[Lauren Kaiser] "is there a way to say these 5 clips are all camera one and these 4 clips are camera 2 and have it match them all up to sound track as close as possible? "

Based on your description you have 2 issues - one of your three cameras has no sound (and I'm assuming no timecode) and you have multiple takes per camera.

Select the clips from the browser that come from the 2 cameras that have audio on them - when you make your multicam clip Ppro will put each clip on it's own track, which is not what you want. However you can easily open up the multicam timeline (multiclips are specialized nested timelines) and drag all of your Camera A clips to track 1 and then all of your camera B clips to track 2 (remember to consolidate your audio tracks as well.) So even if Ppro originally gave you a multicam with 9 tracks, it's very easy to reduce that down to the 2 tracks for 2 cameras. Then you will have to manually place the clips from your third camera on track 3 and sync them as best you can by eye.
