Two goals down, more to go for the Skyview girls basketball team.

After finishing the 4A Greater St. Helens League season unbeaten, the Storm won the district title Tuesday with a 69-38 victory over Camas.

Skyview opens bi-district play at home Thursday against the loser of Tahoma vs. Emerald Ridge, which is the No. 8 seed from the South Puget Sound League. Tip off is at 7 p.m.

"The next game is the best opponent we'll have faced all year," Skyview coach Jennifer Buscher said. "That's how we've approached each game all year."

The Storm, ranked No. 4 in the Associated Press 4A state poll, dominated Camas from the start. Skyview hit four 3-pointers in building a 24-11 lead after the first quarter.

"The intensity was high," Buscher said. "But now every game means a little more."

Stephanie McDonagh scored 13 of her team-high 15 points before halftime, when Skyview led 39-22. Gen Lo added 12 points and Aubrey Ward-El had 11.

Nikki Corbett scored 15 points for Camas, which enters bi-district as the GSHL's No. 2 seed. The Papermakers will travel to play Kentridge, the No. 5 team from the SPSL at 7 p.m.
