Rockport — With the schools separated by about 22 miles and a handful of small coastal towns, the Camden Hills and Belfast girls basketball teams took a few hours on Saturday afternoon to learn a few things about themselves as they met on the court to hone skills for the upcoming regular season.

The Windjammers sailed to an early lead and held the visiting Lions off en route to a 46-20 preseason victory on Saturday afternoon, Dec. 2.

The hosts, who used an aggressive defense to stymie the visitors, led 24-8, 31-8 and 37-12 at the quarter breaks.

Keying the Windjammers were MiAe Dewaard with 12 points; Nicole Brown, eight; Lauren Miller and Mya Wiley, five; Seanna Montgomery, Laticia Billings and Miranda Dunton, four; and Frances Ostensen and Kira Barley, two.

Camden Hills made 4-of-6 free throws (67 percent) and got 3-pointers from Wiley and Billings.

Dewaard scored 10 points, Brown four and Billings drilled a 3-point in the first quarter to give Camden Hills a quick lift and lopsided lead.

The Windjammers also played sturdy defense as they held the Lions scoreless in the second quarter.

For the Lions, Junne Robertson-McIntire and Kayci Faulkingham tallied nine points and Macy Gale two. Belfast made 3-of-4 foul shots (75 percent) and saw Robertson-McIntire net a trey.
