Camas wrestlers earn three county championships
Papermaker girls place in a tournament for the first time in school history
Tuesday, January 15, 2013
Six Camas High School wrestlers made history at the Clark County Championships Saturday, at Skyview High School.
Vince Huber became the first Papermaker in six years to win a county championship medal. The CHS senior gained a 7-6 edge on Union's Cody Gromes with 22 seconds left in the final round of the 182-pound championship match. Gromes attempted to escape twice, by Huber refused to let go until the referee blew the whistle.
"I kept my eye on the clock and knew I had to ride him out somehow," Huber said. "I'm proud of the win. He's a tough kid. It just feels great to be able to represent Camas as a Clark County champion."
Taryn Lommasson and Erin Tully not only became the first county girls champions from Camas, they also helped the Papermakers place in their first girls tournament in school history. Jenna Rae Wilson pinned Washougal’s Emily Alder-Storm for third place at 106 pounds. Katie Lindstrom finished fourth for the Papermakers at 124 pounds and Shauna Ahern scored some points for Camas in the 100-pound bracket. The combined effort of those five Papermakers netted a third-place team finish.
