Carl Occhipinto,
INF, 2017, 1st Team All Conference
Douglas Wood,
INF, 2018, 1st Team All Conference
 

SEASON OUTLOOK
The Eagles will return as defending district champions for the 2017 season, returning six starters and three pitchers.  They will be lead by three players that received All-Conference honors last season.  Junior OF James Perry, an attendee of the PBR Future Games last August, earned KC All-Metro honors as a sophomore, while All-Conference senior SS Carl Occhipinto and junior INF Douglas Wood will solidify the infield.  The Eagles will have some holes to fill in the pitching staff, but look for Liberty North to improve as the season goes on.  The Eagles are always tough at the end of the year and know how to make a charge in the Missouri Class 5 playoffs.  Expect more of the same in 2017.
