Ripon Christian’s first stint through the Southern League has become as routine as bumping, setting and spiking.

The Knights swept their sixth straight SL opponent Tuesday, defeating visiting Gustine — 25-9, 25-15, 25-10. The win was also their 12th straight overall, a streak that began on Sept. 10 during the San Luis Obispo Invitational.

Ripon Christian (6-0, 15-4 overall) was led by setter Michelle Terpstra’s nine aces and 20 assists. Twins Morgan and Mikaela Alger led the front row with 10 kills and two blocks, respectively. Brittany Petlansky finished with seven digs.

Ripon Christian caps the first half of the SL season Thursday at Mariposa.
