Four teams representing Charles Hays Secondary School are in place this week to take part in High School Basketball Provincial tournaments.
The Charles Hays Senior Boys and Girls Rainmakers are in Kamloops taking part in the British Columbia AA Basketball tournament, while the Charles Hays Junior Boys and Girls are in the Vancouver area for the Junior Boys and Girls Basketball Championships.
Three of the four teams claimed their spots in the tournaments with Zones victories in February, with the Senior Boys winning in Smithers, the Junior boys in Terrace and the Girls at home at Charles Hays.
The Junior Girls will also be competing in a tournament this week, despite finishing second in their tournament, they were the only Northwest squad to register for possible tournament action and so they are making the trip to Langley.
Prince Rupert's dominance in roundball bounced through February, as the Prince Rupert Middle School Storm claimed the Grade 8 boys Zones championship in a tournament in Smithers, the Girls Storm squad finished second in their tournament.
This weeks tournaments across the province are going ahead despite the current labour dispute between the BCTF and the provincial government, that after the BCTF granted permission for high school coaches to continue on with their work during the dispute, owing to the amount of preparation that the tournaments required to be put in place.
Charles Hays Senior boys tip off on Wednesday at 5 at Thompson Rivers University, the Charles Hays Senior Girls play that same day at a different venue in Kamloops.
The Junior boys first game is Thursday at 11:30 AM, the girls first see action at 12:30.
