From Red-outs to Black-outs, White-outs and everything in between it’s refreshing to see so many students support the Papermakers. They’re great, even when they drop baby powder all over your camera equipment! Love them!

 

Thank you, Coach Jon Eagle! And thank you to all the coaches who have led these young men to an amazing several seasons. The Papermakers ended their 2014 season Saturday night at Doc Harris Stadium.

“It’s always a privilege to coach these great kids,” said Eagle. “They work very hard, and it shows on and off the field. I always hope they make right decisions in their lives, and work together.”

 

CAMAS — The Camas Varsity football team made their statement early and loud Friday night against Evergreen on their home turf with a series of solid plays, beating the Plainsmen 49-7.

Vancouver— Swimmers Kasey Calwell, a Senior at Camas High School and Chris Xue, a Senior at Mountainview High School, have been named Scholastic All-Americans by USA Swimming. Calwell and Xue are among only 865 boys nationally, and among fewer than 200 boys in the Western Zone to qualify.  Applicants must be a USA Swimming athlete and have qualifying times equal to a Junior National Bonus time standard, and have a minimum 3.5 GPA. Both boys have 4.0 averages. Nearly 70 percent of all winners have a 4.0 average.

Calwell and Xue are the only swimmers, male or female, from Clark County to be awarded this distinction.

Both are actively being recruited by colleges from all over the country. Xue is a 50 Freestyler and Calwell an Individual Medley and Breaststroke specialist. Calwell will be attending Winter Junior Nationals in December, in Federal Way.

In addition, both have excelled on their respective high school teams over the past three years; and both have competed and performed well at State competition.

They are both coached by Darlene Hill of Columbia River Swim Team in Vancouver. 
“I’m honored by the award,” said Calwell, who is considering several colleges.
