Seven losses during the preseason made the Camas High School boys basketball players angry, but Thursday was an opportunity for a fresh start and the Papermakers capitalized on it.
"We started to take ownership of the season and set our goals high," said junior forward Trevor Jasinsky. "We want to show people that even though we are the underdogs, we are going to give all we can every game."
Propelled by a 14-2 swing in the second quarter, Camas defeated Skyview 54-49 in the school's first 4A Greater St. Helens League basketball game. Trent Johnson delivered 13 points, Jasinsky netted 12, and Jordan Lenard and Kyle Robb each added eight.
"It was a great start for league," Johnson said. "A lot of people didn't expect us to go to Skyview and do that. I hope we can keep improving and get more and more wins."
