“I am proud of our girls and their efforts this season,” Peacock said. “We would have liked a better end result at state, but we came up short against a good team. [Madison Academy] performed well and was the better team today. I am excited our team got the State Tournament experience. It is a place they will remember and strive to make it back to in the future.”

Peacock says she is thankful for the leadership she saw out of her seniors this season.

“Our seniors provided solid leadership and spirit to our team throughout the season,” she said. “We are sad to see them go, but I am confident in our returning players to pick up where they left off.”

Leading the Lady Tigers in blocks was Grace Ruzic and in digs was Steely Ruzic.

This season TRM finished with a 20-2 record. Along the way the team won the area championship and captured their eleventh straight Escambia County Tournament championship.
