Camas Varsity #1 headed off to State this past weekend for the 9th consecutive year. After the morning prelims, Camas had the #1 State high score across all divisions and classifications! In the afternoon semi-final round, though, Camas came up just a little short, taking third place in their semi-final room, which qualified them to play for 7th, 8th, or 9th place. Camas did not disappoint in the afternoon’s final round, easily winning the room and a State finish of 7th place. Congrats! Camas Varsity #1 is made up of Jesse Lester, Noah Thompson, Abby Jiang, Monica Chang, Daniel Fan, and Rahul Ram.
On a personal note, I’d like to say how very proud I am of this team and the hard work and sportsmanship they displayed all season long to become one of the most prolific teams Camas has ever fielded. Bravo! And we extend the very best of wishes to our seniors on this team (Lester, Thompson, and Fan) as they conclude their storied Camas knowledge bowl careers spanning the last seven years, all the way from middle through high school. It has been my privilege to watch them grow and mature into the fine young adults they are. Roll, ‘Makers!
