Templeton sophomore Ashlyn Janzen is our Atascadero News and Paso Robles Press Girls North County Basketball Player Of The Year for leading the Templeton Eagles to a 10-14 overall record and 5-5 in the Ocean League. At only 15 years old, Janzen very nearly averaged a double-double and was an absolute menace on the defensive end. The sophomore dominated down low grabbing 15 or more rebounds in seven different games (15 rebounds two-times, 16 rebounds two-times and 17 rebounds 3-times.) while also adding 2.5 steals and a block per game. 

Janzen averaged a steady  9.5 points and 9.5 rebounds per game for the Eagles but would erupt on occasion when the team needed it. Playing primarily power forward, with some time at small forward, Janzen erupted against the Hounds for 14 points and 17 rebounds in a close game the Eagles eventually won. Her single game high in points was 18 while her single game high in rebounds was 17.
