MEDFORD—The South Medford and Crater girls have advanced to the 6A and 5A state tournaments after wins on Saturday night.
The Panthers were led by 20 points from senior Ula Chamberlin and prevailed in back and forth affair with Grant that came down to the wire.
They’ll face top-seed Southridge in the quarterfinals on Thursday at 1:30 p.m.
Crater meanwhile struggled out of the gates against Central, but rode a monster second half from Sydney Gray to put things away.
The Comets will face two-seed Lebanon in the quarterfinals on Thursday at 8:15 p.m.
