Liberty Blue Wins 18U Open Stars & Stripes

In their return to tournament competition, Liberty Blue dominated in the Star & Stripes tournament held in Chambersburg, PA. They played in the 18U Open division and rolled through the competition on Saturday, winning all three games by mercy rule. Sunday would be more of challenge as the team fought back from deficits in both the semi-final and championship games. The championship was decided after 8 innings, including two innings of ITB play.

It was a team effort, but special recognition goes to Abbey Lane who pitched a complete game in the semi-finals and came in as relief to pitch 7 1/3 innings in the championship game. Then, to cap it all off, with runners on 2nd and 3rd in the bottom of the 8th, she hit a walk-off triple for the win.  Congratulations to Abbey and the entire Liberty Blue team!

Blue Goes to the Beach Blast Showcase

Liberty Blue traveled south to Myrtle Beach, SC for the Beach Blast Showcase and their final event of the fall season. On Saturday the girls were lead by college coaches and played hard, going 2-1 in scrimmages against 14U & 16U teams. On Sunday, however, the team made sure they ended on a winning note, going 3-0 in single-elimination bracket play. The final was never in doubt as Liberty won 12-3.

This gives the team a 32-5-1 record for the fall season including two championships at the 16U Open level. They will take a break before starting up the summer season following the conclusion of high school play.
