A Camas gymnast won each event at the district meet, but getting every girl on the team to the state meet for the first time in school history was the ultimate dream come true.

“We worked so hard for this, and our hard work paid off,” said team captain Emily Karkanen. “I’m just so proud of our whole team. We all contributed to the team score.”

The Papermakers collected 170.575 points to win their fourth straight district title. And this time, the district champion goes directly to state instead of having to compete at a regional meet.

“We finally get to show the teams at state what Camas gymnastics has to offer,” said head coach Carol Willson. “We built the program up strong the last four years, and it’s time to go.”
