For the first time in the history of Peoria’s Liberty High School, the girls golf team won the D1 Arizona State Girls Golf title, which has earned them the invitation to complete at the national level.
“This year’s Liberty girls golf team was the first girls team to bring a team state championship home to Liberty. It was a very special accomplishment of this great group of girls,” Liberty Girls Golf Coach Kyle Pooler said. ”Arizona has some of the most competitive golfers in the country. To win a state championship is huge, it is a moment our team, parents and the Liberty community will never forget.”
On November 2, 2021, Liberty outscored 37 time champions Xavier Prep by 3 strokes in the Arizona State Championship that was held at the Tucson Omni Golf Resort. The competition came down to the final hole, and last two matches.
The Lion’s victory granted them an invite to compete in the National High School Golf Association 2022 High School National Invitation at Pinehurst Golf Resort in North Carolina.
The tournament will be held June 27-29 with over 150 high school girl golfers set in the field from all over the United States.
Playing for Liberty High School: graduated senior Mattison Frick, Senior Brooke McGlasson, Senior Annika Saida, Senior Teaen Sweet and Junior Kaitlin Anderson.
The team has spent the last seven months preparing for Nationals and the girls are looking forward to seeing how they match up to teams across the nation.
In 2021, Frick played in the national tournament in Pinehurst. She placed 2nd out of a field of over 200. She was one stroke from the lead.
Frick is committed to playing for the University of Illinois in the Fall of 2022.
McGlasson has verbally committed to playing for the University of Denver in Fall of 2023.
