Clark County Today Sports Podcast, July 3, 2024: What are the summer expectations for high school athletes and coaches?

High school sports is a busy time during the summer, even with no official contests

Paul Valencia

What are the expectations for high school athletes in the summer?

What about coaches?

What happens when an athlete’s family wants to go on vacation but it is during a week with summer practice?

We discuss these scenarios in this edition of the Clark County Today sports podcast, with journalist Paul Valencia and sports administrators Cale Piland and Tony Liberatore.

We give a shout out to Columbia River and Camas for their incredible 2023-24 athletic years.

We also talk about our Fourth of July traditions, and whether we are for or against fireworks. 

And a little Mariners talk, too.

The podcast format is simple. Tony Liberatore of Vancouver Public Schools and Cale Piland of Evergreen Public Schools give their thoughts, along with Clark County Today reporter Paul Valencia. Liberatore and Piland are longtime sports administrators. And Valencia has been a sports reporter in the region for more than 20 years. 

We lead with high school sports. Then talk about college and pro, too. And usually a few light items beyond sports.
