At Hillcrest, the Hillcrest High School girls basketball team held off Skyline 60-55 to extend its win streak to six and add to a tightening 4A District 6 race.

The win leapfrogs defending district champion Hillcrest (9-8, 4-3) past Skyline into third place. Knights coach Alan Sargent said Skyline’s Mattie Olson was in foul trouble and had limited playing time. He added that Hillcrest had a better defensive effort than in the Dec. 19 meeting, which Skyline won 62-45.

“We did a pretty good job on defensive rebounds,” Sargent said. “The first time, we let too many putbacks go.”

Mattie Olson had 18 points, Macy Olson had 12 points and Sophia Anderson added 10 for Skyline (7-8, 3-4), which plays Wednesday at Blackfoot. Trinity Larsen had 16 points and Macey Larsen added 14 for Hillcrest (9-8, 4-3), which hosts District 93 rival Bonneville on Wednesday.
