Sorting out Liberty’s 2A postseason

November 11, 2014

NEW — 11 a.m. Nov. 11, 2014

As the 2014 fall high-school postseason continues, most Liberty sports teams are finding that everything is just a little bit different this year.

The Patriots are now playing at the 2A level for at least the next two years. Liberty previously played at 3A, opting up a classification, despite the school’s size.

Liberty’s regular season remained unchanged. They still played a competitive schedule in the tough KingCo 3A/2A Conference.

But now that the school is in 2A, the road through the playoffs has a slightly different look to it. Read more

Liberty sports will move to 2A next season

January 14, 2014

Liberty High School sports teams will compete in the 2A classification for a two-year period beginning in the 2014-2015 school year.

The Washington Interscholastic Activities Association released enrollment numbers showing that Liberty, at 891.8, is the size of a 2A school. Schools with less than 990.8 students, but more than 472, are considered 2A.

In the recent past, the Patriots have opted up to the 3A level, despite its stature as one of the state’s smallest 3A schools, but this time around administrators have decided to test the 2A waters.

Explosive second half propels Patriots to win

October 15, 2013

Liberty High School soccer coach Tami Nguyen must have said something rather poignant during her halftime speech to the team in an Oct. 8 match against Interlake.

The Patriots ended the first half down 1-0. The second half was a different story, however, as Liberty erupted for five goals, clinching a 5-3 victory against the Saints.

Nguyen’s halftime pep talk to the team was short and simple, according to Liberty defender Shaniah Adriano.

“’Horrible start,’ that’s the first thing coach said,” Adriano said.

Athletes’ triumphs create community pride

Skyline High School’s football and soccer teams just keep bringing home honors to the Issaquah School District. The Issaquah and Liberty high school teams have also added many awards to the virtual district trophy case.

Skyline girls soccer took first in state for the fourth time in five years. And the Dec. 1 state playoff football game gave Skyline the gridiron title again for the fifth time in eight years. Skyline’s 200-medley relay team won the state swim title last month.

Issaquah is a known winner among 4A KingCo teams. The Eagles came in second, to Skyline, for the state girls soccer championship. This year’s football team reached the playoffs. The school’s wrestlers won the district title in 2011 and sent six wrestlers to state.
