Papermaker softball team is playing for more prizes
State is the main goal
Tuesday, May 15, 2012
After becoming league and district champions in the same season for the first time in school history, the Camas softball players are determined to go the distance.
On Friday at 4 p.m., the Papermakers play Capital or Bonney Lake in the quarterfinals of the bi-district tournament at the Sprinkler Center in Tacoma. And that is the only game that matters to them.
"We can't look too far ahead. Just take things inning by inning and pitch by pitch," said senior pitcher and infielder Sarah Nidick. "If we take care of that first goal and win that first game we're going to state, which is the ultimate goal."
Camas (17-3) was in this same position in 2011 and failed to capitalize. The opportunity to rewrite history in 2012 makes this the most important week of the season for the Papermakers.
