Rainmakers hope to soar at Pitt Meadows Air Show Tournament
Mel Bishop's squad is set for some top tier competition in the twelve team event, with the host Pitt Meadow Marauders welcoming a number of the highest rated teams in BC High School Basketball.
Among the teams taking part in the tournament are North Delta, Sir Charles Tupper, Mt. Boucherie, Collingwood, Sir Winston Churchill, Gleneagle, Windermere, South Kamloops and Cowichan.
The Rainmakers opened up the tournament on Thursday, finding themselves on the losing end of a 79 to 58 decision to the Port Moody squad from Heritage Woods Secondary.
The Rainmakers return to the court today, when Charles Hays takes on Vancouver's Collingwood at 3:30.
