Camas football coach Jon Eagle said that a team doesn’t become 12-0 without being able to go on a run.

Well, his Papermakers showed you can’t become 13-0 without being able to go on a better run.

Camas scored 21 points in the fourth quarter to pull away for a 45-21 win over Sumner and reach the Class 4A state championship game.

The Papermakers (13-0) will face Richland (13-0) at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Tacoma Dome.

“It’s incredible,” senior Michael Matthews said. “It’s like a huge weight has been lifted. But there’s still a lot we need to do, too, in that next game.” Read more at The Columbian

Girls Win 4A State Soccer Championship


The Camas Papermakers hold the championship trophy high after beating the West Valley of Yakima’ Rams 3-0 in the WIAA 4A state championship match November 19, 2016 at Sparks Stadium in Puyallup.

A near-perfect team ended its season in the perfect way – a state championship.

A near-perfect defense had the perfect finale — another shutout.

And Sabine Postma added a goal that was as close to perfect as you’ll see in high school soccer.

Camas beat West Valley of Yakima 3-0 on Saturday to capture the Class 4A state championship.

Football Tops Spartans 28-14 in Semis

This was the best two-for-one deal the Camas Papermakers could have imagined.
Not only are the Papermakers going to the Class 4A football state semifinals, they got there by beating the same team that ended their season a year ago.
Quarterback Jack Colletto rushed for 209 yards and threw for three touchdowns Saturday, Cooper McNatt had a career day, and Camas scored the final two TDs of the evening, beating Skyline 28-14 in the quarterfinals.
The Spartans beat Camas in 2015 in the same round.
“We’ve been thinking about this as soon as that happened,” senior Cooper McNatt said, noting this squad went to work the very next day, just looking forward to another opportunity. Read more at The Columbian

Soccer Playoff 1-0 Win Over Woodinville


One more goal from Maddie Kemp is just what the Camas girls soccer team needed on Saturday.
On the heels of a record-breaking season from Kemp, Camas advanced to the Class 4A state semifinals after defeating Woodinville 1-0 Saturday at Doc Harris Stadium.
Camas will face Skyline of Sammamish in the 4A semifinal at 6 p.m. Friday at Sparks Stadium in Puyallup.
Kemp scored in the ninth minute to lift the team past an opponent that gave the Papermakers’ offense fits at times.
“They put us under a lot more pressure than we’re used to and totally took us out of our game,” Camas coach Roland Minder said.
In the fourth minute, Camas goalkeeper Julie Coombs made a diving save and corralled the ball to keep the score knotted at 0-0. Read more at the Columbian
