ROCKPORT — The Camden Hills boys tennis team will be playing in and hosting the Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference Class A championship. 

The exhibition title match will be held Tuesday, May 28 at 4 p.m. in Rockport and will pit the host Windjammers against Lewiston. 

Camden Hills boasts a perfect 12-0, while Lewiston possesses an 11-1 record. 

The Blue Devils suffered its lone loss at the hands of the Windjammers earlier this season 4-1 in Rockport. 

This is the final academic year KVAC championships are being played in several sports sponsored by the conference, a decision made at the conference’s March meeting and exclusively reported by penbaypilot.com. 

At the meeting, athletic directors representing the conference’s 28 schools heard a proposal that would eliminate conference championship contests in soccer, field hockey, basketball, ice hockey, baseball, softball, tennis and lacrosse.

Though the conference championship events crown conference champions in the aforementioned sports, the results of the games do not impact a team’s overall seasonal record or the amount of heal points used to determine playoff rankings.

The motion was passed with 20 schools in favor of eliminating the games, four opposed and three abstaining.

Though the conference has 28 members, only 27 were present at the March meeting. Mount Blue was not at the meeting, according to minutes from the meeting.
