Bringing lacrosse to Camas High School
Tuesday, March 5, 2013
Camas High School juniors Cassius Johnson, Oliver Stanchfield and Bryce Tabbut live for lacrosse.
"When we get up every day, this is the first thing on our minds. We can't wait to get out here," Stanchfield said. "Once you find something you love, you never want to stop doing it. I never realized how fun this sport could be until I started playing it all the time."
Lacrosse coach Jim Avino has been attached to the sport his whole life. He played the game for State University New York, in Cortland, and at Colorado State. He then coached at Colorado State for five seasons, coached a club team in London and coached at North Rockland High School, in New York, where he went to school.
Avino moved to Camas in 2003. After coaching his son's baseball teams for several years, Avino missed his lacrosse stick.
