February 28, 2003

GIRLS BASKETBALL



JOHNSTOWN, Pa. - Reserve guard Brandy Swope tied the game on a 3-pointer with a minute left in regulation, and Southern Fulton held Berlin to a single point in overtime as the Indians won the District 5 Class A championship with a 39-35 victory.

Southern Fulton (23-4), coming off the heels of its first Sideling Hill League title since 1983, won its first district crown since 1975.

"They've been outstanding," Indians coach Mark Mellott said. "They've done far more than I expected at the beginning of the year. We lost four starters (to graduation), and these girls really come together."

Swope came in after Bethany Mellott fouled out late in the fourth quarter. On her first trip down the court, Swope made the 3 that tied the game.

The Indians made five foul shots in OT to seal the victory.

Candace Bard powered the Indians inside with 12 points and 12 rebounds.

"We weren't hitting anything outside, and I told them we had to get the ball in," Mellott said. "We got it to Candace, and she took it to them."
