2023 OVERALL AND LEAGUE RECORD/ FINISH: 9-8-0, 4-4-0 Mid-Michigan Activities Conference (third, 12 points)

NOTABLES/OUTLOOK/COACH’S QUOTE: Byron finished 9-8-0 overall and was a bit inconsistent a year ago. The Eagles did outscore their opposition 50-45 with four shutouts but were knocked in the district semifinals. Byron started this season 1-4-2 through April 23 and were outscored 24-7, signaling a rebuilding campaign.

HEAD COACH: Marc Smith

2023 OVERALL AND LEAGUE RECORD/ FINISH: 1-12-2, 0-8-0 Mid-Michigan Activities Conference (fifth, no points)

ROSTER: Alexis Bailey, sr. F/M/G; Gwendolyn Bell, soph.; Camryn Canute, jr. G/F; Josephine Dinaj, jr.; Emma Hawkins, sr. F; Jenesis Kline, sr.; Izabell Konesny, jr. F; Brooklynn Kukulis, fr.; Rachel McPherson, soph.; Felicity Morris, soph.; Carlee Musall, fr.; Skylynn Nata, soph.; Aeryonna Pascal, soph.; Taryn Patterson, jr.; Montana Spaulding, fr. M; Ella Sworm, jr. D/M; Alexandria Weaver, fr.

NOTABLES/OUTLOOK/COACH’S QUOTE: Coming off a trough campaign, Durand brings back a bulk of its roster coupled with some promising freshmen as the Railroaders hope to climb up a couple of notches in the standings and be more competitive against the league leaders and quality competition outside the MMAC. Durand was outscored 89-12 last season and shut out nine times during its 1-12-2 season. Durand started 1-4-1 this season but has already scored nine goals and is building momentum.

 

SCHOOL: Montrose

HEAD COACH: Jason Perrin

2023 OVERALL AND LEAGUE RECORD/ FINISH: 11-4-1, 6-2-0 Mid-Michigan Activities Conference (second, 18 points)

2023 STATE TOURNAMENT RESULTS: Lost in D-4 district semifinals to Saginaw Nouvel Catholic Central (7-1)

KEY NEWCOMERS: Natalie Kammerzell, fr. M/F; Cheyenne Massey, fr.; Alissa Robinson, fr.; Sophia Shultz, fr.; Maylin Studer, fr. F/M; Marisa Guerrero, soph.; Caitlyn Thornburg, soph. M.

ROSTER: Lauren Bickel, sr.; Grace Blair, jr.; Ava Burgess, sr.; Riley Curry, jr.; Addison Fejes, jr.; Miley Harrington, soph.; Emily O’Neal, soph.; Samantha Owens, soph.; Avery Railling, sr.; Hannah Robinson, jr.; MaKenna Schlorf, jr.; Alivia Shultz, jr.; Natalie Kammerzell, fr.; Cheyenne Massey, fr.; Alissa Robinson, fr.; Sophia Shultz, fr.; Maylin Studer, fr.; Marisa Guerrero, soph.; Caitlyn Thornburg, soph.

NOTABLES/OUTLOOK/COACH’S QUOTE: Montrose was second in the MMAC last season after recording 11 wins with a 60-19 scoring edge, eight shutouts and only two shutouts against the Rams. Montrose should engage in a race with defending champion Ovid-Elsie this season in the MMAC, which is five schools this year with Chesaning again not fielding a team. The Rams opened up the campaign 4-1-0 through April 23, outscoring its opposition 25-4 with four shutouts. Montrose did drop its first meeting with Ovid-Elsie and has a match in mid-May with a must-win situation on the line if the Rams are to grab a piece of the pie.

 

SCHOOL: Otisville-LakeVille

HEAD COACH: Jerrid Hunt, third season.

2023 OVERALL AND LEAGUE RECORD/ FINISH: 6-13-0, 2-6-0 Mid-Michigan Activities Conference

2023 STATE TOURNAMENT RESULTS: Lost in D-3 pre-districts to Armada (10-3)

RETURNING STARTERS: Macy Freeman, sr. F/M; Noelle Marshall, sr. CB; Stephanie Erwin, sr. G; no more players specified.

