These were two of my favorite teams last year! I really enjoyed seeing how much work Liberty put in all year at getting better and was overjoyed to see them do so well at the end of the season. Thanks to all the participants (Beth Mendenhall, Derek Ziegler, Eddie Fitzgerald, and Benjamin Hagwood). K State would go on to win this debate and the rest of the tournament.
