Santa Barbara sweeps San Marcos, DP on sand

Santa Barbara High’s girls sand volleyball teams swept rivals San Marcos and Dos Pueblos at an AAU-sanctioned tournament at Ventura Harbor on Saturday.

The two 3-0 wins improve Santa Barbara’s record to 4-0.

The Dons’ No. 1 team of senior captains Cassandra Amador and Tatum Vedder posted a 2-0 record on the day. Sophomores Zoe Maritorena and Ally Drevo, playing as the No. 2 team, had two hard-fought victories, including a three-set win over Dos Pueblos. The freshman duo of Erika Foreman and Linnea Skinner “played focused volleyball and improved as the day went on,” said coach John Gannon.

Santa Barbara travels to Pismo Beach next Saturday to take on Santa Ynez and Arroyo Grande.
