Liberty: 3A or 2A?

Whether to be in the 2A or 3A sports division has caused an uproar at Liberty High School. Some see 2A as Liberty’s big chance to win, while others perceive 3A as home.
The main argument for remaining in 3A is Liberty has an opportunity to show that despite its size, it can win against larger schools.
“I honestly want to stay 3A. That’s where we’ve always been as long as I can remember,”
varsity football player Russell Boston said. “We can compete with any 3A team in the state. But we will come out and play our hardest no matter where we end up.”
The girls’ soccer team proved Liberty is capable of competing in 3A by winning a state championship, although it was the first time Liberty has gone to state in girls’ soccer since 2003.
The opposing argument is Liberty would be more likely to win games in 2A, with more teams going to state and a greater chance of people being individually recognized for their efforts.
Liberty students will have to wait on the verdict since the topic is still being discussed by school admins.
