Amidst a slew of postponed high school baseball, softball and tennis matches Monday afternoon, one of the only local sporting events on the docket actually played despite the soggy conditions was a rare gem in girls tennis as two undefeated squads took the courts inside the confines of the Midcoast Recreation Center.

Host Camden Hills and visiting Waterville are among the top teams in Eastern Class B and squared off in what could be future league and regional playoff matches.

In the end, it was the Windjammers who proved better as they stayed undefeated with a 4-1 win over the Purple Panthers. Monday’s match marked only the second time in nine victories the Windjammers lost a singles or doubles match, as Camden Hills has won seven of its contests 5-0.

While Camden Hills won Monday’s match, the Windjammers may have lost more in the long run as talented first singles player Emma Blakeley suffered an arm injury during her match, according to Windjammer coach Karen Brace. The veteran coach said the injury “hampered her tennis significantly” and she “will have to rest her arm for upcoming matches for the [remainder] of the week.”

Emma Blakeley also was one of two Camden Hills girls tennis players to qualify for the Maine Principals’ Association state singles tournament, which begins Friday, May 27 at Bates College in Lewiston. Her status for the singles tournament remains, much like her status for the rest of the week, up in the air.

The individual results from Monday’s regular-season Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference Class B match, with Windjammers listed first, were: In singles, E. Blakeley lost to Colle O’Donnell, 5-8; Carissa English beat Olivia Lopes, 9-7; and Abby Blakeley beat Jayme Saulter, 8-1.

In doubles, Camilla Walker and Christine Forcillo defeated Lexi Russo and Lauren Hallenbeck, 8-1; and Erika Alex and Kayla Hart beat Brittany Saulter and Emily Dufour, 8-1.

Camden Hills (9-0, 89.9306 points) is first in the MPA Heal Point Standings for Eastern Class B. The region has 15 teams.
