San Marcos survived some tough pool-play matches and rolled through the playoffs to win the San Luis Obispo girls volleyball tournament on Saturday. The Royals beat Clovis North in a one-game final, 25-18. Chloe Allen was named the tournament MVP and Emily Allen and Anika Wilson were picked to the all-tournament team.

“We had to work hard all day to get to the finals,” said San Marcos coach Erica Menzel Downing. “We had a few tough matches in the morning, but we continued to get better as the day went on.”
