TRM varsity 2, Flomaton 0
Against Flomaton in varsity action, T.R. Miller won 25-16 and 25-19.
In game one, Miranda McNamara led with eight straight service points followed by five from Taylor Guthrie. Guthrie added six kills and four blocks in the win. Leah Brundidge had five service points and five kills.
In game two, Amber Nelson had six straight service points, seven kills and three blocks while Guthrie had three points, five kills and three blocks.
“I thought we really came out and played with some enthusiasm against Flomaton,” White said. “We always have great games with Flomaton and this one was no different. I believe we were able to pull away at the end of both games because of our aggressive play at the net. Our hitters did a nice job of hitting the ball and putting pressure on their defense and forcing errors.”

Against Baldwin County, T.R. Miller lost 25-14 in games one and two.
In game one, Haley Brown had eight service points and six assists and Nelson had three kills.
In game two, Brown had five points and six assists while Lauren Ward had three points and four assists. Amber Nelson had four kills.
“We knew going in that Baldwin County was going to be one of the best teams that we will see in the regular season and we didn’t handle it very well,” White said. “Baldwin County played well and was the more aggressive team. We kind of sat back and played defense instead of getting after it and playing offense. We were not very good at all in serve receive. We had too many errors in serve receive and that really put us in a hole in both games. Hopefully we can take this loss and learn from it and prepare ourselves better in the future.”
