No. 18 Grants Pass pulled the mini upset on the road against No. 15 Glencoe, 51-39. The Lady Cavers will travel to play two-seed Tigard in the round of 16.

At the 5A level, the Crater girls overcame a big night from South Albany’s Katie Mayhue and used a come-from-behind effort in the second half to win 43-31. The Comets face No. 7 Wilsonville on Friday with a chance to get to the final eight.
