Plenty of discussion has been generated through various media outlets for track & field including articles by Flotrack and Runner's World over the past few days on whether or not Alexa Efraimson will turn pro for her senior year of high school and take a similar path as another high school female distance running phenom Mary Cain did this past year in becoming a paid and supported professional runner during her senior year of high school after essentially running a pro circuit schedule of races while training under Nike Oregon Project coach Alberto Salazar as a high school junior but keeping her amateur status.
Matthew Maton closed in a 57 second last lap to run the nation's second fastest time in the 3K with a meet record time of 8:18 at the Oregon Relays, while Alexa Efraimson was able to remarkable make up a 11 second gap on her DMR 1600 meter leg in just the first 900 meters to bring the Camas girls back to a US leading time of 11:54.

For Camas junior Shane Geiger, cross country is more than a race. More than a competition of which runner or team is fastest. For Geiger, it\'s a proving ground. The ultimate competition. \"I\'m very competitive,\" Geiger said. \"I run to win. I have a hard time holding myself back. I want to win, and I want everyone to know that I won when I did.\" That competitive streak has served Geiger well thus far. He placed 30th at the Class 3A state championships last year as a sophomore.
