All-State Soccer

North County senior Grant Strauser (10) and Fredericktown senior Grant Shankle (23) have received all-state honorable mention in their respective classes from the Missouri State High School Soccer Coaches Association.

Grant Strauser produced 18 goals and eight assists during the regular season as a top offensive threat for the North County boys soccer program.

His versatility was on full display after being moved to a sweeper role during the postseason as the Raiders beat Farmington and Cape Central for their fifth district title in six years.

The Raiders finished 15-8 overall after falling in the state sectional round to Hillsboro, an opponent they previously defeated.

Fredericktown competed in a tough Class 2 district, and its star player likewise picked up all-state honorable mention.

Senior forward Grant Shankle was recognized after scoring in bunches for the Blackcats. He netted all six of his team’s goals in a road victory at Festus, and had another hat trick against St. Pius.
