The Jets behind Logan Parsons' 32 points defeated the Golden Eagles 71-57, while the Lady Jets' 17-game winning streak ended with a 62-58 loss to the Lady Eagles.

CCHS 71, Rhea County 57: Parsons added his name to the Jets' list of players who have scored more than 1,000 points for his carreer, hitting 32 points on 12 of 19 from the field and six of eight from the charity stripe with eight rebounds and one assist.

Four Rhea County players were in double figures — Noel Patterson (11), Bryan Harrison (11), Dimitrlus Patterson (13) and Lee Hill (12).

Parsons and Smith had five points each in the first quarter to give the Jets a 13-8 lead, but Rhea County finished the quarter with a 5-0 run to tie the game at 13-13.

Parsons and Christopher scored seven second-quarter points to help the Jets outscore the Golden Eagles 25-11 for a 38-24 lead at the break.

Rhea County 62, CCHS 58: The Lady Eagles started the game with a 6-2 lead, but a three-point play by Gina Dick with 5:26 left in the first quarter to slice the lead to 6-5.

The hosts finished the quarter with an 8-2 run for a 14-7 lead, as the Lady Jets were three of 14 from the field with six turnovers.

The Lady Eagles hit six of 11 from the field to outscore the Lady Jets 14-7 to tie the game at 40-40 at the end of three quarters. CCHS was three of 13 from the field with six turnovers, caused by a pressing Rhea County defense.

Three-point baskets by Destiny Carlton and Makenzie Iles gave the Lady Jets a 46-42 lead, but the Lady Eagles hit eight of eight free throws in a 17-7 run for a 59-53 lead with 35.3 seconds left in the game.

A Dick trey cut the gap to 59-56, but the Lady Eagles finished the quarter with a 3-2 run for the victory.

This wasn't one of the best games offensively for the Lady Jets, as they were 19 of 55 from the field and 10 of 15 from the free throw line with 21 turnovers.

Statistical leaders for the Lady Jets were Iles (17 points, five rebounds), Dick (19 points, seven rebounds, two assists, four steals), Alli Hyder (two points, three rebounds), Carlton (10 points, six rebounds, two assists, six steals), Victoria Lee (seven points, eight rebounds, one assist, two steals), Rebecca Teeple (one rebound) and Klaire Varney (two points). Skylar VanWinkle, Kelsie Eldridge and Courtney Smith also played.

The ninth-ranked Lady Jets fell into a four-way tie for first place in the district at 2-1 with Rhea County, White County and Cookeville. Warren County is fifth at 1-2, with SMHS at 0-3.

Schedule: CCHS hosts SMHS Friday and will travel to Cleveland Saturday. The CHS games will be played at Cleveland Middle School due to the closure of the high school gym late in 2013.
