Liberty sophomore Hunter Thomas, one of the Flames' top returning players, prepares to unleash a drive during practice.

In advance of this weekend's annual Flamethrower Invitational disc golf tournament, Liberty University's annual qualifier for the National Collegiate Disc Golf (NCDG) championships in North Augusta, S.C., in early April, Club Sports Video Coordinator Patrick Strawn interviewed Flames Head Coach Steve Bowman and a few returning players for this preview.

Starting Saturday at 9 a.m., the Flames will tee off against teams from North Carolina, NC State, and Elizabethtown, at the 20-hole course located next to the Hydaway Outdoor Recreation Center. Play will continue Sunday on Liberty's 20-hole East Campus course.

With a solid core of returning players and several promising newcomers, both Liberty and NC State have already earned automatic bids to nationals, based on their seventh- and third-place finishes last spring, so it may come down to UNC and Elizabethtown vying for the two qualifying berths.
