The top of the podium belonged to Bellermine Prep, but the Camas girls cross country runners looked each other in the eye and didn’t see an inch of regret.
“We all raced as hard as we could,” said Alexa Efraimson. “It was a lot more competitive this year than last year.”
The Papermakers finished in second place out of the top 16 schools in the state Saturday, at the Sun Willows Golf Course, in Pasco. Bellermine Prep won the title by 13 points. This is the third state trophy for the Camas girls, after they won championships in 2011 and 2012.
“It was fun to have a second chance to go out and do it again,” said Alexa Jones. “You never know what the outcome is going to be. You just have to trust yourself and know your teammates are going to work as hard as you do.”
