Rainmaker recognition in BC High School Rankings for January 29th
On Wednesday, the Vancouver Province produced their weekly Top Ten rankings of the various levels of High School Basketball including the AAA level which the Rainmakers compete in.
From their work this month, the Rainmakers were given another honourable mention, just below the breakthrough mark of the listings which feature some of the well known schools of Vancouver basketball.
As we outlined on the blog earlier this month, the Rainmakers received a similar review two weeks ago as they arrived for a Pitt Meadows Tournament.
That tournament marked their second journey to the Lower Mainland in this current basketball season. Games which have provided Mel Bishop's team with the opportunity to test themselves against some of the top calibre teams in the Province.
In December the team participated in the North Shore Invitational Tournament in North and West Vancouver.
With just a few more weeks to go towards the lead up to the March Provincials, the Rainmakers will be looking to continue on with their winning ways and make the adjustments that could find them success at the Provincials in Langley.
The review of the latest provincial rankings from the Province can be found here.
