PLYMOUTH â€” Despite its youth, Plymouthâ€™s tennis lineup has been able to accomplish some pretty special things on its way to a 5-0 start to the season. On Thursday, though, the Pilgrimsâ€™ inexperience finally caught up with them.
Plymouth was able to take wins on both doubles courts, but the young Pilgrims â€”Â who feature two sophomores and one freshman in their singles lineup â€” were swept by a veteran Warsaw squad at all three singles positions, falling 3-2 to their Northern Lakes Conference rivals in a tennis meet at home at the Mary Beth Hunter Tennis Complex at Centennial Park.
As Week 3â€™s match-ups get under way tonight, Bremen and Culver Community are looking to build on their first wins in Week 2, while Culver Military is hoping to respond from a its first loss, a disappointing 28-20 defeat in a lightning-postponed game at NorthWood Saturday.
