Brighton won every girls soccer championship that was available locally, capturing KLAA West, Lakes Conference, Association and district titles.

It wasn’t until the regional final at Portage Central against the eventual state champion that the Bulldogs’ season came to an end.

As a result, Brighton dominates the All-Livingston County team selected by the Livingston Daily Press & Argus. The Bulldogs have six of the 11 first-team picks, Hartland has four and Howell has one.

 

CAROLINE HALONEN

  • School: Hartland
  • Grade: Junior
  • Position: Midfielder
  • Achievements: Scored 11 goals to rank second on the team and had a team-high 11 assists while also having key defensive responsibilities. Made the All-KLAA team.
  • Coach Andrew Kartsounes: “Caroline was our defensive center mid and was a really strong player for us this year. She moved up from a defensive position last year as a sophomore and just kind of ran our midfield for us this year. She scored a lot of goals off assists from her sister and had a lot of assists to her sister on corner kicks. They were so connected on the field.”

 

JENNA HALONEN

  • School: Hartland
  • Grade: Senior
  • Position: Forward
  • Achievements: Led Hartland with 15 goals and was second with nine assists. Made the All-KLAA team. A four-year varsity player.
  • Coach Andrew Kartsounes: “Jenna was our leading scorer, even though she only really played the second half of the season as a forward. The last few years she played all over the field, anywhere from defense to forward. We wanted to get some more offense in the second half of the season. We moved her right up there and she scored the majority of her 15 goals in the last half. She was very important for the offensive resurgence we had in the second half of the season.”

 

 

KENNADY KUHLMAN

  • School: Hartland
  • Grade: Senior
  • Position: Midfielder
  • Achievements: Was a first-team all-county pick as a freshman, sophomore and senior (a team wasn’t picked last year). Scored two goals and three assists coming off of knee surgery. Had 29 goals and 19 assists in her career. Will play for Eastern Michigan University.
  • Coach Andrew Kartsounes: “We had to do some different things than she’s used to. Normally, she’s our top-scoring forward. This year we had to drop her in the center midfielder position where she could play more with the ball on her feet and provide leadership from there.”

 

ALLISON PARKER

  • School: Hartland
  • Grade: Senior
  • Position: Defender
  • Achievements: Had one assist this season playing exclusively a defensive role. A key reason why Hartland had 11 shutouts this season, including a 0-0 tie with state finalist Grand Blanc. An All-KLAA selection.
  • Coach Andrew Kartsounes: “She’s one of the reasons why toward the end of the season we were able to drop to three backs to kind of help our offense. She brought a lot of intelligence, skill and passion to our defensive play.”
