Tornadoes ready for new season

By Robert Hydrick - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Monroe High Tornadoes ended the season with a disappointing loss to Worth County.

Tornadoes head coach Charles Truitt though is not too concerned about that defeat.

That is because for coach Truitt the arrival of the state playoffs means it is a new season.

The coach is telling his team that regular season records are all out the window.

Everyone is in the same boat and that is win or go home.

Monroe's loss drops them to fourth place in the region and earns them a game at fifth ranked and unbeaten Jackson High.

The coach believes his team is mature enough to go on the road and get a postseason win.

Charles Truitt said. "I like our chances. Those kids are hungry. One thing about these seniors I have they don't want this to be last game they play. We had a good practice yesterday. Hopefully, we will have a good practice today."

Monroe has won their last two first round playoff games.

Tornadoes play at 7:30 p.m. Friday night in Jackson.
