Jessica Gooch and Kaleb Chipelewski Selected As November Student-Athletes of the Month

Marquette Senior High School, along with Superiorland Kiwanis, are proud to announce that Jessica Gooch (volleyball) and Kaleb Chipelewski (boys soccer) have been named as the Student-Athletes of the Month for November 2023.

Jessica Gooch is a member of the Class of 2024 at MSHS and has just completed her senior season as captain of the MSHS Varsity Volleyball team.

In two years of experience as a middle blocker, Jessica has certainly left her mark on the MSHS Volleyball program. This season, Jessica helped lead the team to a 21-13-2 overall record as well as a 6-2 mark in the Great Northern Conference (GNC) that included a 2nd place finish at the Marquette Invite (9/23/23) and Silver Division Championship at the Bay City Mitten Bay Classic (9/9/23). On the year, Jessica was the team leader in blocks (60) and hitting consistency (.258 attack percentage) while being second on the team in kills (151).

Jessica’s high-level performance during her junior and senior seasons earned her All-GNC First Team and All-Region honors from the Michigan Interscholastic Volleyball Coaches Association during each of those campaigns. She was also named as the team’s Most Improved Player during the 2022 season.

Jessica is a two-sport varsity student-athlete and is looking forward to her third year as a member of the MSHS Varsity Girls Soccer team this spring. In the classroom, she owns a 3.26 cumulative GPA and has been a regular fixture on the honor roll.

Upon graduating from MSHS, Jessica plans on attending Northern Michigan University beginning in Fall 2024 to pursue a degree in Sports Science and Athletic Training.

Kaleb Chipelewski is a junior at MSHS and was a member of this year’s MSHS Varsity Boys Soccer team.

The 2023 boys soccer season saw Kaleb assume a veteran leadership role as it marked his third as a member of the varsity team. After claiming U.P. Championships as a freshman and sophomore, both he and the team were eager to take the program to new heights with MHSAA postseason eligibility being restored for the 2023 soccer season.

That goal was accomplished after the team turned in an overall record of 13-5 on the season, which included capturing a 2023 MHSAA Division 2 District title after defeating Petoskey in a thrilling 11-round shootout. On the year, Kaleb accumulated 21 goals (6th in state), 9 assists (16th in state) for 51 points (8th in state). Kaleb’s play saw him recognized by the Michigan High School Soccer Coaches Association (MIHSSCA) with All-State Honorable Mention, All-Region and All-District team accolades.

In addition to soccer, Kaleb has been a two-year member of both the boys basketball and boys golf programs. During the 2023 boys golf season, Kaleb placed 2nd at the Great Northern Conference Championships while also finishing 4th at the MHSAA U.P. Golf Finals.

In the classroom, Kaleb owns a 4.08 cumulative GPA to put him as a three-year inclusion on the honor roll and member of the National Honor Society. He also serves as a junior class representative on the MSHS Student Council and member of the MSHS Newspaper Club.

Varsity Boys Soccer Falls To Fruitport In Tightly Contested MHSAA Regional Semifinal, 2-0

Varsity Boys Soccer Falls To Fruitport In Tightly Contested MHSAA Regional Semifinal, 2-0

Varsity Boys Soccer (13-6)

MHSAA Division 2 Regional Semifinal – Marquette 0, Fruitport 2

On Tuesday evening, the MSHS Varsity Boys Soccer team took on Fruitport in an MHSAA Division 2 Regional Semifinal contest that was hosted by Gaylord High School.

The two teams battled to a scoreless tie at the end of 40:00 minutes of first half action.  Roughly three minutes into the second half of play, lightning in the area forced play to be delayed for roughly 90 minutes.

Once play resumed, the teams continued the tightly contested match with both teams displaying quality performances on the pitch.  Marquette’s defensive back line of Hunter Sandstrom, Indigo Catalano and Easton Zivnoska held strong throughout the game to counter the speed and skill of Fruitport’s forwards.

Fruitport was able to take a 1-0 lead with 11:00 to go in the game and added a second tally shortly afterwards for the 2-0 decision.

  • First Half Goal Summary:  No Goals Scored
  • Second Half Goal Summary:  Fruitport – Jorge Burgos-Yack (MSHS – 0; FHS – 1);  Fruitport – Ryder Merkins (MSHS – 0; FHS – 2)

From MSHS Varsity Boys Soccer Head Coach Dan Salmon:

  • “Our game plan was working and we felt good right up until the lightning delay. We were playing a fast paced, heavy press attack which was starting to give us offensive chances. Once the game restarted, we just couldn’t get back to where we were. This was another one of those games that was unprecedented, start to finish was almost 4 hours after our nearly 3 hour game in the district championship on Saturday.”

Varsity Boys Soccer (13-5)

MHSAA Division 2 District Championship – Marquette 1, Petoskey 1 (Marquette wins shootout, 8-7)

On Saturday afternoon, the MSHS Varsity Boys Soccer team continued their postseason run when they hosted Petoskey in the MHSAA Division 2 District Championship in front of a raucous crowd at the Kaufman Sports Complex.

Marquette got on the scoresheet early when Ethan Sandstrom found the back of the net in the second-minute of the contest off of an Easton Zivnoska pass.  MSHS held the 1-0 advantage

Shortly into the second half, Petoskey leveled the game when Finnley Yurek scored a goal that was assisted by Daniel Howard.  With five-minutes remaining in regulation, Petoskey received a penalty kick after a foul in the box but were denied by MSHS goalkeeper Edan Hautamaki, who had 10 saves in regulation.  With the game still deadlocked at 1-1 after 80:00 of play, the teams would need extra time to determine a winner.

Petoskey and Marquette then battled through two 10-minute overtime periods before shootout procedures commenced.  With the match still equal at 3-3 after the first five rounds of the shootout, teams then alternated shooters in a sudden-death format until a victor could be declared.  After Hautamaki stopped his fourth kick of the shootout in the 11th round, Ben Wilson then calmly slid a shot past the Petoskey keeper for an 8-7 shootout win that earned Marquette the 2023 MHSAA District Championship.

  • First Half Goal Summary:   Marquette – Ethan Sandstrom from Easton Zivnoska (MSHS – 1; PHS – 0)
