Local teen tracks asteroid…
Senior Jason Kim participated in a research program this summer at the New Mexico Institute of Technology. During the 39 day program, he operated a research-grade telescope to take images of a near-earth asteroid, then wrote software to measure its position precisely and calculate its orbital path, including the chance it will impact Earth in the future.

Papermakers in Pursuit…

Camas defense holds Ridgefield to no shots on goal in 3-0 victory.

Sometimes the soccer ball hits the post, but following up leads to a goal.
“It’s soccer,” said Camas High School head coach Roland Minder. “You wish it would go in, but you see it all the time.”
Ellie Echeverio, Alyssa Tomasini and Sophia Sanzobrin turned their pursuit into points for the Papermakers in a 3-0 victory against Ridgefield Saturday, at Doc Harris Stadium. Read more at the CW Post-Record

Gianan Places 2nd at 4A State Tennis

tennis_giananFor all that last year’s Class 4A girls state tennis singles final wasn’t, Hannah Gianan of Camas and Angela Schuster of Timberline put on a show this year.

From comebacks to fighting off multiple match points, Saturday’s final at Columbia Basin Racquet Club in Richland had it all.

In the end, the 4A Greater St. Helens League lost its four-year hold on the state title as Schuster defeated Gianan 2-6, 7-6 (4), 6-4.

The past four years the state singles title was held by Skyview’s Sammi Hampton, who finished her career last year with a walkover victory in the final. No match was played.

Enter Gianan, a junior, who had won the state doubles title the past two seasons. Her opponent Schuster lost to Hampton in the first round last year and went on to place fifth. Read more at The Columbian

Girls & Boys State Track Results

lofsteadCongratulations to senior Caleigh Lofstead who repeated as the state pole vault champion.
Lofstead had her fingers crossed headed into the 4A pole vault Saturday. She strained a ligament in her back shortly before last weekend’s bi-district meet and barely practiced since then.
“I only made maybe four or five jumps this past week before coming up here,” Lofstead said. “I didn’t know what to expect, especially if it was going to rain or be windy.” Read more at The Columbian
