She's back and so is San Marcos High School girls volleyball. Emily Allen, who played some earlier in the week, was a force on the court as she led the Royals to a sweep over Santa Barbara.
Allen tore the anterior cruciate ligament in her right knee about eight months ago playing soccer. She pounded down a match-high 11 kills as the Royals handed the Dons their first Channel League loss in four games this year. San Marcos is now 2-2.
Emily's younger sister Chloe Allen added 10 kills as the Royals won 25-21, 25-20, 25-17.
