The Temple Baptist Christian School volleyball team wrapped up their season on Saturday with a runner-up finish in a tournament in Louisville, Kentucky.  The Lady Eagles finished the tournament with a record of 5 and 2 with both losses coming to eventual tournament champion Faith Christian out of Elizabethton, Kentucky.  Temple finishes the year with an overall record of 32 and 7.

The Lady Eagles, who do not lose a player to graduation, were 2 and 1 in pool play on Friday before advancing to the finals on Saturday.  In pool play, Temple got wins over Bluegrass Christian and Belmont to go with a loss to Faith.  The Lady Eagles were 3 and 0 entering the tournament finals including a win over Faith Christian in the semifinals of the double elimination tournament.  Temple defeated Anchored Christian, Landmark Christian and Faith on the road to the finals.  In the finals, Temple lost in 3 sets 16-25, 25-20 and 21-25.

All 7 of Temple’s losses on the year came in tournament play.  The Lady Eagles were led this weekend in kills by junior Rachel Butler who is the only upperclassman on the team.  Freshmen Lexie Stewart and Lauren Davis led the team in assists.  Fellow freshmen Grace Butler and Brooke Clark were among the team leaders in kills.
