Competing Teams – Bloomfield Hills, Oxford, Rochester, Rochester Adams, Rochester Stoney Creek, Troy, Troy Athens

 

 

SCHOOL: Bloomfield Hills

HEAD COACH: Alan Zakaria

2023 OVERALL AND LEAGUE RECORD / FINISH: 9-5-1, 2-3-1 OAA Red Division (tied-fourth, seven points)

2023 STATE TOURNAMENT RESULTS: Def. Birmingham Seaholm (3-1); def. Troy (1-0, district finals); lost in D-1 regional semifinals to Rochester Stoney Creek (1-0)

RETURNING STARTERS: Jenica Opdahl, sr. G (All-State Honorable Mention in 2023; All-State First Team in 2022; signed with NCAA Division I Air Force); Tess Wright, sr. D/M (signed with NCAA Division I Indiana State); Emma Henry, jr. M (All-State Third Team; committed to NCAA Division I University of Detroit-Mercy); Sophia Spano, jr. M/F; Ava Duquette, sr. M/F; Elaina Perrotta, jr. D/M; Lauren Cuson, jr. D; Chloe Salo, jr. F.

OTHER KEY RETURNEES: Lily Ehmann, jr. M; Lauren Barocky, jr. M/F.

KEY NEWCOMERS: Olivia Carlson, fr. F; Caroline Reynolds, soph. D/M; Chiamaka Okeke, jr. F; Abey Grundner; Charlotte Baroky, jr. D.


NOTABLES/OUTLOOK/COACH’S QUOTE: The 2022 Division 1 state champions took a slight step back in 2023, tying for fourth in the OAA-Red and not advancing past the regional semifinals. If that’s what you call rebuilding – nine wins and a district title playing a tough schedule – then the Blackhawks are just fine. Most of that team is back and Bloomfield Hills will again be a difficult opponent to play against this season. The Blackhawks play in one of the deepest leagues in the state and will again challenge for another district title.

 

SCHOOL: Oxford

HEAD COACH: Gabrielle Shriver, second season.

2023 OVERALL AND LEAGUE RECORD / FINISH: 12-5-3, 5-1-1 OAA White Division (first, 16 points)

2023 STATE TOURNAMENT RESULTS: Def. Lapeer (4-3, 2OT, SO); lost in D-1 district finals to Clarkston (6-2)

RETURNING STARTERS: Ella Boyd, sr. F (All-District; All-State Honorable Mention; signed with NCAA Division II Northwood University); Korinne Ihrke, sr. G (All-State Honorable Mention; signed with NCAA Division II Ferris State University); Maddy Boyd, soph. M/F (All-League); Sam Zeiter, jr. D; Ryan Walters, jr. F (All-League).

OTHER KEY RETURNEES: Maggie Casper, sr. D; Anna Terenzi, jr. F; Sierra Owens, soph. D; Allison Hufstedler, jr. D/M; Amelia Brown, jr. M.

KEY NEWCOMERS: Addison Dahkle, fr. M/F; Olivia Smith, fr. M; Avery London, soph. D/M/F; Vivian Cruz, jr. F; Camryn Budzik, jr. F; Ava Bailey, sr. M; Natalie Ramirez, sr. M; Piper Boyt, jr. M/F; Chelsea Myrand, fr. G


NOTABLES/OUTLOOK/COACH’S QUOTE: Oxford captured the OAA White Division last season, clinching the title on the final week of the league season by just one point over Birmingham Seaholm (16-15). The Wildcats’ reward? Being moved up to the OAA Red Division for the first time since Oxford joined the OAA from the Flint Metro League in 2010-11. Oxford outscored its opponents 48-31 last year but ran into some bad luck with a key injury before its district semifinals loss against Clarkston. The Wildcats’ district this year is very balanced – with Oxford, Clarkston, Lake Orion, Grand Blanc, Davison and Flushing all expected to field quality teams this year. … “This is a very tough conference, arguably No. 1 in the state. We’re looking forward to playing respectable opponents and take our program to the next level. Our girls are ready for it,” said coach Gabby Shriver.

 

SCHOOL: Rochester

HEAD COACH: Doug Steinard, fifth season

2023 OVERALL AND LEAGUE RECORD/ FINISH: 18-1-2, 4-0-2 OAA Red Division (first, 14 points)

2023 STATE TOURNAMENT RESULTS: Def. Lake Orion (4-0); lost in D-1 district finals to Rochester Stoney Creek (3-1)

RETURNING STARTERS: Alice Max, jr. G (All-League; NCAA Division I basketball recruit); Katelyn Guolla, sr. M/F (signed with NCAA Division III Elmhurst College); Kiely Robinson, jr. M/D; Romina McGuire, soph. M; Emma Barker, sr. CB (All-League; singed with NAIA Lawrence Tech University); Keira Nagy, sr. CB; Riley Simpson, jr. D.

OTHER KEY RETURNEES: Stella Marlow, soph. M; Karsen Jackson, sr. F; Nishka Sawkar, sr. M.; Presley Johnson, sr. F; Emersyn Crossley, sr. D.

