SIKESTON -- The 2011 All-State soccer teams were recently announced in recognition of the 2011 high school soccer season and the Sikeston Lady Bulldogs have one representative.

Keyonna Blissett was a Class 2 honorable mention selection after aiding the Lady Bulldogs to a 10-9 regular season finish.

The junior forward always drew the opposition's attention as her lightening quick speed could have her breaking away for a goal at any point during a match. Still the junior managed 11 goals for the Lady Bulldogs.

Blissett was an all-state second team selection just a year ago while leading Sikeston in goals scored.

She was also named the 2010 Co-Offensive Player of the Year in the Class 2 Southeast Region while being named to the All-Region team. She was also a member of the SEMO All-Conference first team her sophomore year.

A full list of all-state selections in each of the three classes can be found on the scoreboard on page 7.
