Probably because the grads were most recently in div c
There are plenty that are also assigned to Div B, my guess is that it probably just happens to be that many of the users on the list are assigned to Div C. It seems skewed but in the grand scheme of all the volunteers it isn't really.
It's also a little skewed because some grads are affiliated with the event supervisors already, who arranged to have specific volunteers. Those supervisors just tended to be for C Division events.
Honestly, I think supervising Division C is just more fun. Test questions are harder, answers are more impressive, tech devices are more intricate, etc. Additionally, if you are writing a test, it is much more fun in Division C because the questions and math can be more interesting and difficult which is fun because you as the author get to learn a lot too and put a bunch of college-level stuff on exams because Div C can usually handle some of it. Given the choice, I think the majority of grads would simply prefer Div C over B.

We're organizing another Scioly.org meet-up for Saturday at 7:00 PM in Barton Hall, the location of the closing ceremony, on the left side of the room. You'll look great in your awards ceremony formal attire so we'll take a group photo at ~7:15 PM. Look for the Scioly.org banner!
