XC: Camas Girls Win State Championship

Cross Country

PASCO, WA — It was expected, but it wasn’t a given, as the Camas Girls XC team won their second consecutive State title on Saturday, which was their fourth in five years.

Freshman Rachel Blair finished fourth, covering the 5,000 meter course at Sun Willows Golf Course in 18 minutes, 10 seconds. Sophomore Emma Jenkins was seventh in 18:17, and sophomore Emily Wilson was was in thirteenth place, clocking in at 18:30.

Maddie Woodson and Kaylee Merritt rounded out the five scoring Camas runners, who posted a team score of 81 points.

Many of the girls also compete in Track & Field, as well as run for club teams, so they are well-conditioned all year long. Blair also said their team is coached well, and that although it’s an individual sport, the girls on the team work well together, and encourage each other to excel, and to do their absolute best.

The team begins practice before school even begins in September, and they always set lofty goals for themselves.

More details to come.
