Prep Roundup: No. 1 Camas girls top No. 3 Tahoma

Union boys beat Kelso at MLK Basketball Tribute in Longview


In what the Camas girls basketball team hopes is a preview of the state tournament, the Papermakers traveled to Tacoma on Monday and won a clash between two of the best teams in Class 4A.

Addison Harris scored 20 points as the No. 1-ranked Papermakers beat No. 3 Tahoma 73-53 at the Puget Sound Holiday Classic.

Leading 37-33 at halftime, the Papermakers clamped down on defense in the second half. Tahoma point guard Hope Hassmann, a Cal-State Fullerton signee, was help to nine points.

“They have lots of offensive firepower,” Camas coach Scott Thompson said. “It took us a while to figure out how to get stops. When we get in those moments we tend to solve our issues by unleashing Parker Mairs on the problem. Today, she did a fantastic job against one of the best point guards in state, and really changed the game completely.”

On offense, Camas used its superior ball movement to generate high-quality shots. The Papermakers shot 57 percent from the field and had 25 assists on 30 field goals.

Sophie Buzzard had 15 points and Riley Sanz added 14 points. Kierra Thompson had 12 points and 12 assists.
