On Friday night, Jan. 31, the Liberty High School students rallied around the boys and girls basketball teams and banded together to set the all-time single game student attendance record. Liberty High School associated student body (ASB) Leadership students coordinated the effort to set the attendance record.
Dressed in purple and gold in honor of Kobe Bryant, 452 students came to support the Liberty girls and boys teams. A plaque with each student’s name and group photo will be placed outside the gym to commemorate the event.
“It was not only the record for most students but in my eight seasons we have not seen such a packed house,” Coach Omar Parker said on the night. “Our Liberty students have been the best supporters in the conference all year and it was a great way to send off our seniors, Connor Thomas, Chase McAllister, Beau Pederson, Jeff Yamada and Hayden Sorrell.”
Both Boy’s and Girl’s team have qualified for the district tournament and have just one remaining Kingco conference game.
