Windjammers versus Shipbuilders: Who will sink first?Camden Hills, Morse square off in June 11 postseason doubleheader
Rockport — For fans of Camden Hills lacrosse, regardless of whether it is boys or girls, should prepare for a playoff doubleheader festival fest as both Windjammer squads have earned regional postseason berths and will play the same opponent, the same day on the same field — albeit at different times.
