After dropping its first match of the regular season in lopsided fashion April 11, the Camden Hills girls lacrosse team had 12 days to digest its 19-7 loss to the Gardiner Tigers heading into the squad's April 23 game against host Lincoln Academy.

At the conclusion of Tuesday's match, the Windjammers' first loss was nothing more than a distant memory as Camden Hills celebrated its initial victory of the spring, a 17-3 decision over the hosts.

Kristina Alex, Lea Smith and Kiera Haining each scored three goals to lead the balanced Windjammer attack, while Hannah Brownawell and Zia Sulick both added two and Caroline Matteo, Grace Hayward, Addie Bragg and Alice Flint all one.

For Lincoln Academy, Tess Fields, Eliza Cole and Lauren Gildersleeve scored one goal.

Cailand Sweeting played in goal for the 'Jammers (1-1) and had more than a dozen "incredible saves and continues to impress everyone," said Camden Hills coach Amy Gertner.

"[Our] defense was working on their communication this game and I thought they did this very effectively," Gertner said. "The rain and cold temps were very difficult for both teams, but every player displayed good sportsmanship even in dreary weather."
