    Just when it looked like the Liberty High School softball team had run out of gas, the girls reminded everyone of the strength and grit they have—enough to win Liberty’s first ever regional championship.
        

    “We’ve had so many come-from-behind type games, nothing like quite to this extent, but they’ve been that type of team this year,” said Coach Mike Thompson.

    Hugs and cheers filled the Jefferson Forest sideline following at 2-1 victory over Blacksburg to capture the 4D Girls Soccer Regional Championship.

     

    The body language of the Lady Cavaliers remained poised and controlled. As great as a regional championship is they know it is merely a stepping-stone on their quest to repeat as 4A State Champions.
