CLOVIS — The schedule-makers at the Buchanan Easter Classic didn’t do the Liberty Hawks softball team any favors during pool play this week.
On Saturday, the Div. IV Hawks faced last year’s Div. I top seed El Diamante-Visalia and last year’s Div. II champions, Hanford West.
The games didn’t get any better as Liberty faced Div. I back-to-back Valley Champion Central-Fresno and finally got an “easy game” with Div. III Cesar Chavez, the No. 5 seed in last year’s playoffs. Liberty picked up a 7-2 win in the late game Monday.
The Hawks close the tournament with a 1 p.m. game today against the Tri-River Athletic Conference’s Clovis North Broncos...
