BREMEN â€”Â Was there ever any doubt?
Plymouth grabbed its 15th straight sectional crown Saturday, beating host Bremen 4-1 at DeSantis Courts. The championship represented the programâ€™s 22nd overall.
â€śPlymouthâ€™s just a great team and has a great coach,â€ť said Bremen Head Tennis Coach Andrew Rohde. â€śThey just come out to play every single match. Theyâ€™re a great program so thereâ€™s no shame in losing to Plymouth. Weâ€™re not giving up or anything, weâ€™re going to keep fighting. Our guys came out, and they played well, but Plymouthâ€™s just a better team and they got us today.â€ť
