The Kelowna Owls’ monopoly on Okanagan high school boys volleyball continued Saturday in Kamloops.

The Owls earned their sixth consecutive valley title, defeating their closest rivals, the Mt. Boucherie Bears, in the championship match.

KSS, ranked No. 1 in B.C., took down the second-ranked Bears in four sets 25-20, 25-20, 18-25 and 25-21 in the final.

The Owls were led by tournament all-stars Spencer Doody and Ryan Samuelson, while Matt Cespedes led the KSS attack as the top power hitter.

Both the Owls and Bears will represent the Okanagan at the provincial AAA boys championship, Dec. 2 to 5 at the Langley Events Centre.

KSS is looking to end three years of frustration at next month’s B.C. finals.

The Owls reached the final at provincials in 2012, 2013 and 2014 only to settle for the silver medal each time.

The Bears won the bronze medal at provincials last year.
