Temple excels as engineer of Thomas’ offense

Dru Temple has been a force for the Thomas Worthington girls volleyball team for three seasons. But it’s the work she’s done in the classroom that helps make her a success on the court.

The senior setter, who had 1,931 career assists after a 27-29, 25-22, 22-25, 25-21, 18-16 win over Worthington Kilbourne on Sept. 28, dreams of a career in engineering.

“The rigorous classes that I’m in, you have to start thinking for yourself and (work on) problem-solving to work around an issue that you have,” Temple said. “That definitely works into athletics because you have to be able to problem-solve on the court and off. It goes vice versa − sports help with school and school helps with sports.”

The engineering department at Ohio Northern is the reason she’s choosing to play for the Division III Polar Bears next season.
