Several Evergreen Storm athletes from Camas and Washougal qualified for the USATF Junior Olympic Track and Field National Championships July 22 to 28, at the North Carolina A&T University, in Greensboro.
A team record 33 medals led the Storm to third place at the regional championship meet Saturday and Sunday, at Chief Self High School, in Seattle.
“Most of these kids had never been in a meet this big before. There were smiles all around,” said club president Scott Slamp. “Once these kids learn how to respond to the high level of competition, they learn what they need to do in order to reach their goals and achieve their dreams.”
