistic about returning to soccer and encouraged me along the way.

SID – Three of the four years of varsity sports, you had your sister Ellie as a teammate.
  How was that?  Have you two been competitive throughout your life or is she more or less a training partner?

Anna – It has been awesome to play with Ellie the past three years.
  She’s an amazing player and we play great together.  I can’t wait for her to join me at Arkansas next year.  We don’t really compete against each other too much.  We get along great and really support one another more than anything.

SID - Indian Hill had back to back state titles in soccer.
  Was the second one tougher?

Anna – Yes, it was definitely tougher for me personally and for the team.
  For me, it was tough coming back from my injury and not being 100% the entire season.  For the team, we just had to deal with a lot in terms of injuries, etc.  Plus, we had a target on our back every game from winning the title the year prior.

SID – What do you attribute to the success of the Indian Hill soccer program the last four plus years?

Anna – Obviously it all starts with our coaches: Amy Dunlap, Dave Lawson, & Monica Brown.
  They set the tone for everything and create a competitive, yet fun environment.  Also, each one of my four years, we had strong senior classes.  I think it’s really important to have seniors setting the expectations and leading the underclassmen.

SID – How long have you played soccer?

Anna – I think I started when I was 7.

SID – Tell us about your club experiences.
  How did you get involved with the U18 team that on a national championship?

Anna – I was fortunate to have great club experiences over the years at Cincinnati United and Ohio Elite.
  Like high school, I had great club coaches and teammates, several of which are great friends of mine.  In 2017, my club team won the national championship which is one of my best soccer memories.  For the U18 USWNT, the national team coaches scout some of the big club tournaments.  They watched me play a few times and sent the invitation to attend their training camp.  It’s an incredible experience to play with the top girls from around the country.

SID – When did you get interested in track & field?

Anna – I ran some when I was younger, but really became interested my freshman season thanks to Coach Savage.

SID – Your senior year in track & field was a “dream” season.
  Up to the state meet, what are some highlights that stand out to you?

Anna – Since I missed last track season, the first highlight this season was just being able to get out there to compete again.
  I ran in a couple of indoor meets over the winter to get back into track shape.  My first highlight from a meet is when we won the 4 x 400 Relay at the indoor state championship meet.  It was an exciting come from behind win against Akron Buchtel which is the same team we beat at the outdoor state championships.  The outdoor season was a lot of fun.  Coach Savage took us to a couple of big meets in Pittsburgh and West Virginia.  I knew we had a strong team from the top to bottom and it all came together at the end of the season by winning the CHL, district, regional, & state.

SID – The team qualified for nine events at state.
  Did this help the confidence of the athletes?  Before you actually clinched the state title, was there a point in the meet you all said, “We have this in the bag”?

Anna – We all knew we had a chance to win state, but never thought we had it in the bag.
  Even though we had nine events at state, you’re not guaranteed any points.  Each runner has to perform and place high enough to get points.  A lot can happen at a state meet and there can be big point swings from event to event.  Every Indian Hill girl ran great and contributed to the team win.  It was an amazing feeling for all of us.  I credit Coach Savage and the support staff for having us all ready to compete.  The state meet is a big stage and for every single one of us to have personal best performances says a lot about our preparation and focus.

SID – You had to run in four events in the running finals.
  How tough was that to do and did you put a priority which were the most important events?

Anna – At the state meet, running four events is very difficult.
  It’s a quicker meet, so there is not much recovery time between events.  Plus, every race is against great competition, so you have to give 110%.  It’s also difficult because many of the runners I was competing against were only running in one or two events, so they were more fresh.  I didn’t really have a priority race.  I thought my best chance to win was in the 400, which ended up happening, but I gave my best in every race.  My focus this year was helping our team win the state title, so that just means getting every point you can for the team.

SID – Indian Hill clinched the state title going into the 4 x 400 Relay.
  Did that take the pressure off you four making it easier to break the state record?

Anna - Honestly, we did not know we had clinched the title.
  We still thought we had to win the race or least beat Akron Buchtel to clinch the win.  Our focus was on winning the 4 x 400 Relay state title.  Ellie and Meghan (O’Brien) knew that Elizabeth (Whaley) and I had already run a few races and their job was to get us a lead.  Ellie started and put us in the lead position and each one of us just kept increasing the lead.  We were running for each other.  We all ran our best.  It was a great way to finish off my high school athletic career at Indian Hill.