KEY NEWCOMERS: Allison Jeric, soph. F (three-sport athlete); Lucia Erracalde-Santisteban, fr. M/F; Andie Jones, fr. F; Gabi Martin, jr. D/M (played with Nationals GA the last two years); Clara Banfield, jr. F; Skylar Lynch, sr. F; Nora Huber, jr. D; Elle Wadie, jr. M; Graci Gammo, sr. D; Ryleigh Brann, jr. M; Spriha Shibu, jr. M; Jelena Jankovic, jr. D.


NOTABLES/OUTLOOK/COACH’S QUOTE: After finishing third in the OAA-Red in 2021, the Falcons went undefeated in both the league and regular season in both 2022 and 2023. The 2022 campaign ended in the state semifinals against Northville (2-1) and ended against eventual state champion Rochester Stoney Creek (3-1) in last year’s district finals. The Falcons must replace a trio of All-Staters from their attack (Natalie Rayce, Ava Williams, Alaina Webb) and won’t score goals like they have the last three years. Plus, the Falcons lost an outside back (Liela Lanier) to the NCAA Division I level. But this team is still good enough to contend for league and district championships or maybe more this season. The problem is that most of the teams in the OAA-Red and the schools in the Falcons’ district will also contend. There won’t be many easy nights for Rochester anymore and the Falcons will have to run a gauntlet to win league and district titles this season.

 

 

 





SCHOOL: Rochester Adams

HEAD COACH: Josh Hickey, 10th season

2023 OVERALL AND LEAGUE RECORD / FINISH: 16-6-2, 2-3-1 OAA Red Division (tied-fourth, seven points)

2023 STATE TOURNAMENT RESULTS: Lost in D-1 pre-districts to Lake Orion (1-0)

RETURNING STARTERS: Sadie Rogers, jr. M/F (All-State Honorable Mention); Danielle Danko, sr. M/F; Kaitlyn Dempster, jr. CB; Helen Flores, sr. M; Alexa Cusmano, jr. D.

OTHER KEY RETURNEES: Lexi Calcamuggio, soph. G; Julianna Zobrist, jr. F; Yohanna Wang, sr. M/F; Evelyn Kekhoua, sr. F/M; Bella Hamerink, sr. F; Olivia Marcial, sr. M; Morgan Muir, soph. M/F; Regan Moore, soph. F/M; Samantha Hawkins, soph. D/M; Katelin Orsargos, sr. D.

KEY NEWCOMERS: Jordan Volko, sr. M; Catherine Delicat, sr. D (played last season with the Nationals GA); Maya Orlowsky, soph. M; Eda Nguyen, soph. M/F; Addison Engel, jr. D/M; Kyra Heinzmann, sr. D


NOTABLES/OUTLOOK/COACH’S QUOTE: The Highlanders were one of the youngest teams in talent-laden Oakland County last season. Still, Adams won 16 games, spent some time in the D-1 state rankings and tied for fourth in a deep OAA Red Division. There are 15 players back in uniform this season, several that started games at times, and Adams is again a top-15 team in Division 1. A 6-0 result over Clarkston and 1-1 draw against two-time defending OAA-Red champion Rochester shows that the Highlanders are very solid and could be a factor in a wide-open league and district race.  

 

SCHOOL: Rochester Stoney Creek

HEAD COACH: Bryan Mittelstadt, 14th season.

2023 OVERALL AND LEAGUE RECORD / FINISH: 26-1-1, 4-1-1 OAA Red Division (second, 13 points)

2023 STATE TOURNAMENT RESULTS: Def. Utica Eisenhower (3-2, 2OT, SO); def. Romeo (1-0); def. Rochester (3-1, district finals); def. Bloomfield Hills (1-0, regional semifinals); def. New Baltimore Anchor Bay (2-1, 2OT, regional finals); def. Saline (2-0, state semifinals); def. Hudsonville (2-1, D-1 state finals).

RETURNING STARTERS: Sarina Shaw, sr. M (All-League); Olivia Lombardo, sr. M.

OTHER KEY RETURNEES: Lauren Palmer, sr. M/F; Jessica Kennedy, soph. G; Kaitlyn Krier, sr. F (had injury that ended 2023 campaign early in the season); Lily Stickney, sr. M; Angie Toma, sr. M/F (signed with NCAA Division III Adrian College); Tigi Maio, sr. CB; Alyssa Welker, sr. D (injured all of last season).

KEY NEWCOMERS: Maddie Burns, jr. M/F; Delaney Batur, jr. D/M/F (played with Nationals GA last season); Lauren Vettraino, jr. D/M; Mira Porwal, jr. M; Gianna Kay, jr. D/M (sat out last season after transferring from Pontiac Notre Dame Prep); Renee Wrobel, soph. M; Riley Zsigo, soph. D/M; Ryan Hakala, jr. CB; Erin Rice, sr. G/M (played with Nationals GA last season); Zoe Avripas, jr. M/F; Morgan Lord, jr. M; McKenna Hubbard, sr. F; Emma Norden, fr. M.; Margo Keuten, jr. D; Sophie Bodzick, jr. F.


