The Camas High School basketball teams dominated their “Hoops for Pink” games Friday, inside the Camas warehouse.

A 22-8 scoring barrage in the first quarter helped the Papermaker boys beat Heritage 55-28. It was their first league victory of the season after falling behind early in their previous league games and not being able to catch up.

The Camas boy shared the basketball. Jordan Anderson and Trevor Jasinsky each netted nine points, James Price added eight, and Jordan Lenard and Nick Lopes both had six points.

The Papermaker girls pummeled the Timberwolves 62-20. Camas outscored Heritage 12-7 in the first quarter, 20-7 in the second quarter, 16-4 in the third quarter and 14-2 in the fourth quarter.

“Pink” Team Effort

On the receiving end of passes from Brenna Khaw, Rachel Rice and Meghan Finley, Nikki Corbett delivered 16 of her team-leading 22 points in the first half. She scored 10 of those points in the second quarter.

Khaw netted 13 points. Brenna Vargo and Teague Schroeder sparked the Papermakers off the bench. Vargo earned eight points and Schroeder added six.

The annual event raises money for the Kay Yow Foundation, which earmarks funds toward fighting breast cancer research.
Money was raised by selling T-shirts and through buying raffles to purchase donated gift baskets.
“The event was a real success,” said Nadine Knight, one of the parent volunteers. “We’re so grateful for the support of our community. Cheers to all of the businesses and individuals who donated for our baskets. Could NOT have done any of this without them. Thank you Camas for coming through again.”
