“Monroe County is a very athletic team and they handled everything we threw at them,” T.R. Miller head coach Greg White said. “I thought my team played hard, but we just didn’t play very good. We did not serve well and we were pretty bad in serve receive. It was the fourth game of the season so we are not going to panic because we lost a game. We will go back to work and prepare for a big area game Monday against Opp.”
