CATHOLIC HIGH SCHOOL LEAGUE-CENTRAL DIVISION GIRLS SOCCER TEAM CAPSULES

 

SCHOOL: Ann Arbor Father Gabriel Richard

HEAD COACH: Matheus Morozowski, first season.

2023 OVERALL AND LEAGUE RECORD / FINISH: 6-13-1, 0-8-2 CHSL-Central Division (sixth, two points)

2023 STATE TOURNAMENT RESULTS: Def. Romulus Summit Academy-North (11-0); def. Wixom St. Catherine of Siena (8-0, district finals); lost in D-3 regional semifinals to Grosse Ile (4-1).

RETURNING STARTERS: Gianna Sanson, sr. M (All-State Second Team); Alyssa Townsend, jr. G (All-State Honorable Mention); Bethie Benz, sr. M (All-State Honorable Mention); no other players specified.

OTHER KEY RETURNEES: Haley Martens, jr.; Audrey Lang, sr.; Veronia Fredericks, sr.; Breanna Brawn, jr.; Mel Karls, sr.; Brynn McFarlane, soph.; Clare Flanagan, jr.; Tovia McNally, soph.; Grace Redente, jr.; Gianna Klinkhammer, sr.; Avery Dent, jr.

KEY NEWCOMERS: No plyers specified.

NOTABLES/OUTLOOK/COACH’S QUOTE: The Fighting Irish could score in bunches last season, which led to 56 goals, but Father Gabriel Richard had a difficult time stopping opponents as it yielded 54 goals on the season. The Irish recorded two shutouts and were blanked five times. A district champion last season, AAFGR is off to a 2-2-0 start through April 18, scoring seven goals while conceding six goals. That is a similar pattern of a year ago.

 

SCHOOL: Birmingham Marian

HEAD COACH: Danny Price, first season.

2023 OVERALL AND LEAGUE RECORD / FINISH: 15-2-2, 7-1-2 CHSL-Central Division (first, 23 points); def. Warren Regina in the CHSL Bishop Tournament (2-1).

2023 STATE TOURNAMENT RESULTS: Def. Ferndale (12-0); def. Bloomfield Hills Cranbrook Kingswood (2-0, district finals); lost in D-2 regional semifinals to Grosse Pointe North (3-2, 2OT, SO)

RETURNING STARTERS: Clair Dauer, soph. M (All-State Second Team); Olivia Zhanow, sr. M (All-State Third Team); Dani Mertz, sr. G (All-State Honorable Mention); Nadia Valka, jr. D (All-State Honorable Mention); Lily Robinson, soph. D (All-State Honorable Mention); Isabella Musachio, jr. F (All-State Honorable Mention); Agatha Valka, sr. F; Madeline Stenger, sr. F; Katelynn Freese, sr. D; Abigail Walton, jr. D; Bella Sheena, soph. M.

OTHER KEY RETURNEES: Abby Walton, jr. D; Hannah Koziarz, jr. F/M; Brooke Salkowski, soph. M/F; Madeline Major, soph. M; Lauren Hornick, sr. D; Emma Walton, jr. D/M; Giulianna Agrusso, soph. M; Charlie Bingham, jr. G.

KEY NEWCOMERS: Nia Bordogna, fr. M; Francesca Kulpa, fr. D.

NOTABLES/OUTLOOK/COACH’S QUOTE: There is a bevy of talent on this roster – and healthy – and this team will simply be difficult to score upon this season. Through April 18, the Mustangs are 4-0-2 with six shutouts and a 13-0 scoring edge. Marian is also ranked No. 1 in Division 2 as of mid-April. Last season the Mustangs outscored the opposition 53-8 with 13 shutouts but three of those goals came in the regional semifinals loss to Grosse Pointe North, the eventual state champion. There are 18 returnees in uniform this season, plus all 11 starters are back, as the Mustangs have exceptional depth.  For a program that owns nine state titles over the last three decades, this team is quite capable of making another run at state glory.

 

SCHOOL: Bloomfield Hills Cranbrook Kingswood

HEAD COACH: David Brown, first season.

