COLUMBUS, Ohio – An Ohio native, Hanna Killeen is staying home and will put on the scarlet and gray this fall as a member of the Ohio State field hockey team.
Named the Northeast Ohio Player of the Year in 2020, Killeen was a first team All-Ohio selection as both a junior and senior at Hudson High School. Her play made Hudson a winner as the Explorers were state runners-up in both 2018 and 2020. In addition to a state runner-up finish, Hudson also won three NEOFH league championships and was a district runner-up in 2017 and 2019.
A multi-sport athlete, Killeen also played lacrosse at Hudson and was a soccer player through eighth grade. She didn’t start playing organized field hockey until the seventh grade, but when combining her work ethic and athleticism, it was easy to see why Killeen went on to become one of the best players in Ohio.
In her four year career at Hudson, Killeen scored 52 goals and had 32 assists. Her best individual season came in 2020 when she scored 21 goals and had 17 assists. For her efforts, Killeen was named the USA Today Ohio field hockey player of the year.
The playing field wasn’t the only place where Killeen excelled while in high school. She was a member of the National Honors Society, Academic All-Ohio and a three-time Hudson Scholar-Athlete. Also active in many extracircular activities, Killeen was the editor of Hudson’s school newspaper and active in student government.
