"We knew going in that we wouldn't be a contender," said coach Curtis Cunningham. "The course definitely didn't favor our team, with its short yardage mixed with doglegs and tiny greens."
Liberty has been consistent in breaking 400 in five-man scores in the tournaments leading to the North Coast Section Tournament of Champions. However, at Fortuna it shot 419. That was only good for 18th place in the field.
Clayton Valley, with which the Lions had swapped positions during the season, could only hit the 407 mark.
Jon Colburn, one of Liberty's clutch players, had a bad day and didn't break into the top five on his team.
Freshman Cody Robinson was the only Lion to break 80. He shot 79.
Derek Baxley was in with an 81, one stroke ahead of Bryce McCutcheon. Then it was Steve Bake at 87, and Bryce Lichenberg at 90.
"It was a good season overall," Cunningham said. "We did very well and showed consistency in the league champions and the NCS South, which got us to the Tournament of Champions."
