“We did fall short, but our girls played with true TRM spirit,” Thompson said. “From the first point until the last they competed. In games one and three we fought to stay on the court winning several points with Satsuma at game point. Steely Ruzic and Addi Smith (Libero) did a good job making some big plays on the back row for us. Abigail Cave and Mary Madison Brown did a nice job putting pressure on the Satsuma offense at the net.”

Myra Reiss led the team offensively in assists and kills.

The JV team picked up its first win, winning in straight sets 25-20 and 25-14.
