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

The Skyline High volleyball squad continued its reign of terror on the rest of KingCo 4A as the vaunted green and white six-pack darkened the door of the nearby Issaquah Eagles Nest and slapped the big birds aside, winning in four sets, 18-25, 27-25, 25-21 and 25-15. The first round KingCo tourney win lifted Skyline’s overall mark to 13-2 and got the Spartans one step closer to the big dance.
Skyline has only dropped matches to league-leading 9-1 Newport (three games to none) in the KingCo 4A and 13-0 undefeated perennial powerhouse and KingCo 2A/3A frontrunner Mercer Island (three games to one).
The visitors from Sammamish spotted the hosting Eagles the first set 25-18, as the Spartans were caught off guard by a feisty Issaquah group in the first round of the KingCo 4A playoffs.

While Newport and Skyline appear to be running away with possible KingCo 4A volleyball titles, other teams like Issaquah are toiling just to contend and keep up.
“Newport is probably the most organized and well-drilled squad in this league, but Skyline most likely is the better team as far as sheer physical size,” Issaquah head coach Todd Parsons said recently. “Giants rule in the world of volleyball and we don’t have nearly as many six footers on our squad as the Knights (5-0 in league) and the Spartans (5-1 in league).
“But despite the recent absence of senior setter Nina Moore, who had her tonsils out two weeks ago, I think we are going to be all right,” he added. “Eight out of the 11 squads in this conference go to the playoffs, and despite our lack of real size, we are playing .500 volleyball right now.”
