    On Tuesday, August 21 the Liberty Minutemen made their case heard as to why they should remain in Region 3C rather than being moved into Region 3D, where the most recent VHSL realignment placed them. By a 22-0-2 vote Liberty will be placed back into Region 3C.

    “We were kind of blindsided by the whole situation,” Liberty Athletic Director Lori Mattson said.
