Grosse Pointe North Girls Soccer Team

In June 2023, Grosse Pointe North Varsity Girls Soccer Team claimed the Michigan High School Athletic Association (MHSAA) Division 2 Soccer State Championship title at Michigan State University with a final record of 10-7-7.

Since 1991 — the furthest back published results include team records — no girls soccer team had advanced to an MHSAA final with fewer than ten wins until Grosse Pointe North and Clarkston Everest Collegiate did this year. This season was also the first time the Lady Norsemen captured a state championship in the school’s history.
