Rockport — The Camden Hills Regional High School girls freshmen basketball team had a tough go of it record-wise during the 2013-14 season, but progressed nicely throughout the winter against many of the Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference's tough subvarsity squads.

Coached by Kim Kuhn, the Windjammers finished with a 2-14 record.

Team members included Tora Decker-Griffith, Myia Hanson, Beckah Shade, Becca Westbrook, Kate McKenna, Haley Simmons, Mallory Caron, Hanna Galkowski and Kendra Bergelin.

The Windjammers started the season with a freshmen tournament at Camden Hills and hung tough throughout the season, despite only totaling two wins on the year.

“We might not have won all our games and struggled at times, but my girls showed consistent improvement from the start of the season to the end,” said Kuhn. “The girls ended their season on a high note. They played their best game against Gardiner, [which] beat us by 40 points one month prior. Even though we ended up losing by 12 points, my freshmen girls were in the game to the end.”

Kuhn added that the team “had a lot of diverse talent with each girl contributing something special.”

“It's always exciting for me as a coach to get to know each player, understand their potential and watch them develop over the season,” she said.
