Rockport — The sounds of bouncing basketballs and squeak of sneakers on the wooden floor is a positive sign as Camden Hills Regional High School court student-athletes are back in the game.

After a fall in which only two Windjammer teams — golf and cross country — could participate in interscholastic competition due to the pandemic, which left soccer, field hockey and field hockey squads sidelined, Camden Hills hoopsters continue to work in preparation for official games.

Additionally this winter at Camden Hills, Alpine and Nordic skiers will participate in a handful of events and swimmers will compete in virtual meets, in which they swim alone at the Penobscot Bay YMCA in Rockport and compare times with another opponent to come up with the meet's individual places and team scores.

Windjammer ice hockey will compete in intrasquad practices and games, but probably not face opponents outside their COVID-19-created geographical boundaries unless the pandemic dangers can be mitigated.

Wrestling may get back into competition in late-February, but that is not a guarantee.
