Camas runs this county
Cross country season begins with Run-A-Ree
Tuesday, September 11, 2012
The Camas High School cross country athletes approached Friday’s Run-A-Ree as if it was a race for the unofficial Clark County championship.
"By the look in everybody's eyes, you could tell that we wanted to race and were excited to race," said Papermaker head coach Mike Hickey.
The Camas boys and girls bested 13 other Clark County schools in the freshman/sophomore, junior varsity and varsity levels, including their new league rivals Battle Ground, Skyview and Union. Alexa Efraimson finished first in the varsity girls race, and set a new course record time of 18 minutes. The previous record of 18:18 was held by Skyview's Priscilla Timmons.
"It was a good way to start the season, but I know that it's not going to be my best race," Efraimson said. "This just shows how serious we are and how dedicated we are this early in the season. It can only go up from here."
