The Temple Baptist Christian School hit the road on Thursday as they traveled to Shelbyville to take on the rival Lady Patriots of Victory Baptist Academy. The JV team fell in straight sets 4-25 and 9-25. The varsity team rallied from a 2 set deficit to win in 5 sets by set scores of 13-25, 21-25, 25-12, 25-21 and 15-9.
After dropping the first set, the Lady Eagles cut an early 7 point deficit to 2 in the 2nd set before falling. But that momentum propelled Temple in the final 3 sets. The Lady Eagles finished with 11 service aces led by Lexie Stewart who had 5.
The Lady Eagles will travel to Madison, Alabama on Friday for a 2 day tournament at Madison Baptist Academy’s Tournament. Temple will play pool play games on Friday and the tournament will conclude on Saturday with a tournament bracket.
