Coach’s comment: Lucia Barroso is our softball Eagle of the week. Lucia is a freshman playing varsity. She has a terrific, positive attitude every day that shows her teammates how much she enjoys playing the game.  She has been a regular outfield starter for the team and has shown flashes of power with her bat. In the next three years, Lucia will be a big part of the softball program’s success.   – Coach Keith Swank

Templeton High School Girls Tennis

Player: Eagle Emma Zouabe
Sport: Varsity Tennis
Year: Class of 2024

Coach’s comment: Emma had an outstanding season working her way up to finish as the #1 singles player for our varsity team at the end of the season. But Emma’s season is not over just yet! Emma was undefeated in the league this season, she finished 2nd at our Ocean League Individual Playoffs tournament at Hancock College with her first loss to Veteran, Amber Wey of Orcutt Academy. Emma finished in the top 6 of our Ocean League Individual tournament to qualify to the Area tournament between the top 6 of Mountain Leagues and top 6 Ocean League. Emma went into the area tournament with a first-round bye, to bring her 2nd round vs. the No. 3 seed for Mountain of Carmen Joines of SLOHS, where she defeated her 7-5, 6-3 to qualify top 4 to move on to the CIFCS ( Central Section) Sectionals Individual tournament to be held this coming Friday and Saturday, May 28 & 29, at Buchanan HS, Clovis, CA. There she will compete for a top 2 finish to advance on to state. Emma is such a joy on and off the court. She is fun to watch and has great composure on the court.  As a freshman, she already has a great knowledge of the game as she practices and plays in tournaments year-round. (with the exception of C-19 putting a wrench on things!) Emma is a hard worker to perfect her game at practices with her team as well as on her own, also by giving back and helping the youth with lessons, by working at the Templeton Tennis Ranch. As Emma heads to Clovis for this Fri/Sat Sectionals tournament we want to wish her good luck and we couldn’t be more PROUD of her! – Coach Nicol Zundel
