Below is a rewind, all in one place, of Tuesday nights highlights and updates from Greenbrier's win over Grovetown, the Evans Lady Knights' victory over Lakeside, and Alcovy's defeat of Evans.

Greenbrier topped Grovetown to advance to the class AAAAAA, region 3 tournament semifinal round and earn a spot in the state playoffs. The Wolfpack face top seed Lakeside Thursday at 8:00 at Evans.
