TRM volleyball sweeps Jay and Excel in tri-match
T.R. Miller’s Lady Tiger volleyball team swept a home tri-match Tuesday with the Excel Panthers and Jay Royals to push their winning streak to five straight wins.
The Lady Tigers defeated Jay 2-1 (25-21, 21-25 and 15-7) and Excel Jay 2-0 (25-12, 25-23) to improve to 13-5 this season. In the game between Jay and Excel, Jay won 2-0 (25-16 and 25-9).
“We did OK today,” T.R. Miller Lady Tiger head coach Greg White said. “We kind of grinded through the Jay game again like we did last week. We just came out on top this time. I thought we had a net presence today and I thought as the game went on, that was the deciding factor. Jay is a very scrappy team and the same way against Excel. We fought well against Excel and did not give many service points away and I thought that was a big thing. We hit the ball well at the net and kept pressure on their defense. It was good to get both of those wins.”
T.R. Miller will play their final home game of the season tonight, Thursday, Oct. 10, against Monroe County. Game time is set for 4:30 p.m. and will be a varsity only game.
T.R. Miller will conclude their regular season Tuesday, Oct. 15 with a road game to Andalusia. Game time is set for 4 p.m. with the JV teams followed by the varsity at 5 p.m.
