Blake Perry's prodigious offensive output was marked with a conference award this week as he was named Upper Midwest Athletic Conference offensive player of the year in postseason awards released on Wednesday, Nov. 9.

Perry, a senior, was first or second in the league in goals (15), game-winning goals (six) and points (34).

UWS had eight all-UMAC selections, including five first teamers and coach of the year Joe Mooney.

Perry was joined on the first team by junior forward Phillip Eriksen, sophomore midfielder Mackie Ringrose, sophomore defender Josh Bellamy and junior defender Alex Hanson.

Defender Harry Ambler and midfielder Andy Rowland were second-team picks, while goalkeeper Alex Paredes received honorable mention.


The Yellowjackets will play North Central (Ill.) in an NCAA Tournament match on Saturday.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
