Camas cross country teams clinch district titles
Climb every mountain
Tuesday, October 23, 2012
The Camas High School cross country teams reached the Greater St. Helens summit, but there are more mountains to climb.
Both the boys and the girls captured the 4A district championship Thursday, at Lewisville Park in Battle Ground. The Papermakers clinched both titles for the second year in a row.
"It just shows our dominance," said senior Tucker Boyd. "Whether we're in 3A or 4A, we're going to compete with you."
Alexa Efraimson earned first place with a time of 18 minutes, 9 seconds. She beat Alexis Fuller of Union to the finish line by 37 seconds.
Efraimson loves this quote from Olympic runner and author Hal Higdon, "Even when you have gone as far as you can, and everything hurts, and you are staring and the specter of self doubt, you can find a bit more strength deep inside if you look closely enough."
