The 2023 spring regular season is almost over, and the Camas High School (CHS) Girls Varsity Volleyball team is preparing for the state tournament. They are confident going into the postseason, and the team is excited to test their skills against other high-level teams.

The team is undefeated in their regular season games so far this season. Their current overall record is 10-0, with a conference record of 3-0. They won seven of their ten games without losing a set. This includes all three conference games, and they are on track to be the undefeated 4A Greater St. Helens League champions.

“Our team is undefeated so far, and so far this season, we have been working very hard preparing for the postseason,” senior Mia Thorburn said. 

As the postseason comes nearer and nearer, the team is training very hard to prepare for the state tournament. Coach Michelle Ford is incredibly proud of how the girls have been playing so far this season, but she knows they will need to work hard to win the state championship. 

“We have to work for it, and it’s up to the girls on how hard they’re going to work and bringing that competitive side to it,” Ford said.

According to Max Preps, the CHS Girls Varsity Volleyball team is ranked second in the Washington Class 4A state rankings. The only team ranked higher than them is the Puyallup High School Varsity Girls Volleyball team. These two teams have already played in a tournament during the preseason, and the PHS team came out on top.

“We like to say ‘we are each other’s toughest competition,’ and every day in practice, we push each other and make each other better,” Thorburn said, “the postseason is going to be big for us, and I can’t wait to see how this season ends.”

Although riding high, the team still works hard during practice to improve themselves. They know they still have a lot to work on in preparation for the state tournament. Senior Addison Harris said the girls have been working on their court communication and ball control during practice.

“Our culture is like we are a family. We all help each other out. We are sisters. We keep each other accountable, and we push each other hard at practice,” Ford said.
