Although the Boonville Lady Pirates soccer team had its season come to an end almost two weeks ago in the district tournament in Pleasant Hill, the accolades continue to roll in for certain select players.
While putting nine players on the NCMC All-Conference Team for the 2017 season, the Lady Pirates also had six named to the Class 2 District 11 Team and four selected to the Class 2 Region 3 Team.

While going undefeated in the NCMC for the 2017 season, former Boonville coach Tim Brown said the conference overall was maybe a bit down this past season, but Hannibal was still very good, and Kirksville and Marshall both had winning seasons with fairly tough schedules. “We just had all the right pieces this year,” Brown said. “Two years ago, we went undefeated in the NCMC, but the matches were much closer. This year, we outscored the other, much larger NCMC Schools 91-1, including seven 10-0 shutouts.”
