Today's Flames Minute: Thursday
This is your Liberty Flames Minute! Brought to you by Church Mutual Insurance, for this Thursday, March 26, 2020, I'm Nick Pierce.
Despite the athletic calendar being cut short because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Liberty Athletics enjoyed much success in the 2019-20 season. Recently, Liberty Athletics Director Ian McCaw was asked about the highlights of the past year.
"No doubt, one of our best years. We adopted the ‘Year of the Flames' and certainly great success. You go back to the fall, our inaugural FBS football season reaching a bowl game and winning that bowl game – the Cure Bowl and an 8-5 season, obviously tremendous success under Coach Freeze in his first year.
We won the men's and women's indoor championships in track and field, the CCSA Championship with our swimming and diving program and of course men's basketball capturing both the ASUN regular season and tournament champions on their way to a 30-win season. So, a lot of tremendous highlights, many more than that, but certainly very proud of our student-athletes and coaches."
