West Michigan Girls Win Division IV Soccer Title

| |

The girls’ soccer team of Calvin Christian High School in Grandville, Mich., won its first Division IV state championship in school history, defeating its opponent 6-0 in the championship game.

The Squires, who finished the season with a record of 25-2-1, outscored the opposition in its seven state tournament games by a margin of 45-2.

“We had nine seniors who were really motivated and focused, and when you’ve got a core like that, it lends itself to a team atmosphere of focus,” Calvin Christian head coach Tim TerHaar said.

 Katie Klunder and Jenny Holsem each scored three goals in the championship game. Klunder tied a Michigan high school girls’ soccer record for most points in a season with 80 (54 goals and 26 assists).

“The girls enjoyed being with each other and playing with each other,” said TerHaar, a member of Fuller Avenue Christian Reformed Church in Grand Rapids, Mich.
