BREMEN â When Bremen tennis coach Andrew Rohde first heard about the âSmash Cancerâ fundraising program at the Indiana High School Tennis Coaches Associationâs Indiana Tennis Convention last winter, his thoughts immediately went to Plymouth.
It turns out Plymouth coach Michael Delp was also thinking about Bremen for a fundraising event.
The win went in the record books for Plymouth, but the real winner at Wednesdayâs tennis meet between the Pilgrims and the Lions was the battle against cancer.
PLYMOUTH â Analyzing a loss on the road last week has been simple for Plymouth Rockies head coach John Barron and his staff.
âWhat we saw on film was really everything we saw live,â said Barron. âThey made some big plays at critical times, and we had trouble tackling in the open field.â
Binkley and Argos down Plymouth
The Argos boys soccer team ran out to an early 3-0 lead en route to a 6-2 defeat of area rival Plymouth at home at Eugene Snyder Field Wednesday night.
Dominic Cataldo scored on a Sean Mullaney assist in the third minute, Damon Binkley followed with a goal on a Cataldo assist in the eighth minute, and Binkley notched his second of three goals on a Josiah Osborn helper in the 15th minute.
Blake Milliser put Plymouth on the board with an unassisted strike in the 30th minute to leave the Rockies trailing by a 3-1 margin at the half.
CULVER â Coming into Tuesday nightâs match with area rival Argos on the heels of a disappointing conference-opening loss to Triton last Thursday, the Culver Community volleyball team set a goal to put away the Dragons in three games.
The Lady Cavs jumped off to a fast start in the opening game and never once surrendered the lead, although Argos did tie the game up on four separate occasions. By the third set, the hosts had seemed to take some of the wind out of the Dragonsâ sails, and Culver claimed a 25-22, 25-19, 25-15 win at home at John R. Nelson Gymnasium.

PLYMOUTH â Despite its youth, Plymouthâs 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 âÂ 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 3âs 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.
