Final decision made in Camas football case

Final decision handed out on Camas football case

After a final review, the WIAA Executive Board ruled that the Camas High School athetic program be put on probabtion for one year. Head football coach Jon Eagle and defensive coordinator Dan Kielty will not be suspended for any games. All of the CHS athletic coaches will receive mandatory training on WIAA rules and regulations. WIAA Executive Director Mike Colbrese said although there was no intent by Eagle to recruit, meeting with an athlete who wanted to transfer from another school instead of telling him to speak to the athletic director was a violation in protocol. “These are very difficult decisions that are made based on consistency and knowing all the facts,” Colbrese said. “Everybody feels they got a chance to express their concerns, the board took a lot of time to go over all the facts and came up with something that feels like the appropriate way to go.”

Camas creates distance after first day of districts

Caleigh Lofstead only needed two vaults to become district champion Monday, at McKenzie Stadium. The Camas High School junior set her sights on a personal best height of 13 feet, but came up just centimeters short. “I barely hit the bar coming down,” Lofstead said. “I’ve been trying to get to 13 feet for the last few meets. This is the closest I’ve been to it all season. For it to come at state would be a good time.” Lofstead is a three-time district champion in the pole vault. She hopes to improve on her third-place finish at state this weekend, at Mt. Tahoma High School in Tacoma. “Back when I started pole vaulting, I never thought this could be possible,” Lofstead said. “My goal has always been just to make it to state. Becoming district champion is the cherry on top.”
