Camas, WA — On Saturday, September 14, the Camas Athletic Boosters Club will hold its annual Tom Wallenborn Golf Tournament and charity auction at Camas Meadows Golf Club.

This will be the 13th annual golf tournament and charity auction, which raises significant money for local athletic programs. Registration begins at 7:15 am, and the tournament begins at 8:30 am.

“It’ll be another great event,” said Ryan Dickerson, of the Camas Athletics Boosters Club. “Last year, about 150 players came out for a fun round of golf supporting our local athletes. Last year, we raised a little over $58,000 and are hoping to beat this number this year.  Also this year we will be having a meal after the golf tournament.  At the meal we will be having a live auction and many different raffles to raise money.  Tickets will be on sale at the event.  If people are interested in coming to the lunch and auction please email the boosters — we’d love to see you there.”

To register for the tournament, go to www.camasboosters.org or send an email to camasboosters@gmail.com

The objective of the golf tournament is to raise funds to supplement any needs of the student athletics programs from middle school level up through high school.  The club also provides money for scholarships that the boosters gives away each year for seniors who are continuing to college.

Golf Tournament

Dickerson said community members are free to come walk around and enjoy the afternoon.

“We have many local businesses that have sponsored this tournament and many of the different sports teams have put together baskets and different items for the auction,” he said. “We have some great trips, vacation homes, football games, and reserved 50 yard line seats with parking at the remaining Camas home games.”

Swimmers from local Camas and Vancouver clubs broke team records while taking home several state titles at last weekend’s four-day OSI Area Long Course Championships at Mt. Hood Community College.

The athletes have been preparing for months to meet specific times, and many achieved or exceeded those goals.

“We experienced very positive team work with accountability and skill set enforcement,” said Darlene Lumbard, head coach of Columbia River Swim Team (CRST).

Many of her athletes compete for local high schools, including Camas, Heritage, Union, and Mountain View, during the school season. We also covered achievements from the Lacamas Headhunters swim team.

At Friday’s Babe Ruth PNW Regional Championship Series, the game between the Camas-Washougal All-Star’s and the team from New Castle, WY got off to a very slow start. 

The two teams were fairly evenly matched for the first three innings of the game with a tied score of 1-1 at the bottom of the 3rd.  However, the WY All-Stars pulled ahead over the next two innings scoring five runs against the CW defense, making the score 6-1 by the end of the 5th.  

WY seemed to have the game locked up with 2 outs at the top of 6th, but the CW bats came alive and the entire line up came up swinging on a 2-out rally that seemed to never end.  Carter Keyser led off the inning with a base hit to get the team started. Carter Bennett helped bring him in with a 1-run single. He was followed by a 1-run single by AJ Sorrells, 2-run double by Chase Howington, an outstanding 3-run single by Luke Jamison, and Nate Adams wrapped up the inning with a final 1-run single.  By the end of the 6th inning, the tides had turned in CW´s favor. CW scored 8 runs that inning, making the score 9-6.

The 7th inning was more of the same.  They stunned WY with a base hit by Dax Clifton to get the inning started. Ben Burnett had a 2-run single, Knuth followed with a bunt scoring another run.  There were more base hits by Keyser and Adams, and the final 1-run single was made by Carter Bennett to put the CW team ahead by an additional 9 runs.

Closing pitcher, Gavin Keyser, had a great afternoon on the mound.  He and the CW defense did not allow a single run to score the final two innings of the game, making the final score of Friday’s game, 17-6.  CW will face the North Washington All-Stars from Moses Lake Saturday at 10 am in the semi-finals. If CW wins at 10 am, they will move onto the finals to face the winner of the 1 pm semis.  Finals will be Saturday at 5 pm.

The Camas-Washougal Babe Ruth All-Stars struggled to find their bats Wednesday evening while facing the All-Stars from Glacier, Montana. 

CW found themselves behind 0-3 by the end of the 1st inning. The lead off batter from Montana came out swinging with a double into left field.  CW starting pitcher, Trey Briggs, did a great job on the mound, but the Montana batting line-up followed with a base hit, bringing in their first run.  Montana continued with a another single, base on balls, and a 2-run single to finish off the inning.  

Relief pitcher for CW, Dax Clifton, was brought in at the bottom of the 4th.  Even though Clifton had 3 strikeouts during the remainder of the game, Montana managed to score again in the 4th and 6th innings, making their lead 5-0 by the end of the 6th.  

