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 5 of the Clark County Today Sports Podcast. We had to talk about the elephant in the room: The proposal to cut athletic directors from Evergreen Public Schools. Yes, there will be sports. But the sports will be run under a new system. And we are in the process of losing qualified, high-character people who love their jobs.
We also give a salute to the Camas girls basketball team for their second-place finish at state, and we talk a little controversy at state basketball. Should video replay be used at state? What about official protests at state?
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.
