On their way to the semis, Bungoma dismissed a stubborn Kericho 3-2 (23-25, 23-25, 25-19, 25-19 and 15-12) as Uasin Gishu trounced former champions Nairobi by straight sets of 25-13, 25-15 and 25-16.
Other quarterfinals matches saw Meru beat Kiambu 3-1 (25-23, 25-23, 21-25 and 25-20) and Nyeri defeated Nyandarua 3-1 (25-23, 18-25, 25-23 and 25-21).
In the men's volleyball, Kilifi bowed out of the tournament after suffering a 3-0 defeat to Kisumu (25-19, 25-17 and 25-20).
A disappointed Kilifi setter Evans Changawa said: "We had a short time to train for the games owing to Covid-19 restrictions, which greatly affected our preparations."
In football, Kiambu stormed into the semifinals after beating Kilifi 2-0 at Embu Stadium yesterday.
