Altamirano was one of five Pirates to earn all-league honors. C.J. Nemeroff, Cole Lewis, Kendric Perry and goalkeeper Joan Carrillo joined Altamirano on the all-SAC squad.

Pacey Brooks, a defender for Purnell Swett, was the lone representative for the Rams.

Pinecrest led the way with seven selections, including co-player of the year Haden Smith.

Each of Robeson County’s all-conference selections were named to the all-region squad.
