After 3 sudden death innings in the championship game, 10U fell short and finished 2nd in the Memorial Day NIT.
The Liberty 12U Blue battled the weather and top notch opponents to take 3rd place out of a field of 42 teams from eight states in the three-day Memorial Day Madness Tournament.
What was supposed to be a three game opening round on Saturday turned into a single game after rain forced the suspension of Game 2 with Liberty up 4-0 in the top of the 4th inning and one out away from a regulation game. On Sunday, all three games were completed including the second game which was played in a steady downpour at times. Despite the abbreviated schedule Liberty managed to make the top 16 and the Gold Bracket Championship round. There they won two games before falling in the semi-finals 6-4. Great job under trying conditions!
As many players wrap up their high schools seasons, the 16U Loudoun Liberty are looking forward to another successful year.
The Liberty Blue 12U took the Runners-Up trophy in the 2018 May Madness tournament, held in Central Maryland this past weekend. The team went 5-1 while outscoring opponents 49-6. In three of the games Liberty pitchers only gave up one hit. Great job ladies!
