It was the third year in a row for the local team to win its division. After defeating Scan Basketball, of Portland, 11 to 8 in the semifinals, the Heat beat West Basketball, of Vancouver 10 to 7.
“I love representing Camas at these tournaments,” Tanner Fogle said after the championship game. “We wear the Camas red with pride.
“Three-peat baby!” he added. “Three-on-three basketball is my favorite thing about summer.”
Overall, the Camas Heat outlasted 15 teams in the sixth grade division to claim the championship. In addition to Fogle, the team consists of Logan Miller, Alex Glikbarg and Zach Leonard. Leonard, of Portland, filled in for Bryan Nguyen, who was not available for the weekend tournament at Vancouver Landing.
