T.R. Miller Lady Tiger head coach Greg White said his team played well.
“The girls played a very good game defensively,” he said. “We need to improve our hitting a little, but that’s why we are working this summer. As far as effort and enthusiasm, I couldn’t ask for much more. They have been working very hard this summer and hopefully it will pay off next spring. We are going to get back to work and get ready for our tournament that we are hosting next week on June 26.”
