Four Hazen High School students announced plans to continue their athletic endeavors in college at a signing day ceremony Feb. 5.
Hazen soccer standouts Gabby Brower and Chelsea Delgado will play the sport in college after leading this year’s team to its first outright Seamount League title since 1992, and a state tournament appearance.
Brower will play at Western Washington University, while Delgado will suit up at Bellevue College.
Hazen football standouts Joe Glaefke and Quadir Griffin will also continue their athletic careers in college. The all-league performers will both play at Everett Junior College.

The 2013-2014 Hazen High School Highlanders boys basketball team isn’t used to losing, so when it suffered its second loss of the season against Renton Jan. 24, the boys couldn’t wait to get back on the court.
“We took two days off and I think they were just excited to get back competing on the court again, which was encouraging to see,” coach Ryan Thompson said.

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 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.

If you scoured the 3A state girls basketball rankings at the beginning of the season, you wouldn’t find Liberty High School mentioned on any lists.
The Patriots weren’t even considered in the same class as KingCo 3A/2A giants Juanita and Bellevue. It’s understandable — this group, with virtually the same roster, went 13-11 last year, good for fourth in the conference.
The Patriots girls basketball team is quickly turning heads across the state, though, with big wins against ranked opponents Everett, Bellevue and previously unbeaten Juanita.

Less than a year ago, Brigette and Kelsey Takeuchi, Sydney Hartford and Noah Pritchett roamed the halls at Maywood Middle School.
Fast forward to their first year at Liberty High School. Three of them have competed among the top athletes in the state, while the fourth has found a place on a varsity squad that rarely makes room for freshmen.
Liberty sports teams found a lot of success this fall, due in no small part to these budding stars.
