Coach’s comment: Bella Backer is the Templeton Varsity Softball player of the week. Bella is a 4-year varsity starter and has proven each year to be one of the best players in the league.

Michael Gilliss

Templeton High School Golf

Player: Eagle Michael Gilliss
Sport: Varsity Softball
Year: Class of 2022

Coach’s comment: Michael was the medalist or low scorer for both teams in a league matchup between THS and Orcutt Academy. His score led the Eagles to a much-needed win that led the team back to their winning ways. Michael worked very hard on his short game and the hard work paid off in dividends when he chipped in for an eagle at Hunter Ranch to help lead his team to victory.  This was his first eagle since he started golfing last year. Michael’s eagle will be the first of many as he has attained a greater level of consistency that will help him anchor the team going into league finals.. – Coach Scott Cramer
