Arroyo Grande High School graduate Megan McGuigan and San Luis Obispo High School graduate Jenny Martin have won gold and the national title with the Division I University of San Francisco’s club volleyball team at the National Collegiate Club Volleyball Federation championship tournament in Kansas City, Missouri.

The two women, who have played with the 805 Elite Volleyball Club together since high school, are now playing club volleyball for USF and were on the Division II team that were national champs last year.

Though the university would typically compete in Division II because of its small size, this year the team was bumped up to Division I because of its performance last year.
