Templeton volleyball clinches at least a share of first-ever LPL title

In front of its home crowd on senior night, the Templeton High girls volleyball team accomplished school history with 3-0 win over second place Nipomo on Thursday night. The Eagles clinched at least a share of their first-ever Los Padres League title.

"They've been working really hard, you know we all have. And it just feels really good to see that come together," said Templeton head coach Jodi Kelly.

Despite trailing in each set, the Eagles beat the Titans 25-18, 25-23 and 25-22 to improve to 10-0 in league and 13-1 overall. Nipomo fell to 7-2 in LPL action and 13-2 overall.

"It's so special. I'm so proud of my teammates they did great. And the fans were awesome and everything just went well. And Nipomo they're a great team," said senior setter Sydney Roth, who tallied 29 assists, 2 kills, 3 aces and 7 digs.

Heather Fields and Autumn Russell led the Eagles with 12 kills apiece. Carly Roth fired off 6 kills along with 3 blocks and Mari Stewart served 5 aces and 16 total points in the match.

Senior libero Lindsey Wyatt led the Eagles with 21 digs.

"We just put it all out on the floor, we were all in, all out, all right there and every single player was a part of it," said Fields, who added 9 digs.

The Eagles can clinch the outright championship with one win in their next two LPL matches. Templeton plays at Cabrillo next Tuesday and at Santa Ynez on October 30.

Nipomo, which remains in second place, returns to action next Tuesday at home against Santa Maria. The Titans were led by Taylor Nevitt's 10 kills and 9 from Paige Waymire and Kiana Worth. Cristina Ozzimo had 26 assists and 6 aces.
