ALBANY, GA (WALB) - It was a great night for Monroe High School. In front of a sell-out crowd, they swept the Dougherty Trojans.

The girls game ended in a blowout as the Lady Tornadoes defeated Dougherty 77-38. That was their second straight blowout victory in region play.

The boys game was more contentious, but the same result as the Tornadoes defeated Dougherty 54-50.

Monroe will face Chattahoochee County on Tuesday, and on the same night Dougherty will host Cairo.
