Timpanogos and Mountain Crest were two big winners in yesterday's 4A quarterfinals, both knocking off No. 1 seeds. The Timberwolves beat out Bonneville in a tightly contested defensive battle, and senior guard Mercedes Riggs talked about moving on to the semis after the game.

Kartchner talks about the game and her commitment in her own words:
