As long as there's been Liberty High School, there's been Gary Weston to oversee the school's cross country and distance running programs. Sometime Sunday afternoon, near the scheduled conclusion of the weather-delayed state track and field championships at Jeffco Stadium in Lakewood, the 61-year-old Weston will punch the button on his stopwatch as coach for the last time. Now, it's time for a new journey for Weston after his 30-year run at Liberty, which opened its doors in 1987. Among the highlights on his watch included Sarah Schwald's individual cross country championship as a freshman in 1987, two boys' state team cross country crowns (2002-03) and titles turned in by Matt Kemper, Alex Clayton and Kirsten Anthony.
