After losing the district title to Prairie by one point, the Camas volleyball players were not going to let that happen again.
“When our girls knew they had another shot at Prairie, in their minds they were not going to lose to them again,” said Camas head coach Julie Nidick. “Prairie is a great team, but on this day, we were the better team. It was our mistakes that cost us the match against them at districts. My girls were not going to let this one get away from them again.”
The Papermakers played with a chip on their shoulders in the bi-district championship tournament Friday and Saturday, at Auburn Mountainview High School. After defeating Bonney Lake and Capital Friday to qualify for state for the eighth year in a row, Camas rallied back from two sets down to defeat Auburn Mountainview in five.
Brindl Langley led the comeback effort with 19 kills and 17 digs. Joy Richter added 12 digs, Sydney Schwartz had 11 kills and Amber Corbett chipped in with 10 kills.
“Our games against Auburn were some of the best we played the whole weekend,” Langley said. “We pulled through when we needed to, and it definitely showed up in the score.”
