Tuesday, April 24, 2012
The Camas boys and girls track and field teams combined their efforts to finish in ninth place out of the 46 high schools who competed at the Oregon Relays Friday and Saturday, at Hayward Field in Eugene.
"The atmosphere and ambiance of that meet is so big," said head coach Alisa Wise. "We want these kids to experience a big meet type atmosphere so they learn how to control their emotions and adrenaline. You can be physically prepared, but if you're not disciplined mentally, you're going to be all over the place."
Amber Corbett was one of the many Papermakers who thrived in the spotlight.
"It's a big stadium and tons of people are watching. You're right in the middle of it all," she said. "It's intimidating, but a great experience at the same time."
