With the inaugural Liberty lacrosse season in the books, head coach Regan Denham sat down with Nick Pierce recently to discuss the program's first season and shed some light on its future.
Among the topics discussed include:

- Midfielder Sierra Clearwater's NLC Tournament performance

- Challenges the team overcame in its first year

- Incoming additions to next year's roster

The Lady Flames finished the season with a 1-13 record overall and a 1-5 posting in the National Lacrosse Conference (NLC). Liberty's lone win occurred on March 6, as the team rallied to force conference foe Howard into overtime, edging the Bison, 17-16, in the extra period.

Highlights and Notes from Liberty's Inaugural Lacrosse Season
- Attacker Kristin Crowley concluded the Liberty lacrosse's first season as the program's leading scorer with a total of 27 goals. The Colorado Springs, Colo., native led the team in six other statistical categories – total points (31), assists (co-leader with four), draw controls (32), shots (57), shot percentage (.474) and shots-on-goal (47).

- After finishing the the regular season with nine goals, midfielder Sierra Clearwater upped the ante in NLC Tournament, racking up seven goals in Liberty's two postseason contests. The sophomore went out on top this past Saturday, posting a five-goal performance in Liberty's final contest against Howard while earning a spot on the NLC All-Tournament team.

- Clearwater's showing against the Bison ties her with teammates Kristin Crowley and Lauren See for the most goals in a single game by a Liberty player. Crowley and See each scored five goals against Howard in the Lady Flames regular season meeting with the Bison. Crowley accomplished the feat a second time, netting five goals at Osborne Stadium against Central Connecticut State on March 26.

- Five Lady Flames received regular season honors this year. Defender Cammille Little headlined the group, as she was voted second team all-conference, finishing the regular season with 17 ground balls and eight caused turnovers. Four other players were voted to the NLC Academic All-League team - Amanda Hornick (3.77 GPA), Mary Huff (3.94 GPA), Rebekah Luetters (3.52 GPA) and Chloe McIntosh (3.68 GPA).
