(PERRYVILLE, Mo.) – When the Perryville Pirates boys soccer team lost key players from last year’s group, midfielder Austin Welk stepped up as the team’s leader in the attack and earned himself a spot on the Regional Radio Dream Team. Welk finished with 16 goals and 12 assists and earned first-team all-conference honors. Welk said he tried to do whatever he could to help his squad this year.

But Welk said the support came from a lot of other players as well.

After a 13-11 overall record for the team this season, Welk said he still has unfinished business left for his senior year.
