“Last season our goal was to make it to state, and we did as the No. 4 team from the South,” said Peacock. “This season making it to state was not enough for this team. We were able to win the No. 3 spot for the South at super regionals. We were also aspiring to win Round 1 at state. This team has left a lot for upcoming teams to strive for. We appreciate all the support from the community. Our fans and parents were outstanding this season.”

Leading the Lady Tigers was Taylor Austin with seven kills; and Allie Nelson and Mallori Floyd with six kills each.

Miller finishes its season 15-8.