CW rallied in the top of the 7th with a double by Nate Adams. Keyser brought Adams in with a 1-run single, finally putting CW on the board, The final score was 1-5 for the night.  

CW will play again tomorrow evening at 7:00, where they will face the all-stars from Idaho.

Bellevue, WA — The Camas Girls Gymnastics team won their second consecutive State Championship Friday night at Sammamish High School, with a team score of 184.825, which is the third highest score in state history.

Camas sophomore Shea McGee finished first in the all-around with a score of 38.175 across four events.

Two other Papermakers medaled in the all-around — sophomore Alyssa Shibata (36.925, sixth) and freshman Peyton Cody (36.850, tied-eighth). A total of five Camas gymnasts advanced to individual finals (top-16 ) on Saturday morning.

McGee finished first in the vault with a 9.750 in the team’s last event of the day. With their rotation completed, and knowing their overall score, they felt strongly they would earn their second consecutive title. Archrival Woodinville still had to finish, and would place second, five points behind Camas.

Camas also performed well during Saturday’s individual finals. McGee, Shibata, Cody, Olivia Bane, and Lili Ford arrived early ready to compete. Bane, who was to compete in Bars, injured her knee during a fall during warmups, which eliminated her from competition.

“As a team, everyone was just so amazing and so helpful,” said Ford. “I’ve never been in this experience before. It just felt so good!”

On floor, McGee placed third.

On bars, McGee placed second, and Cody fourth.

On vault, Ford placed third, while McGee placed eigth.

On beams, Shibata, McGee, and Ford placed second, third, and fourth, respectively.

Coach Perspective

“Camas did so well because we were well prepared,” said Camas Head Coach, Carol Willson. “We peaked at the precise time. We are blessed to have athletes that are club gymnasts or in some gymnastics training year round and are still able to manage the grades, and juggle the schedule of late night practices to follow High School rules. We have incredible depth.

“Almost every one one of the gymnasts on the State roster are in multiple sports or activities ranging from Gymnastics, Crew, Cheer, Dance, Worship Ministry, Young Life, etc. They sacrifice a lot to make a State title happen and let WIAA gymnastics know now that Camas exists. Last year I had a lot of people asking ‘Where is Camas?’ and this year they knew we were the team to beat. We went in as not only defending champions but also with the highest team score at Districts. We also went in with the highest individual AA score in the State from Shea.”

Gymastics
From left: Camas coaches Tricia Hoppa and Carol Willson.

“Out of four AA competitors 3 were in the top 8 in the State. Camas has an amazing AD that expects accountability from his Coaches and athletes. I expect my gymnasts to be kind, gracious, and to serve their teammates. They have jobs to do and they do them.”

“This has become a well working machine. Joy and Madison will be missed not just for their gymnastics but for their ability to lead. Annika and Lizzy will continue in that role and are already tremendous leaders. Forty kids came together as one. Not by coincidence but by the leadership that I was able to put in place and empowered these Captains to thrive under and grow as young women. Grace and Morgan bring the quiet lead-from-behind spirit. All of the kids go the second mile.”

“There is a deep heart connection with these kids. They bring out the best in myself and Tricia and the best in their teammates. 24 routines competed, 24 routines with not one fall. 20 10.0 start values…just amazing. Hours spent on team building and cohesive development added to their super hero ability and each of them owning their job! In watching these kids mature they will be bright stars among their generation. I am a better person having the amazing opportunity to Coach them.”

Vancouver, WA — The Camas Gymnastics team won the Winterfest meet Saturday with a final score of 181.8, which is their highest score in team history.

The reigning State champions were functioning on all cylinders with a full and healthy roster as they battled several other local teams at the annual meet, which was held at Naydenov Gymnastics.

“We are right where we need to be a month away from State scoring higher than our State Championship score by .6 with eight falls,” said Camas Head Gymnastics Coach, Carol Willson. “They are getting stronger each weekend, and are right in schedule to peak at State. Collectively joining together to make the team score which is indicated by seeing the .15 -.2 difference between our top six to seven kids makes the district line up difficult to choose. Consistency is better and start values are getting to the full value needed by all the girls.”

Here are the results, by event:

Camas, WA — The Warehouse was well attended Tuesday night as Camas hosted Heritage for their first wrestling dual of the new season. Camas won, 59-21.

Heritage had some impressive athletes, but they weren’t able to overcome Camas.

In addition, Latimer was named Athlete of the Week by The Columbian newspaper.

”In the last couple of hours I took first, so that was really cool for my team,” said Latimer. “I’m really happy about that. We’re off to a great start.”
