On behalf of the tournament committee, please allow me to be one of the first to welcome you to Penticton and to the 2018 AAAA Girls BC High School Provincial Volleyball Championships. Congratulations to all the teams who have worked hard throughout the season to reach this goal. Penticton Secondary School considers ourselves privileged to be given the opportunity to host the event after a five year absence.
Considerable changes have been made this year, none more important than expanding the event to 20 teams. The committee is thrilled to have 4 more teams compete at the province's highest level. The AAAA tier has been extremely competitive this year so we are expecting to see some exciting volleyball over the course of the tournament.
I would like to take this time to thank our many volunteers. It takes a massive effort to put an event like this together, and I know their countless hours behind the scenes will make this tournament one to remember. Also please make an effort to thank and support our various sponsors who really do make this tournament possible.
Good luck to everyone and enjoy your time in Penticton. We hope that your experience here in Penticton and at the AAAA Provincials will leave you with memories that will last a lifetime.
