Langley Christian, Langley Fundamental, and Walnut Grove are part of the Big Kahuna championships.

Top-ranked MEI in AA and Kelowna in AAA have drawn the first seeds in next week’s Big Kahuna BC Volleyball Championships at the Langley Events Centre.

The 36-team  boy event runs Wednesday, Dec. 2 to Saturday, Dec. 5.

The MEI’s Eagles, last year’s AA champions, head Pool A and lead a strong contingent from the Fraser Valley League, which got four of the top six seeds.

Langley Christian (Fraser Valley) is seeded second in Pool A, followed by Clarence Fulton (Okanagan), last year’s AA runner-up, and Pacific Academy (FV). College Heights from the North Central zone heads Pool B.

Next are Langley Fundamental (FV), George Elliot (Okanagan) and Vancouver Island’s Pacific Christian.

The rest of the 16-team AA field, in order: Pool C – WL Seaton, DP Todd, McRoberts and Lambrick Park; Pool D – Woodlands, Prince Charles, Charles Hays and wild card Sa-Hali.

Kelowna, which finished second a year ago in AAA, beat Mount Boucherie in the Okanagan zone final.

The Owls lead Pool E and are followed by Island champ Dover Bay, Boucherie, and the Lower Mainland’s top team, Moscrop.

Pool F has Fraser Valley tourney champ Walnut Grove, Van Tech of the Lower Mainland, Island runner-up Oak Bay, and Fraser Heights (Fraser Valley).

The remaining AAA pools and teams in order:

Pool G: David Thompson, two-time defending AAA champ Earl Marriott, Surrey Christian, and wild card Penticton.

Pool H: Reynolds, Delta, McMath, and Mount Baker.

Pool K: Riverside, Belmont, North Peace, and Prince George.

The tournaments have round-robin play the first day that will lead to re-seeding for championship bracket play. AA and AAA matches will run concurrently at the LEC, which is hosting the championships for a second year after a 20-year run in Kelowna.
