The Liberal Bulldogs came from the four seed to win the Class 2 District 12 Tournament at Webb City, defeating Purdy 55-37 in the first round. They then upended top seeded Pierce City 52-42. They topped Thomas Jefferson 56-50 in the title game to advance to the state sectional where they will face off with Marionville at 6 p.m. in Carthage. Here senior Dalton Hendrix shows the kind of effort the Bulldogs put on display all week as he leaps to save a ball from going out of bounds. Also shown in the background is Colten Slinker.
