Going the distance
Tuesday, April 17, 2012
Just in case they had forgotten, Alexa Efraimson, Austen Reiter and Camille Parsons reminded the schools at the John Ingram Twilight track and field meet how the Camas girls became state champions in cross country.
By going the distance together.
Efraimson turned the track at Columbia River High School into her own personal playground Friday. The freshman finished first in the 1,600-meter run with a time of 4 minutes, 57.2 seconds. It is the fastest mile by any girl in the state so far.
"Going into the mile, our team has a saying. 'Slay the pain dragon,' " Efraimson said. "I was able to kill the dragon today. Once I crossed the finish line, I was pretty stoked."
