In Class AAA, all four seeded teams moved on with first-round and quarterfinal triumphs. In AA, three of the four seeded teams made Wednesday's semifinals.

The only upset of a seeded team came in the AA quarterfinals, when the York Catholic team of Nicholas Gingerich and Mason Elliott beat the third-seeded Littlestown duo of Brett Gill and Brandon Staub, 3-6, 6-3, 12-10.

In a AA semifinal match on Wednesday, Gingerich and Elliott will face their teammates from York Catholic, Michael Andrews and Alberto Bruno. Andrews and Bruno are seeded No. 1. Andrews beat Bruno in Monday's AA singles final. The other AA doubles semifinal will pit the fourth-seeded team from York Suburban (Tyr Abendschoen and Tom Platts) vs. the second-seeded team from Gettysburg (Adam Yingling and Zach Kiick).

The AAA semifinals feature the top-seeded team from Dallastown (Holden Koons and Hunter Jones) vs. the fourth-seeded team from Central York (Chris Maderitz and Connor Bacha), while the second-seeded team from New Oxford (Joey Stiles and Josiah Forry) will meet the third-seeded team South Western (Ben Sentz and Gavin Kenny).

Koons, a freshman, won the AAA singles title on Monday over Sentz.
