Rise and Shine: Hannibal soccer has earned recognition across the state - and wants more

Riding a wave of success in 2012, Eric Hill and the Hannibal Pirates soccer team have earned enough respect around the state to garner a top-10 nod in the Class 2 rankings. Along the way to a 15-win season, the Pirates have used a mix of talent, chemistry, and patience in order to thrive. An already memorable season, one that includes the program's first-ever win over Helias and a strong showing at the Camdenton Tournament, the Pirates know they can climb even higher and are confident in their quest.
