SIKESTON -- A pair of Sikeston Bulldogs made the cut this past week when the All-Region soccer team was announced.

Josh Hampton and Paul Hughes, both seniors, were selected as part of the team, which is compiled from schools in the Southeast region and includes districts 1-4.

There are 16 regions in all.

Along with making the team, Hampton was also selected as the Goalkeeper of the Year in the region.

Hampton accumulated 14 shutouts for the Bulldogs his senior year which is a new school record for the Sikeston soccer team.

Hughes made the squad as a defender on a year where Sikeston finished 19-5 and remained perfect in the SEMO Conference, which led to their first conference title in school history.

By making the all-region team, both players improve their chances at being select all-state.
