Liberal head soccer coach Lori Navarro announced Tuesday morning during the Sportsguys, she is formally resigning as head coach of the Redskins. Navarro says has considered resigning for the past several years due to the rigors of the job, but changed her mind each time and opted to come back. She says the difference this go around is she feels she has a very good coaching staff who can keep this program heading the right direction.
Navarro has been Liberal's only head soccer coach in the 15 years of the program. She is 203-61-13 and won 11 straight WAC titles until this year when a young Redskin team slumped to 2-6 in the WAC. Liberal has advanced to the past three state championship games including Saturday's 3-1 loss to
Bishop Miege in Topeka. Liberal won their only state championship in soccer in 2011 by beating Blue Valley. LHS has made it to 10 of the past 11 final fours in 5A. No other soccer program in the state has been that consistent.
