12U Liberty had a great day volunteering at the Loudoun County Animal Shelter. They helped organize food, gather and distributed donations, made toys for puppies, helped with cleaning and painted holiday themes on the windows. After all their hard work they went over to Antony’s in Purcellville for a little fun, food & secret Santa.
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.
Loudoun Liberty Black 16U finished their fall season as champions, winning the Crown Trophy Fall Challenge 16B Gold Bracket. The girls braved the cold and a brutal schedule to go 5-0 over the weekend. The team only gave up 8 runs the entire weekend, outscoring their competition 33-8. They capped the weekend off winning the championship game 9-0. The entire team played well all weekend, getting great hitting, pitching and defense in every game.
Congratulations girls! Great way to finish a fantastic season.
10U Liberty headed south to Manassas where they competed in the Military Appreciation tournament. The team battled suddenly cooler temps along with the competition. The team was a juggernaut, going 6-0 and outscoring opponents 92-16. They took the championship in a dominant 18-2 win. Congratulations and what a great way to end the fall season!
Liberty 12U Black traveled back down to Richmond to compete in the Halloween Cup and received the award for Best Costume Team. Fortunately (or unfortunately), the Globo Gym Purple Cobras were nowhere to be seen. Congratulations girls, and thank you Chuck Norris!
Every October in Loudoun County, Liberty Blue participates in the annual Breast Cancer Awareness tournament and this year was no different. Something else that was no different was the the result. For the third year in a row the team walked away with the championship trophy. What makes this achievement all the more impressive is that the three championships have come in three different age brackets: 12U Open in 2017, 14U Open in 2018 and 16U Open this year. Blue went a perfect 3-0 on Saturday to earn a first round bye on Sunday and left no doubt on their way to the championship with a decisive 12-4 victory in the semi-finals. In the finals, they jumped out to a 5-1 lead in the first inning and never looked back, eventually winning 10-3. Congratulations on another great win!
Liberty White pulled off another 1st round bracket win on Sunday to earn a tie for 3rd place out of 8 teams. Battling through injuries and players that were out this weekend, the team put up some tough battles with the opposition thanks to the addition of a few guest players and finished 1-2-1 on the weekend. The team is off to try their luck at B level for the remainder of the year.
