The Camden Hills basketball teams could not have faced a taller order than to knock off Hampden Academy — the top-ranked teams in Class A North — in a makeup court doubleheader on Thursday, Jan. 18.

In the end, the Windjammer hung with the Broncos in their first halves, but the bucking Broncos showed why they are heralded as the teams to beat in the postseasons as the visitors pulled away in the second half for lopsided high school victories.

The games were pushed back from Wednesday, Jan. 17 due to inclement weather.
