    The talk before the finals of the Class AAA Sectional 30 finals last Tuesday (Feb. 16) was that if Charlestown gets to the free throw line they would probably win. They have done well from the free throw line all year, and have continued to do well in the sectional tournament.
    Alicia Zollman was at the line with 7.1 seconds left in the game and het Lady Pirates clinging to a slim 45-43 lead. The senior calmly sank both free throws and gave the team their final 47-43 margin of victory.
    “That was clutch,” said Charlestown coach Tony Hall of the Zollman free throws.
    Crawford County’s Chelsea Jellison had just gotten her Lady Pack to within 45-42 when she swished a three with 11.2 left. Both teams took separate time outs immediately after the Jellison three, setting up the finals free throws by Zollman.
