RICHLAND, Wash. -- The Liberty Christian Patriots are back home to show off their 1B state trophy. Saturday Liberty Christian defeated Neah Bay on the last play of the game, winning 34-28. The Patriots steam-rolled through their conference play, winning by no less than 40 points per game, but in the semifinal and championship games they won by a total of eight points. The Patriots are still getting used to the title, state champs.

"We'll its awesome and it's hard to compare because it's the first state championship that I've ever had. But it's exciting, I sometimes wonder if it's really totally set in yet, I guess. It was a lot of hard work and so it's a little bit of a relief at the same time, you know, knowing that you were able to accomplish your goal," head coach Mike Olson said.
