The Liberty High School boys basketball team traveled to sunny San Diego during winter break to compete in the annual Surf ‘N Slam high school basketball tournament.

The Patriots went 1-2 in the three-day competition, good for fifth place in its eight-team bracket featuring schools from Washington, California and Utah.

Liberty began the tournament with a 74-41 loss to Copper Hills, of Utah, Dec. 28. The team bounced back the next day, though, with a convincing 74-18 win over Yosemite, of California.

Senior Kellen Birdsall, who was also named to the all-tournament team, was the player of the game for Liberty’s only win.

The Patriots wrapped up the tournament with a 50-42 loss to California high school Casa Roble.
