The Panthers finished the EWC dual season with a 9-0 record and ended the regular campaign at 12-2. PHS also defeated Stevens Point Pacelli in the quad meet, 5-2.

Roncalli was the three-time defending EWC champion coming into this season. PHS led the Jets by only one point in the league standings (one point per EWC match win) heading into the quadrangular.

The Panthers swept the doubles matches to key their crucial win over Roncalli. Plymouth’s No. 2 doubles team of Ben Bachmann and Gabe Binversie won in three sets – bouncing back from a 2-6 loss in the second set with a 6-4 victory in the deciding third.

“All of my varsity players have obviously contributed to this conference title but special thanks goes to my captains, Nick Eggert and Charlie Klimpel, for keeping the team going and the junior varsity players, Owen Henriksen, Tyler Equitz and Adam Hernandez, who stepped in and played when we had missing players,” said PHS head coach Chuck Salibi.

“I am very proud of my entire team.

“I am very grateful to my assistant coach Jeffrey Bachmann who has been a great support to me in this endeavor. We would not have been this successful without him,” Salibi said.

“As I have said all season, I am very proud of the way my young men play. Not only do they have good tennis skills but they have heart and are good sportsmen.”

The Panthers won three of the four singles matches versus Pacelli – Nick Eggert at No. 1, 6-1, 6-2; Cooper Ebbott, No. 2, 6-3, 6-4; and Inigo Acedo-Fernandez, No. 3, 6-2, 6-4.

Plymouth’s two doubles winners in the Pacelli meet were Steven Blend and Matt Primozic at No. 1, 6-1, 6-2; and Bachmann and Binversie, No. 2, 6-2, 6-2.
