Today's Flames Minute: Thursday
Brought to you by Church Mutual Insurance, for this Thursday, January 16, 2020, I'm Nick Pierce.
The Liberty softball team is the favorite to win the ASUN Championship. The conference preseason poll was announced Wednesday and the Lady Flames received three of seven first-place votes. Also, three Lady Flames are on the preseason all conference squad: senior infielders Amber and Autumn Bishop and outfielder Madison Via.
Liberty opens the 2020 softball season February 7 against Kentucky in Clearwater, Fla.
And the Flames baseball season begins in less than a month. Liberty will begin the year on the road at Clemson. The Flames haven't visited the Tigers since 2014. Liberty won the ASUN Championship last year. This year's preseason poll has not yet been released.
And a doubleheader of Flames basketball is coming up this Saturday at the Vines Center. The Lady Flames will take on Lipscomb at 4 p.m. Liberty's men will play Lipscomb in the nightcap, in a rematch of last year's ASUN title game.
