Paso Robles High senior outside hitter Tess Rountree has been named our San Luis Obispo County Girls Volleyball Player of the Year. (The football story and all-county team are planned to be published Sunday.) From Saturday’s complete story, which can be found HERE:
The 6-foot senior averaged 4.1 kills per set, which ranked fifth in Division 1A of the CIF-Southern Section. She also was No. 1 in the PAC 7 in hitting percentage, at 28.1 percent, and aces, with 47 in 68 sets (a 0.7 average) while leading Paso Robles through a 21-7 season that culminated with a second-round playoff appearance.
Along the way, the Bearcats swept four-time defending PAC 7 champion Arroyo Grande, and ended up tying the league’s top playoff seed, San Luis Obispo, atop the league standings at 10-2.
In the second milestone victory over the Eagles, Rountree had arguably her best match of the season, with 23 kills (on 50 attempts) in a sweep at home.
A significant factor in Rountree’s overall athleticism at the net was her track and field background.
This past spring, she broke the Paso Robles record in the girls high jump, clearing 5 feet, 6 inches at the PAC 7 championships. She was just a quarter-inch off the 7-year-old meet record in that event.
