In the end, it did not matter who won and lost Wednesday afternoon’s high school cross-country ski meet at Camden Hills, just that the young student-athletes spent time outdoors enjoying a crisp winter afternoon.

That is what host Camden Hills and visiting Hampden Academy Nordic squads did as the Windjammers hosted a dual-meet with the Broncos. The teams split two races, with the Hampden Academy boys winning 16-22 and the Camden Hills girls prevailing 10-28.

Windjammer Erin Pierce and Bronco Evan Piccirillo had the fastest times over the 5.3-kilometer course.

The Windjammer girls earned the top four spots to secure a near-perfect score. In the boys race, Hampden Academy secured the top three spots and Camden Hills filled the next six places, but that was not enough for the hosts to pull out the win.

The girls individual results were: 1, Pierce, CH, 21:58; 2, Jessie Matthews, CH, 22:37.2; 3, Mary Caitlin Parks, CH, 23:04.5; 4, Jamie Burgess, CH, 23:38.7; 5, Elena Cravens, HA, 24:38.1; 6, Molly Howe, HA, 24:59.4; 7, Sophie Lataille, HA, 25:37.7; 8, Emma Conover, CH, 25:56.7; 9, Jackie Merrill, CH, 27:15.1; 10, Rebecca Gray, CH, 27:36.6; 11, Sarah Scott, CH, 27:54.9; 12, Abby White, CH, 28:21.7; 13, Jenn Fortin, HA, 30:43.9; 14, Juli Hidu, HA, 30:49.7; 15, Sarabeth Miller, HA, 31:42.9; 16, Jolly Brown, CH, 33:52.1; 17, Claire Horne, CH, 34:53.8; 18, Liz Pedersen, HA, 36:38.6; 19, Abby Sherburne, HA, 37:44.3; and 20, Lexie Larrabee, HA, 41:11.3.