2023 OVERALL AND LEAGUE RECORD / FINISH: 11-2-2, 8-1-0 CHSL-AA Division (first, 24 points)

2023 STATE TOURNAMENT RESULTS: Def. Walled Lake Western (1-0); lost in D-2 district finals to Birmingham Marian (2-0)

RETURNING STARTERS: Mackenzie Behnke, sr. D/M (All-State Honorable Mention); no other players specified.

OTHER KEY RETURNEES: Abigail Assemany, jr. F; Anna Assemany, sr. M; Ayelet Kaplan, sr. F; Belen Torres, jr. F; Carola Gorlier, jr. D; Eirene Metro-Roland, jr. F; Isabelle Elie, sr. M; Kendall Pankopf, jr. D; Lillian Pham, sr. M; Savanna Katz, sr. D*; Sophia Baldwin, jr. M*; Sravya Oruganti, sr. D; Sydney Korth, soph. F.

KEY NEWCOMERS: Joan Applefield, jr.; Julia Asfour, fr.; Harriet Cortez, soph.; Elynne Kim, fr.; Liliana Metro-Roland, jr.; Reagan Novell, soph.; MacKenzie Pankopf, soph.; Jasmine Parker, jr.; Abigail Plotzke, fr.; Madeleine Plotzke, soph.; Amaya Shahzad, fr.; Mizuna Tanabe, soph.; Ana Paloma Torres, fr.; Katherine Gabriela Torres, jr.

NOTABLES/OUTLOOK/COACH’S QUOTE: For the first time since the late 1990s, Cranbrook-Kingswood has a new head coach, as longtime assistant coach David Brown replaces Chad O’Kulich. The Cranes posted eight shutouts and outscored the opposition 41-16 last season enroute to winning the CHSL-AA Division and reach the district finals. Cranbrook-Kingswood was promoted to the CHSL-Central Division this season. The Cranes opened the campaign 2-1-1 with a 8-4 scoring edge through April 18.

 

SCHOOL: Dearborn Divine Child

HEAD COACH: Robert Grden, fourth season.

2023 OVERALL AND LEAGUE RECORD / FINISH: 8-6-6, 3-3-4 CHSL-Central Division (fourth, 13 points)

2023 STATE TOURNAMENT RESULTS: Def. Allen Park (5-0); def. Garden City (2-0, district finals); lost in D-2 regional semifinals to Trenton (4-1)

RETURNING STARTERS: Camryn Huhn, soph. M (All-State Honorable Mention); no other players specified.

OTHER KEY RETURNEES: Erin McCormick, jr. D/M; Stephanie Crawley, soph. F; Madeline Gregg, jr. M; Madeline Kujansuu, sr. M; Lilliana Ammar, sr. F; Jani Dickey, sr. D.

KEY NEWCOMERS:  Samira Jraiche, soph. G; Siage Kellums, fr. D; Alison Desai, jr. D; Reese Martin, soph. F; Cecilia Murray, jr. F; Ayla Szokola, fr. F; Anna Kujansuu, soph. M; Sophia Schaeffer, fr. D; Bella Hayes, sr. D; Bella Saleh, soph. D; Amelia Mastrogiacome, fr. M; Lillian Miramontes, jr. D.

NOTABLES/OUTLOOK/COACH’S QUOTE: The Falcons graduated 12 players, leaving multiple wholes in the lineup and ample opportunity for underclassmen to join the ranks and prove their worth. Divine Child posted an 8-6-6 record with a 45-35 scoring edge and four shutouts and ended up winning a Division 2 district championship. The road ended against Trenton in the regional semifinals.  With six sophomores and four freshmen and only seven returning letterwinners back, the Falcons have started slow through April 18 with a 2-2-0 record. That includes a 7-5 scoring edge and two shutouts. Camryn Huhn, the sole sophomore with varsity experience, is a returning All-State selection and a leader on this team.

 

SCHOOL: Farmington Hills Mercy

HEAD COACH: Tom James, sixth season.

2023 OVERALL AND LEAGUE RECORD / FINISH: 7-7-4, 4-3-3 CHSL-Central Division (third, 15 points)

2023 STATE TOURNAMENT RESULTS: Def. Farmington (6-0); lost in D-1 district semifinals to Northville (3-1)

RETURNING STARTERS: Audrey Guyot, sr. CB (All-State Honorable Mention; All-League; signed with NCAA Division II Purdue University-Northwest); Morgan West, sr. CB; Luwam Abraha, sr. M (All-League); Maddie Raetz, sr. M; Addison Cervenan, jr. F/M; Brianna Mikha, jr. F/M; Ruby Tohar, soph. M.

