The Camas girls basketball season has ended.

The Papermakers lost 46-40 to fourth-seed Glacier Peak at today’s 4A state basketball championships, being held at the Tacoma Dome in Tacoma, Washington.

The game started unusually early at 9 a.m., but Camas was ready to play and used tough defense throughout the game.

Camas shooters started out hot, hitting from the outside, building a 22-12 lead at one point in the first half.  The sizzling shooting cooled down in the third quarter when the team was held scoreless for six minutes. Camas kept the game close throughout the fourth quarter.

The Papermakers were within two points in the final minutes after junior Jalena Carlisle hit a three-point shot from the left baseline.  Glacier Peak made free throws in the final minute to seal the victory.

Glacier Peak’s 46 points was a season low for the team picked by several Washington sports writers as the girls basketball squad most like to be seeded No. 1 this season.

Camas High junior Faith Bergstrom finished the game with 16 points and eight rebounds.

Camas ends its hard fought season with a 16-12 overall record.
