“This was a really great year for us and we got a lot of experience reaching the second round of the playoffs,” Liberty Common coach Wade Torgeson said. “Going toe-to-toe with the defending state runner-up was great, but we still have a lot of work to do.”

Liberty Common will lose five seniors to graduation, but returns standout forward Liz Yeh.
