So does this team have the resume to get them to Nationals again this year? I'm guessing the solid showing last year would bode well for selection this year if you compete well enough at regionals.

Our 34th in the country ranking was a combination of undergrad and grad school teams. Among just undergrad teams, Liberty finished tied for 14th in the country (with UCLA & South Carolina). That's our best national ranking ever.

Liberty's novice team traveled to Richmond on Saturday to complete in the VCU Novice Tournament and scored 4 wins:

LU over Reynolds CC, 400-40
LU over Longwood, 330-40
LU over VCU, 280-130
LU-A over LU-B, 90-70

We were also leading at the half against both Duke and Wake Forest, but lost two close matches to them. Longwood's coach told me that ALL their varsity team graduated last year, so their novice team will be their varsity team at the Big South Tournament in January. That's great news for Liberty, since Longwood is usually our toughest competition in conference.
