The team's first game is set for December 28 where they will face-off against Nazareth at 10 am. With three players on the "players to watch" list, the Warriors can be expected to play hard throughout the entire tournament.
Seniors Emma Wolski and Jadyn Fife alongside junior Emma Kay Martin, the team has great leadership and will continue to put their best foot forward throughout the tournament and season.

There's something special about coming into a new sports season as the reigning state champion. Argyle Liberty Christian knows all about that as they get geared up and ready to go for the upcoming season. VYPE DFW dives deeper into the program at Liberty Christian and gives an insight into what fans can expect in 2021!
When the season was uncertain, the Lady Warriors never feared. Finishing their district as one of the top teams, they went into playoffs poised and ready to take down any opponent that stood in their way of a state title. One by one, Liberty Christian downed their opponents before facing off against former reigning champion St. Agnes. In an all-out battle to be the best in the state, Liberty Christian held strong and won the championship game.
The championship game was only their third appearance in the state tournament and their second title since winning in 2006. In their only other appearance, Liberty Christian finished as the state runner-up in 2007. Defeating St. Agnes in 2020 was huge for the Lady Warriors as St. Agnes holds the TAPPS records not only for most state titles, but also for most state tournament appearances!LCS

The Lady Warriors can be expected to come into the new season strong. Although the team lost quite a bit of graduating seniors last year, the leadership in the new upperclassmen will prove to be what helps the newcomers and underclassmen maintain their composure as they begin the season.
After a bit of a rebuild in early games, fans should expect Liberty Christian to find the groove meant for them as they continue on towards trying to harness another appearance in the state tournament... and possibly another state title to add to their belt!
