Maddy Dawson led Newport Grammar with 14 points. Paige Gentry added 10 in the win.
Jaleah Patton had eight to lead Meadowview.
The Warriors saw a huge lead diminish to just four with under a minute to play, but held on for the win 37-32.
Will Woods and Santana Haney each scored 11 points for Newport Grammar.
