The Camas High School (CHS) Boys Varsity Basketball team has had a radiant season this year. They go into the postseason with a season record of 12-7 and a league record of 5-2. They will play a series of win or go home games to go to the state playoffs.

Following the amazing season last year, the team is excited to get another shot in the postseason. Last year, the team had their best season ever, placing 6th in state. Although a few key players graduated last year, the team believes they have what it takes to make a good run in state. 

“I think that we could go very deep in the postseason as long as we continue to improve and stay focused,” junior Nyima Namru said. “Our group has a lot of potential if we can put all the talent together.”

The team had a rough start to the season losing three of the first five games. Since then, they have been playing very well, and the team even won the league title with a league record of 5-2. Along with the league title, the CHS Boys Varsity Basketball team is ranked No. 15 in the 4A Washington state rankings. This means that they will have a hard road to the playoffs, but they will have an opportunity to play. 

“I feel that this season is going pretty well! Love playing with this group of guys and am looking forward to what is to come over the next couple of months with the postseason,” junior Jace Vanvoorhis said.

Throughout the season, the players and coaches have been giving it their all to improve and prepare for these upcoming games. They have been working hard during practices and leaving everything out on the court.

“Practices are becoming more and more intense and as a team we are coming closer and closer together,” sophomore Ethan Harris said. “I do believe that we have the potential to go all the way but it will depend on how much we want it.”

Ideally, the extra work will pay off with a good placement in state. The team hopes to make it back to the state playoffs, and they are excited to compete again in the Tacoma Dome later this month.

“I think we have a really good shot at going far like we did last year and playing on the last day of the dome,” Vanvoorhis said.
