It's not every volleyball tournament that a libero earns MVP honors, but that was the case this past weekend at the Santa Barbara tournament, where Matt Douglas of Loyola was chosen MVP after leading the Cubs to the championship over Corona del Mar.
"He was the catalyst behind our defense," Coach Michael Boehle said.
Douglas is headed to USC.
Loyola won the final, 25-22, 25-23, 25-16.
The Cubs are 20-1 on the season, with their only loss to No. 1 Huntington Beach. Also making all-tournament were Davis Boehle and Casey McGarry.
