The Buccaneers were fifth after the qualifying round, which moved them into the quarterfinals. There they knocked off a familiar foe —Zeeland — by a score of 1,489-1,408.
Grand Haven moved on to the semifinals, where they edged out Howell, 1,399-1,371.
That set up a state championship showdown against Detroit U-D Jesuit, which scored a 1,409-1360 victory over Grand Haven.
