(PERRYVILLE, Mo.) – While the start of last year’s softball season didn’t go the way the Perryville Pirates wanted, it ended with great achievement as the team captured its first district title since 2001. The Pirates went 6-13 in the regular season, but got hot at the right time, defeating Sikeston, Cape Notre Dame and Doniphan for the district championship. Pirates coach Dustin Wengert said the team gradually got better toward the end of last season.
