Camas golfers swing into postseason

After three consecutive years of finishing second in the state of Washington’s 4A girls golf tournament, the Papermakers say they are determined to claim a championship this season. The Camas girls golf team went undefeated into its final league match of the year against Union on April 30, and wrapped another victory at Camas Meadows, which is home course to both teams.

On April 25, Camas was invited to compete against the 16 best teams in Oregon at the 6A Preview at Quail Valley Golf Course in Banks, Oregon. The Papermakers finished fourth, but Camas head girls golf coach Bob Foster said some of his girls had their worst day of the season at the Oregon tournament. Even so, Camas senior Emma Cox tied for first place with a 74 in windy conditions.

The Papermakers have already started their postseason run with the 4A district tournament this week at Tri-Mountain Golf Course in Ridgefield. Qualifiers will go to bi-districts next week at Golf Mountain Golf Course in Bremerton. The state tournament will be held May 21-22, at Hangman Valley Golf Course in Spokane.
