(PERRYVILLE, Mo.) – After leading the Perryville Pirates girls soccer team to a 19-5 season, coach Jerry Fulton was voted by area coaches as the Girls Soccer Co-Coach of the Year, sharing the award with Mike Hutchison of Windsor. This year, Fulton led a special team that also featured two-time Dream Teamer Kirstin Jannin and Dream Team Player of the Year Leah Buerck. Fulton said this season will be memorable because of the records the team set.

Fulton said he could see the talent of the team shaping up before the season started.

The Pirates graduated seven seniors from this year’s team but will return their top two goal-scorers next season.