OTHER KEY RETURNEES: Elle Borys, sr. G; Lauren Gawne, jr. D; Miles Gouin, sr. F; Ainsley Henderson, soph. G.

KEY NEWCOMERS: Elizabeth Stachelek, fr. M; Shannah Schall, fr. M/D; Brynn Reichert, fr. M; Katie Hastings, fr. D; Maddie Linton, jr. D/M; Ariele Etue, soph. F; Sofia Finelli, jr. F/M; Isabelle Van Hoof, soph. D; Jacquelyn LeVasseur, jr. M.

NOTABLES/OUTLOOK/COACH’S QUOTE: Mercy was a quality defensive team last season, only yielding 22 goals but at times had a hard time scoring goals as their 22 team goals for the season indicates. The team did have seven clean sheets but was shut out five times on the year. This season the Marlins started 1-1-4 overall through April 18. That includes three more shutouts but only three goals scored and three goals against. If Mercy can develop a pure goal-scorer, then this side would be really dangerous. … “Overall, I expect a very solid team. We dropped down to D-2 this year, but we have been matched up with rivals Marian in our district. We scheduled a pretty tough slate of games to be sure we are ready for league and state playoffs. Marian always starts out as the favorite. They have a new coach but I am sure they will be fine as he is a very experienced and accomplished coach. Format has changed, we only play every league opponent once then everyone goes into a playoff bracket,” said coach Tom James.

 

SCHOOL: Warren Regina

HEAD COACH: Stefano Moraccini, xx season.

2023 OVERALL AND LEAGUE RECORD / FINISH: 13-8-2, 7-1-2 CHSL-Central Division (tied-first, 23 points); def. Farmington Hills Mercy (1-0, CHSL semifinals); lost in CHSL Bishop tournament finals to Birmingham Marian (2-1)

2023 STATE TOURNAMENT RESULTS: Def. Macomb Lutheran North (3-1); def. Algonac (8-0, district finals); def. Pontiac Notre Dame Prep (2-1, 2OT, SO, regional semifinals); lost in D-3 regional finals to Flint Powers Catholic (2-0)

RETURNING STARTERS: Angelina Moraccini, jr. D/M/F (All-State Second Team; All-League; signed with NAIA Madonna University); Sabrina Kiryakoza, sr. G (All-State Third Team; All-League; signed with NAIA Rochester University); Sabrina Sokol, jr. M/F (All-State Honorable Mention; All-League); Jenna Moeller, jr. M/D (All-State Honorable Mention; All-League); Maddie Corder, sr. M (All-State Honorable Mention; All-League; signed with NCAA Division II Northwood University); Cora Kujawski, sr. M (All-District); Maddy Mlynarek, sr. D (All-League, All-District); Kate Booms, soph. D (All-District); Avery Zdankiewicz, sr. M (All-District); Gianna Switalski, sr. D (All-District).

OTHER KEY RETURNEES: Ava Janusch, soph. F/M; Zoe Litz, sr. M; Lily Mason, sr. M; Nia Guess, soph. D; Lydia Gerdes, jr. M/F; Nina Giuliani, sr. M.

KEY NEWCOMERS: Maddy Steffani, soph. M; Mia Mollicone, soph. D/M.

NOTABLES/OUTLOOK/COACH’S QUOTE: Regina is coming off one of its better seasons to date and returns 10 starters, five All-State players and three players that have signed to play in college next school year. Regina won 13 games enroute to advancing to the D-3 regional finals, outscored its opposition 44-22 and notched nine shutouts. Through April 18 this year, the Satellites only played three games, recorded a 1-1-1 record and held a narrow 4-3 scoring edge. One can expect Regina to still be one of the best teams in the three-division CHSL and contend for at least a district championship. … “The girls are motivated and looking to continue progressing and getting better every game, to compete for championships. They are focused and determined to support one another and help out where needed. Our team is led by our two captains, Angelina Moraccini and Maddie Corder. The Catholic league is one of the most competitive conferences in the state. We are looking to continue where we left off last year and compete for a championship,” said coach Stefano Moraccini.
