The Camden Hills softball team appears to be gaining more confidence every time it takes the field. That seemed to be the case Monday afternoon in Rockport, as the Windjammers welcomed visiting Leavitt of Turner to town for a regular-season contest.

The Windjammers (2-0) jumped to a 2-0 lead in the second inning and never trailed as they continued their hot start by doubling up visiting Leavitt 8-4.

Hayley Buckheit (2 hits, 2 RBIs) led the Windjammer offense, while Olivia Hamalainen (hit, 2 RBIs) Kara LeGage (hit) and Abby White (hit) also contributed for the hosts.

Kendra Ray (2 hits, RBI) paced the Hornets, while Emily Murphy (2 hits), Adrianna Newton (two hits), Taylor Ells (hit, RBI), Shannon Clark (hit), Katie Budek (hit), Tori Zupancic (hit, RBI) and Kayla Richardson (hit, RBI) also contributed to the offense.

Buckheit went the distance for Camden Hills from the pitching circle, allowing 11 hits, while not walking a batter, with five strikeouts. Newton toed the rubber for Leavitt, allowing five hits and six walks, while striking out eight.

Camden Hills jumped to a 2-0 lead in the second inning and, after the Hornets tied the game in the top of the fifth frame, the Windjammers responded with a four-run inning to jump ahead 6-2. The Windjammers tallied two more insurance runs in the bottom of the sixth inning.
