The Camas Papermakers watched the clips. They saw the opponent.

So they went to work.

Jack Colletto threw two touchdown passes, ran for two, and also intercepted a pass — in the first half alone — leading Camas to a 55-6 victory over Graham-Kapowsin at Doc Harris Stadium.

Yacine Guermali Wins 4A State X-Country

CHS Senior Yacine Guermali captured the 4A boys state cross country title this past Saturday, on the Sun Willows Golf Course in Pasco. He beat more than 150 runners to the finish line in 15 minutes, 12.8 seconds.
Daniel Maton notched eighth place in 15:43 to help the Papermakers rise to fifth place. Jackson Lyne (16:44), David Connell (16:47.4), Nicholas Carter (16:56.2), Nick Duffy (16:56.7) and Cade Greseth (17:02.8) helped the boys improve from sixth-place finishes at state in 2015 and 2014.

In the 4A girls race, Issaquah spoiled Camas’ bid for a third straight state team title. The Eagles bested the Papermakers for the championship by 18 points.

Camas Trounces Enumclaw, 56-0

Camas’ running back Michael Matthews (12) escapes Enumclaw’s defense during the first quarter. He rushed for 35 yards and one touchdown. The Papermakers rack up 443 yards of offense, 49 points, just in first half.

Every time the Camas football team scores a touchdown, a mill’s steam-whistle sound is blasted through Doc Harris Stadium. That whistle worked overtime Friday. So did the Papermakers offense.

Camas was dominant in its 56-0 win over Enumclaw in the preliminary round of the Class 4A state playoffs.

By halftime, the Papermakers were ahead 49-0, meaning the entire second half was played under the running-clock mercy rule.

Yes, that whistle sounded often as Camas (10-0) signaled its status as the No. 1-ranked team in the Class 4A Associated Press statewide poll. Read more at The Columbian

Girls Soccer Clinch 4A State Berth

It wasn’t a question of if the Camas girls soccer team could fire up their engine on Thursday. After all, the team always plays full-throttle.

And after a convincing 5-0 win over Rogers of Puyallup, the Papermakers are one mile further on the road to their goal.

Maddie Kemp scored three goals as Camas won a bi-district playoff game Thursday at Doc Harris Stadium. The victory ensures Camas a berth in the Class 4A state tournament.

That Thursday was a loser-out game didn’t faze the Papermakers, who are looking to build off their third-place finish in state last year. “I don’t think there was a flipping of the switch because we’ve always played pretty intense,” Camas coach Roland Minder said. “We have a good speed of play. They’re very competitive, every one of them, even in practice.”

Camas (16-0-1) entered Thursday having outscored its opponents 68-1. It’s been a season of consistent dominance for a team that has high goals. Read more at The Columbian
