It’s been nothing but smooth sailing this season for the 14-5 Liberty girls basketball team, but things got a little rocky just a week before the end of the season.
It began with a 53-45 loss to Mercer Island on Jan. 29, and continued with a 55-36 defeat at the hands of a determined Bellevue team Jan. 31. The Islanders and the Wolverines were both teams the Patriots beat earlier in the season
“Hopefully, we’ve got this rough stretch out of the way,” Liberty coach Curtis Terry said. “I’d rather get it out now than in the playoffs, when it’s do or die.”
