It was closer than the defending Class AAA champion North Marion Huskies might have liked, but in the end they are another step closer to Charleston.

The Huskies held off Preston in the opening game of the Class AAA, Region I, Section 2 tournament Wednesday in Rachel, 61-54.

Paige Tuttle led the Huskies with a game-high 28 points and Danielle Fluharty added 13.
