All 12 players from Camden Hills contributed to the win with every player scoring. However, the highlight of the game for the Windjammers had to be the defensive play of the entire team, but most notably freshman Kristina Kelly. Her speed and quickness make for a nightmare for the opposing players trying to get the ball across half court. In now 16 years of covering Camden Hills and Camden-Rockport high schools there has not been a defender like Kelly since the days of Anna Somo and Diedre Beveridge putting so much pressure on the opponent.

The Windjammers got off to a slow start taking a 9-7 first quarter lead, and then they outscored Mount View 17-0 in the second quarter for a 26-7 halftime lead. By the end of the third quarter, Camden had a 42-17 lead and cruised through the final stanza.

The Windjammers were 5-of-9 (56 percent) from the foul line and they knocked down four 3-pointers, two from Messer and one each from Morse and Billings.
