LIBERTY July 3, 2001 Overall Record: 217
League Record: 217 in the OCIAA Division III
Top Hitters: Joe Colacurcio batted .377 with seven homers. Mike Poje hit .366 and stole 15 bases. Adam Birkett and Adam Lake both batted over .300.
Top Pitchers: Nick Rusin, he got both of our wins, said coach James OConnor.
Season Highlights: I had a group of kids top heavy with seniors and they kept a good attitude throughout the season, OConnor said. They tried hard every game. It was one of the most enjoyable seasons to coach. They never lost heart and showed up to play even though they knew they were outgunned.
Disappointments: Obviously, a losing season. We played in a very tough division, said OConnor, who, like other Liberty coaches, has had to contend with his squads moving up to Class B.
Final Thoughts: OConnor cited junior Adam Myshtari, who worked his way into the starting lineup as an outfielder and turned into a very good hitter.
He also looked forward to the return of junior Randy Caruso. Hes got a very good arm, hes a very good player, OConnor said.
