BELFAST — It has been a strange season thus far for Camden Hills swimmers as the high school pool student-athletes from Rockport have had their home pool unavailable for recent practices or meets, and competitions postponed due to inclement weather and a variety of other reasons.

However, through it all the small group of talented, experienced Windjammers have forged ahead as they prepare for the rest of the regular season and the larger postseason meets in January and February.

In recent days, the Windjammers have practiced in the Belfast Area High School pool, thanks to the support of Lion coaches Bob Winslow and Betsy Bradley, along with school athletic director Matt Battani, after their home pool at the Penobscot Bay YMCA was inoperable due to a power issue caused by recent inclement weather.

In fact, the Windjammers were to host George Stevens Academy on Friday, Dec. 30, first at the Pen Bay YMCA, but that meet was moved to BAHS and then postponed by the Eagles of Blue Hill.

So Camden Hills, which has a handful of girls and a few boys, will get back in their home pool this week and back into competition soon.

The Windjammer girls are multi-talented and are the defending state Class A champions.

The Windjammers, who have only had one meet thus far this winter, are under the director of coach Mark McCluskey, a former Camden Hills and college swim standout.
