Plymouth's boys track team celebrates its team championship at its home sectional last week.
TOPEKA â€” Even after its last conference win over LaVille, Bremen wasnâ€™t getting ahead of itself in its sectional opener.
The Lady Lionsâ€™ plan was simply to get on top and stay there, and they executed that game plan to perfection Monday.
Bremen battled back from an early 1-0 deficit with two runs in the bottom of the first, then tacked on another two in the third for a 4-1 cushion en route to a 7-2 tournament-opening victory at the Class 2A Westview Sectional.
