Beautiful weather and thousands of competitors brought out the best in the Papermakers at the Jesuit Relays Friday, in Beaverton, Ore.
The Camas girls track and field team made a big push in the final events to beat 29 other schools for the championship plaque. The Papermakers racked up 73.5 points to beat host Jesuit by 2.84 points.
Camas seniors Amber Corbett and McKenna Jackson finished in first and second place in the javelin. Corbett launched a personal best throw of 129 feet, 10 inches. Jackson also had an all-time best throw of 123-11.
"I've been waiting this entire season to get a PR. The competition and the environment brought it out of me," Corbett said. "Going into this meet, I felt like an underdog, and that really motivated me. It was fun having McKenna right there with me. Her and I feed off each other."
