Change is inevitable in high school athletics.
Graduation means that every four years, new players filter in, while the now-seasoned seniors depart.

The Liberty High School boys basketball team played its final minute of the season in February, but the work never stops for the Patriots, who have a busy summer on tap.
Liberty’s long list of summer events began May 30 with its first golf fundraiser at Renton’s Maplewood Golf Course. More than 130 people attended the golf tournament, which also included a banquet and silent auction.
Assistant coach Steve Kelley, a former Seattle Times columnist, was the banquet’s master of ceremonies, while former Seahawks Mack Strong and Paul Moyer were special guest speakers.

The scoreboard painted a bleak picture after the first quarter of the Liberty High School girls basketball team’s Feb. 13 contest against Juanita.
The Patriots managed just two points in the first eight minutes of play, while the Rebels racked up 15.
Shots just weren’t falling for Liberty in the first quarter of the game that determined third place in the KingCo tournament. It was a struggle, senior captain Sierra Carlson admitted, to remain resolute as the misses just accumulated.
