CHS Sets 18 Record Times @ Districts

The Camas Papermakers dominated the 4A district boys swimming meet, winning 10 of 12 finals Saturday, and set 18 district meet or pool record-times over the two-day event.

Senior Tom Utas won two individual events in his specialties — the 50 and 100 freestyles in record fashion, nonetheless — and the runner-up in each race was a swimmer he describes as his idol: Heritage’s Maksim Dolbinin.

Utas doesn’t have many chances to race Dolbinin, the defending Class 4A state champion in the 50 free and when he does, Utas calls it a special event.

Gymnastics Team Heads To State


Alexa Dietz captured the 4A district gymnastics all-around championship for Camas Saturday, at Battle Ground High School.

A Camas gymnast won each event at the district meet, but getting every girl on the team to the state meet for the first time in school history was the ultimate dream come true.

“We worked so hard for this, and our hard work paid off,” said team captain Emily Karkanen. “I’m just so proud of our whole team. We all contributed to the team score.”

The Papermakers collected 170.575 points to win their fourth straight district title. And this time, the district champion goes directly to state instead of having to compete at a regional meet. Read more at the CW Post Record

Everyday Heroes: Senior’s Dream Cut Short

CAMAS, WA (KPTV) – Camas High School senior Jake Hansel was an all-league point guard who led the Papermakers to their first state tournament run in some 50 years.

Then he was yanked from the lineup – not by his coach but by his doctor when life became bigger than basketball.

While his heart keeps him out of the game, his heart also keeps him in the game.

Senior Night in the Warehouse of Camas High School was a whole lot different than Hansel had ever imagined.

“He’s stood for everything that we want our program to be,” said coach Skyler Gillispie. Read more at FOX 12 Oregon

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

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