Lady Panthers crowned state champs

The Liberty Lady Panthers softball team made history over the weekend. The Lady Panthers claimed the Class 4A State Championship Saturday in Austin, beating the Vernon Lady Lions 3-1. That came on the heels of Thursday’s 1-0 semifinal win over Beeville Jones. After giving up just one run in the state tournament, Liberty’s ninth-grade pitching ace, Kaci West, was named Most Valuable Player for the Class 4A tourney.  The Lady Panthers arrived back in town Saturday evening to a rousing welcome home. The team’s bus was greeted at the county line by the Liberty County Sheriff’s Department, which provided an escort. They were met at the Dayton city limits by members of Dayton PD, which joined in, and the Liberty Police Department continued the escort to the Vera Faye Daniel Pavilion at Liberty City Hall. The Liberty Fire Department had the streets lined with their vehicles near the pavilion. There, more than 200 Lady Panther fans were on-hand to cheer on the champions. Among those who said a brief word of congratulations were County Judge Jay Knight, Liberty City Council members Dianne Huddleston and Dennis Beasley, plus Liberty school board members Bruce Bell, Rachel Odell and Debbie Beasley. Then, Lady Panthers Head Coach Karen Slack addressed the crowd. The Liberty-Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce and several community members helped organize that celebration ceremony. Once more, the Liberty Lady Panthers are the Class 4A State Softball Champions. With only three seniors on the team, look for the Lady Panthers to be on the prowl again next year.
