Facing off against new area opponent Opp Monday, T.R. Miller’s JV and varsity teams swept the Bobcats to improve their records.
The varsity won 3-0 to move to 4-1 overall this season while the JV won 2-0 to move to 6-2.
“Today’s win was a total team effort,” TRM head coach Greg White said. “We had 11 players on the bench and each girl contributed to our success in some way. We had an advantage on the net, and we did a good job of utilizing it.”
We served the ball extremely well and had several big serve rallies throughout the match, he said.
“This was a huge victory for us because it puts us 2-0 in the area with only one area game to play later in the season. Our team goal is to win the regular season area championship and to host the area tournament at the end of the regular season. Today’s win put us one step closer to accomplishing that goal.”
