By Staff | Jan 03, 2018

It was a banner day to start the 2018 calendar year for the Oceanside and Camden Hills boys — while not as much for their female counterparts — as those four Midcoast high school basketball squads were back in action on Tuesday, Jan. 2.

The boys secured wins as the Mariners bested Winslow 59-47 and the Windjammers 64-51 over Brunswick, while for the girls, the Mariners fell 49-39 to the Black Raiders and the Windjammers 66-34 to the Dragons.

Also in recent court cases, the Oceanside girls went 1-1 in the Capital City Hoop Classic as they posted victories over Cony of Augusta and Maranacook of Readfield on Friday, Dec. 29. Both were non-countable games and do not affect the Heal Point Standings.

The following is a recap of reported results:
