Liberal at DC

Varsity boys finished with 2232 total pinfall. Lexton Batie finished first overall, highest game of 241, and a personal best series 652 . “Lexton told us he had a goal to finish 1st overall today. He was able to keep his mental game strong during all 3 games today. He has gotten over 600 a few times during practice but in competition has been a hurdle, so it great to see him get that done” Coach Potter on Lexton.
Girls Varsity: 2027 total pinfall. Frida Civis’s 206 was the team’s single game high. She  finished 4th overall, with a 494 series, missing medaling by 2 pins. “Frida has been very focus at trying to reach her goals this year, getting over a 200 game was one. Now she can use that as drive to continue towards her other goals she has as well,” said Coach Potter about Frida.
JV Boys: 1326 total pinfall. Reece Washburn lead the way with a 304 series. Coach Potter had to say, “Reece is such a positive athlete in our program, during practice and competition. He’s always low-key keeping up on his growth and striding at getting better,” said Coach Potter
JV girls: 1626 total pinfall. Rebecca Ruder finished 2nd with a 345 series. JV Girls earned all 13 WAC points. “Rebecca had a strong performance today. She had some ups and downs but she was able to maximize the positive moments today,”  Coach Potter had to say.
February 9th Liberal will travel to face Great Bend.
