Keirra Thompson’s career-best 26 points lifted the Camas girls basketball team to a 71-56 win over Union on Friday, helping the No. 1-ranked Papermakers earn the 4A GSHL title outright and top seed to next week’s 4A bi-district tournament.

The second and third seeds are still up for grabs between Union and Skyview ahead of next Tuesday’s regular-season between the two teams. Both teams are tied for second in league.

Brooklynn Haywood netted a game-best 33 points, including 13 in the first quarter when Union raced out to a 24-16 advantage.

SKYVIEW 76, BATTLE GROUND 33 — Jordan Labrador-Hallett hits seven 3-pointers and finishes with 27 points for Skyview.

The win moved Skyview (3-2) into second place in the 4A Greater St. Helens League. The Storm will face Union on Tuesday with the chance to secure the No. 2 seed to the bi-district tournament.

TaRyan Hamstreet had 10 rebounds to lead the Storm, and Charlotte Baker had eight.

Yvette Rosales scored nine points to lead the Tigers.

EVERGREEN 51, KELSO 50 — Kimora Ross came up with a big steal late as Evergreen had to withstand two late attempts by Kelso to conver a game-winning basket in the final seconds.

The win gave Evergreen (15-5, 7-1) the outright league title in the 3A Greater St. Helens League. Kelso was eliminated from postseason contention with the loss.

R.A. LONG 45, FORT VANCOUVER 37 — Alauna Brown scored 10 of her 18 points in the second half as R.A. Long fended off Fort.
