LFSN students produce women's hockey, men's lax videos
February 6, 2019 | Lynchburg, Va.
Liberty University Digital Media and Journalism students and Liberty Flames Sports Network (LFSN) student workers Brhett Vickery and Kyle Vatt went behind the scenes, donning playing gear for a live practice and walk-on tryout with Liberty University's ACHA Division I women's hockey and MCLA Division I men's lacrosse teams, respectively, last semester.
The two segments were featured on a pilot episode of "FUSE," a student-produced Club Sports entertainment show.
"Our students are getting more opportunities to produce content outside of live game broadcasts," said Matthew Byrd, LFSN's director of live production. "We are excited to continue the relationship with the School of Communication and Digital Content by helping provide more opportunities for students to gain real-world experience."
Vatt's men's lacrosse tryout segment was produced by Jason Johnson, who like Vickery, graduated in December. Vickery's practice with the Lady Flames DI hockey team, in which she shadowed senior forward Lauren McDonald, was produced by Jacob Crossman.
Liberty's women's hockey team, ranked second in the nation, is off this weekend before hosting top-ranked Adrian next Friday at 10:15 p.m. and Saturday at 1:30 p.m. in the LaHaye Ice Center, a rematch of the 2018 ACHA DI National Championship game won by the Lady Flames.
The Flames' men's lacrosse team is ranked sixth in the MCLA DI Preseason Coaches' Poll and making final preparations for hosting Central Florida in next Saturday's 3 p.m. season opener at the Liberty Lacrosse Fields.