SID – You anchored that 4 X 4 team.
  Tell us your thoughts as you crossed the finish line?

Anna – it was just amazing because it was like winning three different things at once.
  We won the race, won the state team championship, and broke the state record.  Knowing I was going out on top and that it could possibly be my last track race ever, also made it very special.  My relay teammates, my sister Ellie, Meghan O’Brien, and Elizabeth Whaley all ran their hearts out too.

SID – Tell about any person or persons who have been a positive force in your success.

Anna – Most important my family has been there for me through anything and everything.
  I can’t thank them enough for the endless support over these past years and all of the sacrifices they have made so my siblings and I could play the sports we love.  I have the best support system in the world from my parents to my coaches, to my teammates and just the entire Indian Hill community.

SID – Five years from now, what do think Anna Podojil will be doing?

Anna – I would really love to be traveling around the world after college participating in mission trips or continuing my studies abroad.
  If my college soccer career goes well, I could see myself playing professional soccer in the NWSL.


Anna is currently at the University of Arkansas.  We wish her luck in her college career and beyond.                 

July 3 Update - We have found out that Anna has received yet another award.  She is the LaRosa's Female MVP of the 2018-2019 school year.


As I post this, it has been almost a month since the 2018-2019 varsity season came to a close.  But June has been a busy month for the league schools.  If you have been following Twitter, you know that several schools and sports have been having camps.  More are scheduled for July.  Conditioning will start in July in most sports.  The first official fall practices will begin on August 1st.

Two of our league schools having a "redo".  One is just getting started and other is in the finishing stages. 
A large part of Mariemont High School is getting major renovation.  Construction has started on Phase 1 which will be mostly new classrooms.   In June of 2020, Phase 2 will begin with renovation of the arts/athletics wing. Both projects are scheduled for completion in August of 2021.  During the construction time there will be many changes in the Mariemont High School campus.  Twenty two temporary classrooms are being installed in the parking lot next to the football stadium entrance. New parking has been installed on the campus grounds.
The last two years, construction has been progressing on the new Reading K-12 campus.  Things are wrapping up.  Staff are scheduled to move in during August.  School will start a little later this year, right after Labor Day.  Check out Twitter for pictures of both projects.

Check out available coaching positions.  Some new ones have been posted this summer.

We have kept many of the major stories from the past school year.  They are under older stories.  Check them out again. Many good memories in those stories. They will remain on the site through July.  We hope by August 1st to have football, soccer, golf, & volleyball schedules posted.

Meanwhile, enjoy your summer and keep coming back to the website for new stories and to look at the old stories.

Going into the final event of the Division II State Track & Field Championships, Indian Hill had a 5 point lead over 2nd place.  At that point, they had clinched the state championship, but the Braves put some "icing on the cake" as they won the 4 x 400 Relay in a state record time of 3:49.30.  Indian Hill ended up with 43 points, 15 better than 2nd place Oakwood & Akron SVSM.  Senior Anna Podojil had an outstanding final meet of her high school career.  She made the podium in all four of her events, two of them as state champ.  Anna won the 400 Dash with a time of 53.67, just missing the state record.  She won by almost 3 seconds over 2nd place.   Podojil anchored the state record 4 x 400 team.  The other members of that team were sophomore Meghan O'Brien, junior Ellie Podojil, & freshman Elizabeth Whaley.  Anna also had a 7th place finish in the 100 Dash (12.29) & 3rd place finish in the 200 Dash (24.73).  Whaley made it to the podium in three of her four races.  Besides the 6th place finish in the 4 X 800 Relay and the 4 x 400, she was 4th in the 1600 Run with a school record 5:03.31.  Ellie Podojil was 3rd in the 300 Hurdles in 43.55.
Congratulations to Coach Sue Savage and the Lady Braves on a fantastic season!

We will have more information on the state track & field meet later Saturday.


After having a disappointing day Friday in the High Jump, senior Marin Valentine of Mariemont more than made up for it.  She won the Division II 800 Run with a school record time of 2:13.12.  She is the first Warrior girl to win a state track & field championship in 38 years.  The only other time a female was state champion was Missy Casteller Fields in 1981 in the 100 Low Hurdles.  Congratulations to Marin on great season and a great track & field career!
