LANGLEY — It’s an Okanagan log-jam just outside the top three of this week’s B.C. senior boys AAA volleyball rankings.
In fact, after Okanagan Mission’s win this past week over zone rival Penticton, it’s safe to say the Huskies have made Kelowna the true hub of big-school boys volleyball in the province.
The Kelowna Owls move up three spots to No. 4, OKM makes the biggest overall climb of six spots into No. 5 while Mt. Boucherie checks in at No. 7. The Lakers make it four for the region in the top seven with a spot at No. 6.
