A great day to be a Panther wrestler

Tuesday, February 5, 2013
Four champions, nine regional qualifiers and six other medallists helped the Washougal boys wrestling team win the 2A sub-regional tournament Saturday, at Washougal High School.
"I won my bracket, but there are a lot of other champions out there," said co-captain Stephen Camden. "It all starts in practice. We go out there and push each other hard every day to represent Washougal the best that we can. I'm always going to remember winning this trophy."
Bursitis in his knee sidelined Camden for a month, but the senior looked like he hadn't lost a step on Saturday. Camden pinned Jacob Mather of R.A. Long in the quarterfinals and Gunnar Long of Ridgefield in the semifinals. He then beat Ridgefield's Clayton Farr 19-13 for the 160-pound championship medal.
