Detroit Inks Seven Student-Athletes for 2013

Jenna Payne (Lansing, Mich. / Holt H.S.)
Payne has put up some huge offensive numbers through her first three years at Holt High School. She set a team record with 71 goals in a single-season as a junior in 2011. Her career-high for goals in a game is seven as she reached that mark against Salem High School. Through 38 career games, Payne has scored 91 goals and tallied 38 assists. Payne has earned a varsity letter during each season with the Rams under the guidance of Head Coach Paul Carr, and has also been named CAAC All-Conference during those years. Payne led her team in goals, assists, and ground balls as a sophomore and matched that effort as a junior while being named team captain. Her successful junior season allowed her to be named All-State honorable mention in 2011. Off the field, Payne is involved with tutoring, honors choir, and is also a member of the National Honor Society.

"Jenna is very talented player," Maness added. "We will be looking for her to be a consistent scoring threat on the offensive side of the field."

Michaela Schwartz (Hugo, Minn. / Centennial Senior H.S.)
Schwartz has been a part of three Northwest Suburban Conference Championship teams while playing for Gary Nelson at Centennial Senior High School. Schwartz scored 11 goals while adding seven assists as a freshman and steadily improved the next season by scoring 19 goals while tallying seven assists. As a team captain in 2011, Schwartz put together a breakout year with 40 goals, 23 assists, and 32 ground balls. Her outstanding play allowed her to be named All-Conference and honorable mention All-State. Off the field Schwartz is a member of the National Honor Society.

"Michaela has a lot of experience in the midfield," Maness said. "She will be a big help with transitioning the ball and supporting the offense."
