The Chargers (8-12) oppose top-seeded Greenfield School at 3 p.m. Friday on the Kerr-Vance Academy campus in Henderson. The host Spartans face third-seeded Faith Christian of Rocky Mount in the other semifinal game.

Brooke Pearsall led RMA with nine points. The Eagles concluded their season 2-22.

The boys' portion of the tournament also began Tuesday night. Rocky Mount Academy edged rival Faith Christian 62-60 on a buzzer-beating shot in the "play-in" game. The Eagles face regular-season champion Kerr-Vance in one semifinal on Friday.