NOTABLES/OUTLOOK/COACH’S QUOTE: Stoney Creek graduated 13 players and lost two others for undisclosed reasons. Two other players had ACL injuries and spent most of or the entire 2023 season on the bench, plus one player had to sit out last year due to the MHSAA transfer rules. Gone from that overall group are nine starters and two-time Michigan Miss Soccer winner Lilley Bosley, now a starter at the University of Michigan, and a very deep class of players. Stoney Creek outscored the opposition 85-11 with 16 shutouts last season, but nearly 85 percent of that offensive production departed. The Cougars do have a collection of players that were on the bench waiting their time, players up from the junior-varsity and players that came back from the Girls Academy system. There’s talent all over the roster. It’s just mostly unproven at the varsity level. Shaw and Lombardo were regular starters and Palmer a part-time starter last season but was an offensive sparkplug late in the regular season and state tournament. Kennedy served as the understudy in goal and started a couple of non-league games and Krier was a starter at the beginning of the 2023 campaign before going down with an injury. A few others saw spot duty off the bench. The Cougars began the season 2-1-2 through April 13 but based on their schedule should be battle-tested come late May.

 

SCHOOL: Troy

HEAD COACH: Dan Troccoli

2023 OVERALL AND LEAGUE RECORD / FINISH: 9-6-2, 1-4-1 OAA Red Division (sixth, four points)

2023 STATE TOURNAMENT RESULTS: Def. Berkley (4-1); lost in D-1 district finals to Bloomfield Hills (1-0)

RETURNING STARTERS: Jenna Taylor, sr. M; Erin Soules, sr. F; Ava Fleming, jr. M; Audrey Hamilton, soph. M; Sabrina Gaul, soph. F; Brooks Hotts, jr. CB; Emma Rozek, soph. D; Maya Saad, jr. D

OTHER KEY RETURNEES: Sophia Peronis, jr. G.

KEY NEWCOMERS: Bryann Zawislak, fr. M; Kaylee Worrell, fr. M; Olivia Jansniewicz, soph. F.


NOTABLES/OUTLOOK/COACH’S QUOTE: Troy was somewhat of a young team last year and is again this season with only two returning seniors that started last season and a bevy of sophomores and freshmen.  The team outscored the opposition 34-20 last season and that was with All-State Dream Team honoree Lizzie Bultynck (Bowling Green) up top. This will not be a rebuilding year of any sort, and the Colts will be right in the thick of things in terms of the league race and will also challenge for a district. Troy opened the season 4-0-1 overall with impressive wins over Rochester Adams (2-1), Northville (4-2), Utica Eisenhower (2-1) and Birmingham Seaholm (5-0) with a draw with D-2 DeWitt (1-1) sprinkled into the mix. A 14-5 scoring edge so far this season is impressive and the Colts have played quality opponents to boot. That’s a good sign for a program that has made six Final four runs with three state titles and two state runners-up finishes in program history. Troy will contend in 2024 and has already climbed up into the top 10 of the D-1 rankings.

 

SCHOOL: Troy Athens

HEAD COACH: Jason Clark, first season

2023 OVERALL AND LEAGUE RECORD / FINISH: 17-3-2, 4-2-0 OAA Red Division (third, 12 points)

2023 STATE TOURNAMENT RESULTS: Def. Sterling Heights (8-0); def. Sterling Heights Stevenson (8-1); def. Utica Ford (2-0, district finals); lost in D-1 regional semifinals to New Baltimore Anchor Bay (4-3, 2OT, SO).

RETURNING STARTERS: Nichole Russell, sr. D (All-League, All-District); Hannah Dombrowski, sr. M (All-League, All-District); Madison Bloom, sr. D (All-League; signed with NCAA Division I Central Michigan University); Sydney McBride, sr. F/M (All-District; signed with NCAA Division II Tiffin University); Ava Weeks, sr. G (All-District); Lauren DeJonckheere, jr. F (All-League; All-State First Team; NCAA Division I recruit); Emily Mendrick, jr. M (All-District); Abby Waldron, soph. D (All-District)

OTHER KEY RETURNEES: Madigan Tennies, sr. D; Adison Witner, sr. F; Ashley Miller, jr. G; Lulu Thaqi, soph. F.

KEY NEWCOMERS: Alex Haggarty, sr. M (played last year with National GA)


NOTABLES/OUTLOOK/COACH’S QUOTE: Winners of four state titles and three state runner-up finishes in its illustrious history, Athens now has just its third head coach in program history with alum Jason Clark taking over back in February. Nothing will change now that the baton has been transferred. The Red Hawks will still contend for league and district titles and be capable of long tournament runs. Athens is already off to a 4-0-2 start through April 13, and that includes a 18-1 scoring edge, five shutouts and a top-five ranking in Division 1. The Red Hawks were state runners-up in 2021, regional finalists in 2022 and regional semifinalist in 2023, but have not won a state title since 2000. Could this be the year that Athens breaks that hex?
