Camas Girls Basketball Win State Championship Title: ‘It’s Finished’

Girls Basketball

Tacoma, WA — A year after a tough loss at the state championship game, the Camas Girls Varsity Basketball redeemed themselves with a decisive 57-41 victory over Gonzaga Prep Saturday night at the Tacoma Dome. They made history.  

A year ago, Parker Mairs told Lacamas Magazine: “We’ll be back next year, and we’ll win it. We have unfinished business.”

And win it, they did. Saturday’s game showed a year’s worth of work and effort. They were more determined than last year, better prepared. They had experience, and it showed. For weeks leading up the championship game players and fans alike used the hashtag #unfinished and that quickly changed to #finished after winning the state title.

“It feels like we’re finally finished,’’ Camas coach Scott Thompson said in an interview with NFHS immediately after the game. “These girls deserve every bit of this. I feel losing the state championship game last year might have won us this one. At this point, it’s a storybook ending. This team has been so connected. The chemistry has been off the charts. I can’t tell you what it’s been like to coach these girls.’’

Reagan Jamison led Camas with 17 points with seven rebounds. Addison Harris earned 12 points and eight rebounds.

Keirra Thompson added nine points and six assists Saturday. 

She acknowledged leading up to the big game this was their version of the Revenge Tour, reflecting on the 2019 Camas Football team’s state championship title and the run up to that incredible victory.

“We’ve been playing with each other since the fifth grade,’’ Thompson told NFHS. “We’ve played together for so long it’s become easy for us, natural for us. I couldn’t be any happier. Everything for the past year has been leading to this day and we didn’t disappoint. This is so special, especially coming off last year, losing in the championship game, it drove us to work so hard.’’

Mairs said, “it’s finished.”

Yes, indeed.
