â€śThey need a large amount of bandwidth (to cover the area),â€ť said Sammartano to board members.
BREMEN â€” The state tournament is all about surviving and advancing, and thatâ€™s just what Tritonâ€™s girls tennis team did Wednesday.
It wasnâ€™t the Lady Trojansâ€™ best tennis, but it was good enough to secure a 4-1 victory over LaVille in the opener at the Bremen Tennis Sectional at DeSantis Courts.
â€śIt was close because we almost did lose there at the beginning,â€ť said Triton head girls tennis coach Jennifer Potter. â€śYou canâ€™t overlook anybody.
Due to a scheduling conflict, the opening game at the Class 3A Sectional 19 baseball tournament at Plymouth was flip-flopped with a later game at the tourney.
