The Wolves entered as the No. 1 seed in both brackets, while North Hall was No. 2 in both brackets and each cruised to the championship, each team winning two matches 3-0, 3-0.

In round one, the Trojans swept West Hal, including wins came at No. 2 singles from Jackson Davis 6-0, 6-0, at No. 1 doubles from Matt Booth and Paxton Gillespie, 6-0, 6-0, and at No. 2 doubles from Houston Smith and Josh Tu -- the pair playing in their first region tournament match -- 6-1 6-1.

The Trojans (16-3) then took out White County in the semifinals, including wins for Davis 6-1, 6-2, No. 3 singles player Dalton Patterson, 6-2, 6-2, and for No. 2 doubles players Dawson Smith and Reid Lattanzi, 6-3, 6-3.
