The girls’ varsity golf team successfully defended their GAC North/Central Championship title at Wolf Hollow Golf Club in the 2021-22 season. The team completed the regular season with a record of 10-3, along with a 6-1 record in conference play. Kyndall Stubblefield, Madalyn Breckenridge, Sophie Chenot, Mollie Banstetter, and Layla Bane were all awarded medals in the GAC Championship.

Junior Kyndall Stubblefield, having the best 18-hole score of any player in the tournament, was declared the GAC North/Central Player of the Year. Stubblefield shot just 79 strokes with an exceptional par score of +8.

At districts, Stubblefield and Chenot both qualified to play at the state meet.

“Beyond proud of this group and their efforts,” Coach Jacob Cole said.

The Eagles are looking to only progress further next year and potentially win a third consecutive GAC Competition.

Liberty’s tennis team took first place in their conference and earned the title of North-Central Division Conference Champions on Sept. 28.

The team clinched all No. 1 seeds in the GAC other than two pairs of doubles who were No. 2 seeds. Both days the team medaled. Isabella Gamm and Kaylie Brockmann, Carly and Laney Torbit, Abbi Witzke and Riley Torbit, and Lief and Logan Richter all took first place in doubles. The following day, Isabella Gamm, Kaylie Brockmann, Laney Torbit, Abbi Wiztke, Riley Torbit, Abbi Kuhn, and Maddy Kuhn individually placed first overall.

The team finished with a 13-4 record.

Best finish that Coach Eldredge has experienced since Liberty opened,” Coach Teodoro Campos said.

Although the team didn’t go to State this year, the younger players are training hard in the offseason to hopefully achieve their goal next season.

The varsity cheerleading team won their fourth annual regional championship in a row on Oct 2. After coming off a state championship from the end of last season, they could not have started this year off stronger. Not only did they learn their winning routine in less than a week, but they won their first in person competition in two years.

“Being brave and competing in person for the first time in two years, working through so many hurdles thrown our way this week, and remaining a family through it all,” Coach Aly Sansoucie said.

The team looks forward to competing for the state title again this year and hope to make Liberty proud this upcoming spring, but for now the team is savoring the sweet taste of four-time regional champs.
