Lady Devils’ stellar season comes to end

The Liberty Lady Devils 10-and-under softball team saw its season come to a close last week as it finished just shy of an all-star championship against Iva. The Lady Devils, coached by Jody Booth, Scott Moore, Brian Swafford and Tia Swafford, went 13-0 during the regular season before moving on to all-star competition. Liberty opened all-star play with a 7-3 win over Seneca on June 16. The Lady Devils continued to show the winning pedigree they had shown all season when they took on Central/Clemson. Liberty took a 6-5 win in nailbiting fashion before moving on to the championship game on June 26. The team was escorted by friends, family and most importantly, the Liberty Police Department as it headed to Crescent High School for the championship game. The Lady Devils fought a hard fight, coming up short 3-0, but still received runner-up honors in the 10-and-under Dixie Angels division of the tournament.
