The fourth-seeded Commandos (6-7) won all five singles matches, rendering doubles play unnecessary against the fifth-seeded Blue Devils.

Hendersonville advances to face top-seeded Mt. Juliet on Thursday, May 5, while third-seeded Wilson Central – which defeated sixth-seeded Gallatin by a 4-0 margin on Tuesday – plays second-seeded Beech in the other semifinal.
