While the Camden Hills boys basketball team got off to a rough start to the season, the Windjammers have righted the ship the past four games — including a 62-54 road win over Brewer on Saturday, Jan. 6.

The Windjammers are unbeaten in their last four tries and have rocketed up the standings in Class A North.

The Camden Hills girls, however, who recently collected their first win of the campaign, were not as fortunate against the Witches, as they dropped a 66-41 decision in Rockport.
