The Camas High School girls soccer team completed its storybook season by winning the state championship trophy.

“We’re indestructible, undefeated,” said defender Marley LeFore, one of 10 seniors on the team.

“Offense wins games, defense wins championships,” she added. “Our offense won the game for us, but our defense won the whole thing. Only letting in two goals all year, that’s record breaking. It’s nice to leave that legacy.”

The Papermakers defeated West Valley, Yakima, 3-0 Saturday, at Sparks Stadium in Puyallup. They mustered up all the strength they had left to hoist up the big trophy and chant the Camas fight song.

“Singing together and coming together as a group, and that giant big hug at the end,” said co-captain Sabine Postma. “It was amazing.”

Head coach Roland Minder watched the celebration with a big smile on his face. He said this is the best high school soccer team in Camas history.

“Best team, the closest team, best chemistry and performance wise in every aspect. I am so proud of all of them.”
