    What a wonderful day it is to be a Liberty Panther!

    Last night your Junior High Liberty Panthers took to the field against the West Orange Stark Mustangs.

    The 7/8 grade combined B team took to the field first and played a awesome game which would end in a tie 8-8. The players of the game would go to Caleb Chandler who had some awesome defensive plays and Hammed Quintanilla who scored the teams only touchdown!

    The 7th grade A team would follow and play a pretty close game with the mustangs in the first half only being down 14-6, but after halftime the wheels would fall off as the 7th grade A team would lose 36-6.

    To wrap up the night your undefeated 8th grade Liberty Panthers would take the field against the undefeated West Orange Stark Mustangs. Last year the Mustangs defeated the Panthers 42-0 but boy would the tables turn this year! The panthers would receive the ball first and drive the ball right down the field ending the 7 minute and 40 second drive with a touchdown from QB Austin Walker. The panthers would then hold the Mustangs on 4th down and get the ball back and strike again on a Mason Goudeau 25 yard touchdown. Johnny Harris- Hines would convert on the extra point attempt putting the panthers up 14-0. The panthers hard hitting defense lead by William Waldrip, Cody Collier, Austin Walker, Ernest Brooks, Landon Melonson, Johnny Harris- Hines, Jack Strahan, Titus Bell, Johnny Hancock, Mason Goudeau, and Kade Nolan would leave the Mustangs scratching their heads all night on how to get positive yards. Your Liberty Panthers would go on to defeat the Mustangs 20-8 to remain undefeated and become the 2017 District Champs. This is an outstanding accomplishment in itself not to mention that this has not happen at the junior high level in over 17 years! The player of the game goes to the ENTIRE 8th grade A football team.. Outstanding job guys, your school your community and your coaches are so proud of you.

    The LMS A teams made quite a statement this weekend at the Tarkington Middle School Volleyball Tournament The 7th grade went 3-1 on Saturday and brought home 3rd place trophy, while the 8th grade went 2-1 and clinched 2nd!

    The 7th grade A team started the day out early, with an 8:00 game against a very talented Bridge City team. Our girls battled, but missed serves and defensive errors got the best of the Panthers and they fell short 25-15 and 25-21. The girls would now have to work their way up the bracket in order to bring home the 3rd place plaque.
    Keifer Crossing, a New Caney Middle School, was the next opponent the girls would face. The Panthers came out strong and with the help of Reese Evans and her 19 total points off of serves, the Ladies blew past Keifer Crossing with scores of 25-14 and 25-7.
    The third game the Lady Panthers played, was against Moorehead, a middle school out of Conroe. Knowing that a win over Conroe would put the girls in place to play for the 3rd place plaque, the ladies came together and played very aggressive volleyball. The serving game was again, strong for the Lady Panthers with, Reese Evans and Morgan Vaughn, standing out at the service line with 24 total points for the Panthers. The Panthers beat Moorehead with scores of 25-15 and 25-12 and would immediately play Diboll for 3rd place.
    An exciting and tough matchup for the Lady Panthers, the girls left everything on the court and came out on top in two, clinching the third place title, with the scores of 25-23 and 26-24.

    The 8th grade A team faced Moorehead, in their first match of the day. It was a tough battle of 3 games, but the Panthers overcame the opponent with the scores of 20-25, 17-25 and 15-8.
    The next game would be against Keifer Crossing, who they would beat 25-11 and 25-22. Coach McAdams was very impressed with her team and said it was the best the team had played all season. They worked together and communicated well. Emalee Villarreal, was outstanding on defense while, Adrienne Trahan, was outstanding on offense.
    This win would put the team into the Championship game against District rivals, the Tarkington Longhorns. The first match of the game was a close one, but Liberty would come up short with a 25-17 loss. The second match did not go as planned. Miscommunication and defensive errors would keep the girls from clinching the 1st place title. The girls finished 2nd place in a very competitive tournament.

    Overall, LMS had a very successful weekend of volleyball. Congratulations to all of these ladies. The Lady Panthers will play the Huffman Falcons on Monday October 16th, in Huffman. Please come out and support these ladies in what is expected to be a very good game!
