The Camden Hills girls lacrosse team is off to a hot start to the spring season, as the Windjammers hosted Morse of Bath on Thursday afternoon, May 2 on Don Palmer Field.

The Windjammers (3-1) controlled play in the first half and stood pat in the second en route to a 12-10 win over the visiting Shipbuilders (1-2).

Leading the Windjammers scoring attack were Alice Flint and Lea Smith with three goals apiece, while Addie Bragg added two and Addie Drinkwater, Hannah Brownawell, Kaia Allwine and Kristina Alex each one.

Windjammer first-year coach Amy Gertner said Cailand Sweeting held her own in goal and “was protected by unwavering defense thanks to Haley Williams, Sarah Scott, Zia Sulick and Hannah Wincklhofer.

“They communicated and supported each other beautifully,” the coach said. “I couldn't have asked for stronger defense today.”

The coach said the Windjammer offense ran “very well and the precision of our passing was the best I've seen so far this season.

“They were on their 'A' game today and the girls showed amazing determination,” Gertner said. “They never gave up even when the score was close. I really felt proud to be a part of it all.”

Camden Hills led 6-3 after the first half of play and were outscored 7-6 in the second half. Individual information on Morse was unavailable.
