The Okanagan Valley boys AAA volleyball championship this weekend could well come down to the two top-ranked teams in the province.

The No. 1 ranked KSS Owls and second-ranked Mt. Boucherie Bears are expected to meet in Saturday’s final in Kamloops, although the Pen Hi Lakers have other motives.

The Lakers are currently ranked sixth in B.C.

KSS will take on Norkam in the semis, while the Bears face Pen Hi.

The top two teams will represent the Okanagan at the B.C. AAA boys championship Dec. 2 to 5 at the Langley Events Centre.

AAAA girls

The KSS Owls will be the favourites this weekend at Mt. Boucherie for the Okanagan AAAA girls championship.

The Owls are ranked fifth in the province, while the Pen Hi Lakers are No. 8.

KSS will play RSS in one semifinal, while the Bears take on the Lakers in the other.

The winners will meet in the valley final at 3:30 p.m., both of whom will qualify for provincials.

The B.C. championship will be contested Dec. 2 to 5 at Dover Bay Secondary.

A girls

The Immaculata Mustangs hope to take the next step towards defending their B.C. A girls volleyball championship this weekend at the Okanagan Valley championship in Princeton.

The Mustangs, who recently won the Central zone title, are currently ranked No. 1 in the province.

Earlier in the season, the Mustangs finished third at the B.C. Catholics where Natalie Livingston was named a tournament all-star.

The Mustangs will be aiming for their 24th trip to the provincials, held this year Dec. 3 to 5 at Mt. Sentinel in the Kootenays.

“We have a very solid team this year lead by Grade 12’s Natalie Livingston, Nicole Hart, Amanda Grant, Katie Spiess, and Ashley Prehofer,” said Mustangs coach Brian Drosdovech.

“A strong Grade 11 contingent made up of Ashlyn Day, Kate Johnson, Lexi Bruschinsky, Hannah Slade, and Kennedy Pesl. And now Grade 10 call up Trinity Alexander rounds out a very diverse and talented team.”

The Kelowna Christian Knights won a challenge tournament this week and have also earned a berth to provincials in Princeton.
