Bundled up against the wind and pelted by the rain, the Camas High School girls golf team were thrilled to reach the top after a crazy Thursday on the Tri-Mountain course in Ridgefield.
The Camas team, which comprises Ashley Clark, Hailey Oster, Abigail Jiang, Emma Cox and Wenny Cai performed well enough to finish in the top seven and propel the Papermakers to first place at the Chieftain Invitational.
Anchored by an even par performance on the front nine, Clark claimed the individual title with a score of 82. Oster and Jiang tied for third place, Cox earned sixth place and Cai followed in seventh place.
Kallie Sakamoto led Washougal with a 91. She struggled on the front nine, but turned things around on the back and finished the day with a smile.
Camas returns to Tri-Mountain Monday to play in the Titan Cup.
Jiang keeps herself busy, as the very next day she traveled to Cheney, WA with 37 other teammates to compete at the State Science Olympiad competition — which Camas won on Saturday night.
