WMU-bound Madison Salzenstein named Ms. Soccer days after leading Country Day to state title

Between graduating high school on Friday and leading her Detroit Country Day girls soccer team to a state championship on Saturday, the past week has been a whirlwind for Madison Salzenstein. When the Country Day senior learned that she was the Michigan High School Soccer Coaches Assocation’s pick for the 2021 Ms. Soccer award, Salzenstein’s week went from unforgettable to unreal. That growth was apparent during the 2021 state championship game, when she scored twice in Country Day’s 3-0 win over Boyne City. “ECNL (Elite Clubs National League) and high school and everything is one level, but college is a completely different level. “So, she’s absolutely ready to play at the college level.”More high school soccer coverageSee Michigan’s 2021 girls high school soccer all-state teamsTop 5 performances from Michigan’s 2021 girls high school soccer state finalsOur 25 favorite photo moments from the 2021 MHSAA girls soccer championshipsFrom game-time decision to game-winning goal, Julia Pietila played tough in Hartland soccer state title winHartland finishes chances, defeats Troy Athens for first girls soccer state titleWatch North Muskegon celebrate first state soccer title, see highlights and reactionNorth Muskegon’s ‘all in’ mantra leads to dominant finals performance, first state soccer titleNorth Muskegon keeper has seen many state finals football games; now she gets to vie for titleFreshman helps Bloomfield Hills Marian add state title to girls soccer dynastyWMU-bound Madison Salzenstein’s 2 goals lead Country Day to girls soccer state title
