Five local high school volleyball teams will be competing at B.C. championship tournaments next weekend (Nov 30 to Dec. 1).

The Fraser Heights Firehawks will go to the boys Senior AAA tournament in Kelowna as the Fraser Valley champions, going through the zone playoff without losing a set.

William Dichuk of Fraser Heights was the tournament MVP (Most Valuable Player), while teammates Josiah Ahn and Irvan Brar were all-stars.

Fraser Heights placed third in league play with a 7-3 (won-lost) record, their Fraser Valley South league proving to be the best of the four in the zone. The Earl Marriott Mariners were first in South league play followed by the Elgin Park Orcas. The two South Surrey schools were second and third respectively at the Fraser Valley playoff.

The Seaquam Seahawks go into the girls Senior AAA tournament in Parksville as the top-ranked team in the province, four places ahead of the Clayton Heights Nightriders.

The tournament MVP was Kira Tome of Seaquam, with teammates Nicola Etter and Stephanie Martin named all-stars, as were Tonya Gulbrandsen and Rachel Proctor of Clayton Heights.

Two Surrey schools are ranked in the top three for the girls Senior AA tournament in Vancouver. The Surrey Christian Falcons are seeded second, one place ahead of the Pacific Academy Breakers. The two rivals were tied for first place in the Fraser Valley league, each with 13-1 records. Surrey Christian edged the Breakers in the Fraser Valley tournament final.

Rachel Windhorst of the Falcons was the tournament MVP. Kim DeJager and Maria Cupido of Surrey Christian, and Tresyre Stevenson and Ashley Roxbourgh were tournament all-stars.
