The OPRF field hockey team finished fourth in the Illinois High School Field Hockey Association State Tournament last week.

OPRF fell to Loyola 3-1 in the third-place game on Saturday. Junior Abigail Nevins scored for the Huskies, who was edged by No. 1 seed Lake Forest in the semifinals the day before.

OPRF head coach Jane Graham said though her team lost the two games, “It was not because of lack of heart. They played the best game of the season on Friday and Lake Forest managed to sneak one in in the last three minutes of the game.”

Seniors Gabrielle Klapman, Maddie Lena, Sara McCall and Nevins, a junior, received All-state honors.
