“Kate Bruckschen was a team co-captain as well as a returning starter from last year’s statebound team. Week after week Bruckschen was assigned to mark the opposing team’s best offensive player,” said Tiger head coach David Kisiolek.

“Bruckschen is fast and physical with the skills to play offense or defense. She was our fourthleading scorer even though she played defense and was a team leader both on and off the field.”

Bru ck s ch en scored five goals for the overall season. She is one of four unanimous first-team picks.

Senior midfielder Kianna Bahr of Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah earned secondteam honors.

“Kianna Bahr is one of those players that is in the right place all the time. She sees the field and moves to where the play is trying to be developed by the opponent,” said EL-G head coach Kevin Ruh.

“She played a defensive mid position to start the game but moved as the game developed. She often saw where we were a little soft and moved slightly to give a little more support. Kianna is a leader on and off the field.

“In practice she is one that steps to the front and demonstrates the drills we are doing. She spends time showing others how to trap, pass and shoot the ball with power. Opposing teams would play away from where she was on the field understanding that she was a force on the field,” said Ruh.

Bahr contributed two goals which tied for the Resorter team lead.

The Tigers’ other all-league picks are fresh- man midfielders Mackenzie Holzwart and Leah Parnitzke and senior defender Lizzy Betke who are all honorable mention.

“Holzwart led our team in both goals scored [nine] as well as assists [six]. She is a talented multi-sport athlete with the attributes that every coach looks for: athletic, determined and unselfish,” said Kisiolek.

“It is extremely rare to find a freshman that can step in and assume the role of field general, and Parnitzke did just that for us this year.

“She began the season as an outside midfielder but by the second game she was moved to center midfield where she remained for the remainder of the season. She led by example and displayed an uncanny sense for being in the right place at the right time,” the Tiger coach noted.

Parnitzke was

HG’s secondleading scorer with eight goals.

“Betke was a team co-captain and a returning starter from last year’s state-bound team. She played center back for the better part of the year. She was a tireless worker and someone always respected by teammates and opponents alike.

“Betke has the skill set to play anywhere on the soccer field but is one of those players that will do whatever it takes to make the team better. A graduating senior, Betke will be sorely missed next year,” Kisiolek said.

Senior forward Olivia Meerdink of Oostburg was named the BEC’s Offensive Player of the Year. Oostburg senior defender Sierra Thein is the league’s Defensive Player of the Year.

Meerdink, Thein and Kohler junior defender/ midfielder Cecelia Zielke are the other unanimous first-team players. Meerdink and Cedar Grove-Belgium senior forward Jessica Rose are on the first team for the second straight year.
