Lewiston — The No. 4 Camden Hills girls tennis team’s state championship bid came to a halt on Saturday morning, June 2 as the Windjammers came up on the rocks, metaphorically speaking, in a 4-1 Class A North semifinal playoff loss to top-ranked and unbeaten Lewiston.

With the win, Lewiston (14-0), which has won the Class A North final two of the last three years, advances to the regional title match on Wednesday, June 6 against No. 2 Brunswick (13-1), the winner of last year’s regional crown.

Camden Hills, which defeated Mount Blue 5-0 in the quarterfinal round, saw its season conclude at 10-4.

The individual results, with Camden Hills players listed first, were: In singles, Kassie Krul beat Abby Svor, 6-1, 6-4; Naomi Landry lost to Julia Svor, 2-6, 0-6; and Chloe Fordyce lost to Roslynn Wailus, 6-4, 5-7, 6-7.

In doubles, Claire Pierce and Kaylyn Krul lost to Molly Chicoine and Maddy Foster, 3-6, 3-6; and Eliza Brown and Celine Barden lost to Jill Pelletier and Amy Sperandio, 4-6, 0-6.

The Windjammers also lost to the Blue Devils 5-0 during a regular-season match.
