After a 2012 campaign that yielded zero wins, Alex Wilsey, then a Liberty High School freshman, didn’t see much hope in the Patriots’ boys golf team’s future.
“We never really succeeded at all,” said Wilsey, now a senior. “We didn’t go into matches believing that we would win. We were simply outmatched and outperformed every time.”
Liberty’s fortunes started changing his sophomore year as the Patriots picked up a handful of wins. Nothing too dramatic, he said, but it gave the team confidence they could win for the first time. Read more

If you seed it, they will come.
New grass grows on an L-shaped strip of land surrounding the southwest end of Snoqualmie’s Cascade View Elementary School, and so does the hope of a community to see children play baseball and soccer on it next fall.
Scott Phelps, a Cascade View parent and the superintendent at The Golf Club at Newcastle, offered a helping hand to help make the dream of the field a reality.
The field is owned by the Snoqualmie Valley School District and Little League organizations have been helping out with the work, Phelps said.
“We want to help create some field space for them and they are helping finance the remodel work out there,” he said.
Ray Wilson, principal of Cascade View Elementary School, sees the little blades of grass covering the once-bumpy, weedy dirt and smiles.
“It’s the best I’ve seen this field since I’ve been here,” Wilson said, who has been the principal of Cascade View for three years.
