The Liberty Eagles JV softball team had a rough beginning to their season. But they learned from their mistakes and finished it off great, with a final record of 10-8-1.

It all started when they faced Washington for the second time (at home). The first time, Washington barely beat Liberty by 11-10. The second time around, they ended up tied 17-17.

But what was special about this game was the entire time teammates we’re screaming and cheering for each other and pushing each other to the limits. 

“Yeah I remember that, we were all screaming so loud that we all got dizzy and had headaches and no voices the next day,” said freshman right fielder Nora Foeller.

It was all uphill from there. During the final home game, the Eagles beat St. Charles West, 18-1. After that, they beat Timberland 14-8, which was the first time JV beat Timberland. The Eagles were are on a winning streak, as they absolutely dominated their 22-5 win against Hazelwood West. At their final game against Francis Howell North, the Eagles defeated them, 15-4. 

Coach Hellman says that the players all progressed throughout the season and just got better and better. He “had a lot of fun coaching the girls this year.”

“I was really lucky to have the group that I had, they meshed really well. I think about day three is whenever I really felt the chemistry really took off, it was a blast,” Coach Hellman said.
