D4 Soccer Final: Squires Net First MHSAA Title
June 16, 2012
EAST LANSING – Grandville Calvin Christian senior Katie Klunder finished her high school career Saturday as one of the top scorers in state history.
And more importantly, as a champion.
Klunder scored three goals to give her 54 this season as the Squires won their first MHSAA title, 6-0 over Waterford Our Lady/Clarkston Everest at Michigan State University.
Klunder’s goals this spring tied her for fourth-most in the MHSAA record book. She also had an assist Saturday, and her 80 total points tied the record set by Hudsonville Unity Christian’s Laura Heyboer in 2008.
Senior Jenny Holsem scored Calvin Christian’s other three goals and also had an assist as her team launched 26 shots total.
The Squires (25-2-1), ranked No. 4 at the start of the tournament, were the highest-ranked team left by the Semifinal round.
Megan Luttinen had 10 saves for Waterford Our Lady/Clarkston Everest, which finished 18-1-2 and was ranked No. 6.
