The No. 1 girls double team of Katie Brown and Alli Haynes of West also posted a shutout, but the top-seeded boys doubles team of Daniel Frentzel and Justin Wolfe of South were tested in a 6-3, 6-4 defeat of Dimond's Alex Ahn and Chad Balmes.

The top-seeded mixed doubles team of Palden Flynn and Bryce Foster of South plays its first match in Saturday's semifinals.
