LONGVIEW, WA — The Camas High School Girls Swim Team won the Pentathlon swim event Saturday at Mark Morris Pool, beating Union and Washougal, scoring 368 points overall.
The top 15 finishers were Lady Papermakers Paeton Lesser, who placed third; Mady Scherwinski, and Mia Kamenko, who tied for ninth place. Hope Him placed 15th, and five swimmers qualified for Districts.
“Our goal this year is to have more girls qualify for Districts,” said Scherwinski. “And we’d love to have more compete at State. This year we have a very young team, with a lot of Freshmen, and fewer Seniors.”
Last Thursday, the girls narrowly lost their first Dual meet to Union. That event was held at Vancouver’s Cascade Athletic Club.

Bailey Segall won the 500 Free event (5:36).
The Camas 200 Free Relay team won that event, as well, clocking in at 1:59.49. The relay team consisted of Segall, Jessica Bretz, Scherwinski, and Lesser.
Camas also won the 400 Free Relay event (3:53.96), which also comprised Segall, Bretz, Scherwinski, and Lesser.
“We have a lot of opportunity for growth this year,” said Coach, Mike Bemis, who also coaches the Camas Boys team, as well as swimmers at Columbia River Swim Team (CRST). “Since we have a lot of young players, we’re figuring out the best mix of relay teams right now.”
