Koenig, the Player of the Year in the East Central Conference, was selected to the all-state second team. She was an All-ECC first-team pick the past two years and was a unanimous choice this past season.

Schmitz, an all-state honorable mention selection, was named the Big East Conference’s Offensive Player of the Year. She was a unanimous All-BEC firstteam player the past two seasons.

“Kaylee, a four-year starter, played as one of our three central midfielders. Positioned as our defensive midfielder, she’s an offensive facilitator,” said PHS head coach Brad Feick.

Her passing and movement allowed her teammates to excel.”

Koenig scored 11 goals and had eight assists for a total of 30 points (two points per goal and one per assist).

Schmitz had an impressive season on offense with 55 goals and 12 assists for a total of 122 points. Her goal total is ranked fourth all-time in state girls soccer history, according to EL-G head coach Kevin Ruh. Schmitz finished her career with an amazing 147 goals which puts her third all-time in the state, said Ruh.

“Camrie had an outstanding year. She is the most dynamic player in the conference and has the ability to change the flow of the game on her own,” said Ruh.

“She does not have an off switch. She brings everything she has to every game and leaves it on the field.

“She became a complete player this year by helping set up others and not feel the need to do everything. She actually slowed her game down a little and set up defenders rather than simply attack attack, attack,” said Ruh.

“Helping teammates and pushing herself to do everything she could for the team is what drove Camrie this year. To be the best player in the conference was the result.”

Schmitz and Koenig played in the WSCA Masonic All-Star game July 22 at UW-Whitewater.

Both players were on the Gold team which lost to the Blue squad, 3-2.

Koenig and Schmitz will continue their soccer careers at UWWhitewater and Ripon College, respectively.

Megan White, the Winneconne head coach, was named the WSCA’s girls soccer Coach of the Year. White guided the Wolves to a runnerup finish in the Division 3 state tournament this past season. Winneconne shared the ECC championship with Plymouth this year.
