“We couldn’t be more proud of our team or our coaching staff,” Sagerman said. “We appreciate all the love and support we’ve received this season from everyone at Tufts, and we’re so excited to be able to bring this home for the Jumbos.”
Four years ago, the Jumbos lost to Bowdoin in a devastating 3−2 NCAA final. Three years ago, the Jumbos exited in the semifinals. Two years ago, it was the round of sixteen that did them in. Last year, Tufts did not even get a shot at the NCAA tournament.
This year, the only bump in the road came as a 4−1 NESCAC semifinal loss to Bowdoin, and it was evident on Sunday that the Jumbos’ season opener was nothing more to them than a pair of numbers on a stat sheet.
Sometimes, a short memory is the best weapon.
