Camas tennis turns tides on Columbia River
Papermakers zero in on league title
Tuesday, May 1, 2012
Every game counted between the Camas and Columbia River girls tennis teams Wednesday.
Esther Kwon, Jen Lewis and Lily Hsu won three singles matches for the Papermakers, but the Chieftains countered with three victories in doubles to force a tiebreaker.
After the sets were also tied at six, Camas won with 43 total games to Columbia River's 41. Head coach Jonathan Burton didn't want to hang around and find out what would have happened if the teams tied in total games as well. He had been waiting long enough for this win.
"I have been coaching the girls since 2000, and I don't ever recall us beating River until now," he said. "I've been hanging around and waiting for this win for 13 years, but most of these kids haven't been around that long. I could see some high fives and smiles when I explained to them how big this win was for our program."
