(Rensselaer, IN) - The girls' basketball team from South Central High School has advanced to the regionals, but Rensselaer Central didn't make it easy.

Playing on their home floor, Rensselaer Central pulled to within one point after sinking a pair of free throws.


The Satellites hit both free throws to regain a three-point lead and hung on when their opponents could not attempt a three-point shot before the final buzzer.


"The girls really fought hard and battled. They deserved that one," Anderson said. 

South Central is ranked No. 1 in Class 2A, while Rensselaer Central was No. 13 ranked in the state for Class 2A.


The Satellites take on Andrean at 11 a,m. Saturday in the regionals at Winamac.
