Brindl Langley had 35 kills and 27 digs in two matches as Camas earned a bit of revenge by beating Prairie in four sets to capture the 3A bi-district tournament championship in Auburn.

Camas survived a five-set thriller against Auburn-Mountainview in the seminfinals, winning 23-25, 16-25, 25-22, 25-20, 17-15.

“(Auburn Mountainview) is a good team,” Camas coach Julie Nidick said. “They’ve got a big front line, and they kind of shocked us. But kind of liked what happened to us at district, they got a little complacent. We made some adjustments, by basically changing our whole offense and it worked.”

Amber Corbett had 15 kills as Camas avenged a loss in last week’s district title match by beating Prairie 25-18, 18-25, 25-20, 25-19.

“We beat them; it wasn’t them making mistakes,” Nidick said of Prairie. “Our girls were so focused. They were not going to let what happened at district happen again. I never doubted that we were going to win that match. Even when we dropped that second set, it was just like a bump in the road.”

Prairie reached the title match by beating Enumclaw 25-14, 25-9, 25-20.

Columbia River was eliminated by Capital 25-15, 25-19, 25-20. Hudson’s Bay beat Wilson 25-12, 24-26, 25-11, 29-31, 15-13 before being eliminated by Capital 25-15, 20-25, 29-27, 25-22.
