Neal tennis improves but TRM gets victory

By By BRUCE HIXON Sports Editor
Just like the first time they met, T.R. Miller won seven of nine boys and girls tennis matches against W.S. Neal Monday.
"These matches were a lot more competitive than the first time we played. One of the boys singles matches went three sets and two of the boys doubles matches went to tiebreakers. Most of the girls matches were also good battles although some of the scores may not indicate that," W.S. Neal coach Kraig Rittenhouse said.
T.R. Miller (2-1), which hosted Andalusia Tuesday, is off until March 30 when it travels to Opp for a 4:30 p.m. match. W.S. Neal (0-3) hosts Opp March 29 at 4 p.m.
