Liberal head girls basketball coach Carter Kruger was not pleased at halftime. He had just watched his Lady Redskins commit 15 turnovers in a sub par 16 minutes which was a last place Garden City team take a 26-16 lead into halftime. Kruger used his bench to begin the second half going with Samantha Terrazas, Megan Larkin, Riley Weaver, Sarah Arriaga, and one starter Ali Lucero to begin the second half. They brought the GCHS lead to six and did not allow Garden to score. That paved the way to Liberal’s 44-41 comeback win over the visiting Lady Buffs on Senior Night in the Big House. The Lady Skins have assured themselves of a winning season for the first time since 2010.
LHS trailed 13-10 after one and 26-16 at halftime. Liberal cut the Lady Buff lead to 31-30 after three quarters. Liberal led by six 39-33 with 2:28 to play and led 41-36 but Garden City kept making plays. Ali Lucero scored 19 and Diamond Bailey scored 11.
