Tuesday, February 12, 2013 - by Special To The Chattanoogan.com

SOUTH PITTSBURG -- Winning for visiting high school athletic teams in this small town has never been easy.  For sure, not in football.  Prevailing in basketball isn't much better.

But the Sale Creek Pantherettes made the long trip here on Tuesday night and battled a tough South Pittsburg team before the visitors headed back home with a 65-51 victory, a win that gives Sale Creek a 10-2 record in 6-A and one that creates a three-way tie for first with Van Buren County and Whitwell.

Erin Hill had another outstanding game as she poured in 28 points.  She also snagged 11 rebounds while blocking five shots and dishing out five assists.  Teammate Krissy Hodge finished with 11 points.

Kelsea Wilson was tops for South Pittsburg with 18 points.

Sale Creek is now 20-4 overall with a 16-game winning streak.  McEwen Gym at Sale Creek will be hosting the District 6-A tournament which starts later this week and concludes with the girls' consolation and championship game on Monday and the boys' consolation and championship game on Tuesday.  Game times for both are 6 and 7:30.
