MEI hosting girls volleyball provincials

Abbotsford school hosting AA tournament in December

The MEI Eagles senior girls volleyball team will have home court advantage at the AA provincials in December.

The BC AA senior girls volleyball provincials are officially coming to MEI in Abbotsford.

The event, which runs from Dec. 1 to 3, was originally set to take place in Vanderhoof but scheduling issues caused the planned facility to be unavailable.

The MEI Eagles senior girls team is one of the favourites heading into the tournament, and they are currently ranked second in the province. The club has only lost once this season, falling to the top-ranked Langley Christian School Lightning. The team also won a tournament in Kelowna earlier this month.

“This will be a great event and showcase the best high school girls volleyball in B.C. this year,” said MEI’s Jeff Gamache.

The Eagles are the defending BC AA senior girls champions, after defeating Pacific Academy in last year’s final.
