Lewiston — The Camden Hills ice hockey team consistently plays at a high level on the ice, as is evident by the Windjammers' impressive overall records, league championships and strong regional playoff runs.

However, the Windjammers also try to play the game the right way, which is demonstrated in their consistent strong sportsmanship.

That fact has led to Camden Hills earning the Maine Principals' Association Good Sportsmanship Award for Western Class B for the second straight year.

Camden Hills was presented the banner for the 2013-14 season with an on-ice ceremony at the state Class B ice hockey championship game Saturday, March 8 at the Androscoggin Bank Colisee in Lewiston.

The sportsmanship award is voted on by MPA teams in their respective regions. Each school gets a vote at the end of the season voting for opponents who display good sportsmanship in the sport.

It is the second consecutive sportsmanship award for the Windjammers and the third time in the past six seasons Camden Hills has earned the banner.

Camden Hills has won the award for the 2013-14, 2012-13 and 2008-09 seasons.

“It is always nice to be recognized by your counterparts and opponents that they respect the way you play the game," said veteran Windjammer coach Karl Enroth. "It shows we can play a fast-and-aggressive-style of hockey the right way."