OTHER KEY RETURNEES: No players specified.

KEY NEWCOMERS: No players specified.

ROSTER: No list submitted, and no list located on school’s athletics website or an outside source.

NOTABLES/OUTLOOK/COACH’S QUOTE: The Falcons only graduated two players from their lineup, so Otsiville-LakeVille is hoping for more consistency and better results this season. Through April 23 of this year, the Falcons stand 4-4-0 and outscored the opposition 27-22 with two shutouts. That’s a major improvement over last year’s three shutouts, being shut out five times and outscored 91-55. This team likely won’t challenge Ovid-Elsie and Montrose just yet in the MMAC standings, but a third-place finish and more competitiveness against some of the better teams in the Thumb, Flint, Lansing and Saginaw areas should be the norm this season.

 

 

SCHOOL: Ovid-Elsie

HEAD COACH: Jerome White

2023 OVERALL AND LEAGUE RECORD/ FINISH: 14-3-3, 8-0-0 Mid-Michigan Activities Conference (first, 24 points)

2023 STATE TOURNAMENT RESULTS: Def. Stockbridge (8-0); def. Eaton Rapids (6-2); lost in D-3 district finals to Williamston (5-1)

RETURNING STARTERS: Evalyn Cole, sr. M/F (All-State Honorable Mention); Ava Bates, sr. G (All-State Honorable Mention); Hailee Campbell, sr. M; Sophia Sweet, jr. M/D; Rian Kirby, jr. D; Madison Thorton, jr. F; Dannika Campbell, soph. CB; Lillian Bates, soph. D; Hailee Palus, sr. M.

OTHER KEY RETURNEES: Genevive Hills, sr. D; Zoe Busch, sr. D/M; Amy Davis, sr. M/F; Francesca Giacobbe, sr. D; McKenzie Keck, soph. F/M; Ava Kremer, soph. F/D; Audrianna Lukas, jr. D; Brenna Melt, sr. M/F; Alyson Moore, soph. D; Sarah Newman, sr. G/D; Aubrey Parkhouse, sr. D/M; Sonja Ramons, sr. M/F; Lianna Shearer, jr. D/M; Madison Thorton, jr. M; Norah Wilcox, jr. D/M.

KEY NEWCOMERS:; Belle Cooper, fr. D/M; Adalynn Roberts, fr. M/F;

NOTABLES/OUTLOOK/COACH’S QUOTE:

 

SCHOOL: Chesaning

NOTABLES/OUTLOOK/COACH’S QUOTE: Although Chesaning has enjoyed some recent success in boys soccer, where it won the MMAC in the fall of 2023 and broke into the Division 3 state rankings for the first time, the Indians have struggled to get its girls soccer program off the ground. According to MHSAA.com, the school has scheduled games in 2018, 2019, 2020 (entire spring sports season cancelled), 2021, 2022, 2023 and 2024 but each time the school could not attract enough student-athletes to join the team. This leaves two open dates in the schedule of opposing MMAC schools. League rival Mt. Morris has recently dropped its program after struggling with its numbers for the past 11 school years.

 

SCHOOL: Mt. Morris

NOTABLES/OUTLOOK/COACH’S QUOTE: A decade ago, the Panthers launched a fledging girls soccer program, but it never took off with flying colors. Numbers were always a game which led to losing records each season or cancelling of various seasons altogether. According to MHSAA.com, Mt. Morris was winless in 2014 (0-11-0) and followed that up in 2015 (0-6-0), 2016 (0-6-0), 2017 (0-6-0), 2018 (1-10-0) and 2019 (1-9-0). After the spring sports season Michigan was cancelled due to Covid, Mt. Morris had 17 games scheduled that season and 16 games scheduled in 2021, but the Panthers did not have enough players come out for the team that season, which forced another cancellation. The school has not brough back girls soccer in 2022, 2023 or 2024. The school has never added boys soccer.
