Coach Tom McClure’s comments:
“It was good to get some wins under our belt. We played some really tough teams at the beginning of the season and we had 2 players out and a few others banged up. We struggled going down in the speed of pitches. Girls adjusted and rolled with some of the changes and picked up the wins. Now we play Garden next week with Tuesday single and Thursday Double.”
Liberal is 2-6 and plays at Garden City for a single game on Tuesday.
