Camas Barbers Fall to Idaho 6-5 in First Round of Bend Tourney


BEND, Ore. — The Camas Barbers U10 baseball team fell 6-5 to Idaho in the first round of the Bend Elks Memorial Day Tournament in a hard-fought battle.

The traveling Idaho team hasn’t lost a game in two years and said the Camas team, which is comprised of Camas Little League players, had given them the best competition to date.

Visiting Camas was behind 6-1 at the top of the sixth inning and rallied with four additional runs, thanks to a couple walks and base hits by Jake Blair and Luke Jamison.

Jamison fired off a hit with two outs and tried to get a double, but it wasn’t meant to be, as he was tagged out by Idaho’s second baseman.

The Camas boys continue play throughout the weekend, and are one of several teams competing in Bend and West Linn. The Camas Barbers team is coached by John Blair.

Andy Ott is coaching the U11 Camas Reds traveling team, who begin their first game Saturday at 3 pm in Bend.

Brendan Ford is coaching a U12 Camas Fuel traveling team, and they are currently playing in West Linn. Meanwhile, the Camas U13 Babe Ruth team, coached by Joe Gaudio, won their first tournament game in the Bend Elks Tournament.

More details to come.
