High school volleyball season reaches its apex this week, and local teams will be trying to play above the net.

Dover Bay Secondary School and Woodlands Secondary School qualified both their senior girls’ and senior boys’ squads to the B.C. School Sports provincial championship tournaments.

The Dover Bay Dolphins senior AAA girls came second at the Island championships earlier this month and are expected to be competitive at provincials, which begin Thursday (Nov. 27) in Parksville.

Dover starts with a match against Lambrick Park at 10:10 a.m. at Oceanside Elementary School, faces Prince of Wales at 12:30 p.m. at Ballenas Secondary School, then wraps up pool play with a 2:30 match against South Delta at Oceanside.

The Woodlands Eagles senior girls are also staying on the Island for provincials, as their tournament gets served up Thursday at Brentwood College in Victoria. The Eagles begin with a match against St. Thomas More.

Boys’ provincials get underway today at the Langley Events Centre. The Dover AAA boys start off with a match against Mount Baker and the Woodlands AA boys begin against Mennonite Educational Institute.
