As is usually the case the seniors start the game, that can have an odd effect on a team and get them out of sync and that is precisely what happened to Camden Hills as Cony (0-17) gave the Windjammers much more of a game than they expected with the Windjammers taking a 58-44 win. The game at times was much closer than the score indicated.

With 3:38 left in the first quarter Camden Hills had an 8-0 lead led by senior Julia Holt who had six of those points including 4-of-4 from the foul line.

Camden Hills led after each quarter, 10-2, 24-10 and 42-29 heading into the final quarter of play.

The Windjammers were 19-of-26 (73 percent) from the foul line and they had one 3-pointer from Dostie.

For Cony, Lauren Murray had 15 points; Sidney Avery andOlivia Varney eight each; Allee Cloutier and Emma Whitney four each; Mackenzie Lewis three; and Sarah Caron two.

Meanwhile, Camden Hills sits in seventh place in the Maine Principals' Association Heal Point Standing's with no place to go but up. A win over Lawrence would likely move them ahead of Waterville into sixth place. Camden Hills goes into the game at 11-6 while Lawrence is currently 10-6.
