Senior boys volleyball teams from across B.C. launched into the ‘A’ provincial championship at the Thornhill Junior gym today.

With 12 teams in total, the championship will play out this weekend, culminating in a gold medal match on Saturday night at 6 p.m.

Three teams from the Northwest zone made provincials this year, including Centennial Christian School from Terrace, and Ebenezer Christian and Bulkley Valley Christian from Smithers.

Several teams travelled by bus and a few flew in, travelling from Fernie, Duncan, Richmond, Kelowna, Kimberley and Langley.

Played in the gym at the old Thornhill Junior School and at Skeena Secondary School, the games are being live streamed and a schedule can be found on the provincial website.
