BREMEN — Mark Wagner started playing tennis almost by accident as a sophomore in high school.
Nearly 45 years later, the Bremen Assistant Tennis Coach notched his 300th win as the Lions beat Rochester in the first match of their home tourney Saturday.
“It was a big accomplishment because it not only shows his coaching ability but longevity as well,” said Bremen Head Tennis Coach Andrew Rohde.
