Reporter Paul Valencia and sports administrators Tony Liberatore and Cale Piland talk about high school sports, and a few other things, too.
Here is Episode 4 of the Clark County Today Sports Podcast. We talk state basketball. And not just about the teams from Clark County that are still playing but also how the bracket works and the history of the format. Lots to discuss. Some people can’t stand the format. Is there a better way? Sure, there’s always a better way. But no perfect way.
We also talk about our favorite memories from the state basketball tournament, a shout-out to the individual sports champions from our area who just finished their seasons, and we get into a little bit of Major League Baseball, with a Clark County connection.
It’s me, reporter Paul Valencia, along with high school sports administrators Tony Liberatore of Vancouver Public Schools and Cale Piland of Evergreen Public Schools.
