Provincial Tournament comes to an end for Charles Hays Junior Girl's Rainmakers

The five day festival that is the BC Junior High School Basketball Tournament is winding down, with the two Charles Hays Rainmaker teams having played their final games of the week long tourney.

Both Boy's and Girl's squads qualified for the big show through their regional zones success, however the competition of the premiere basketball tournament for the province clearly offered up some challenges for both teams.

The Girls wrapped up their week with this morning's game with Northern BC rival Nechako Valley, some early game problems gave Nechako Valley a lead and their girls never looked back, claiming the game with a final  57 to 28 victory.

The loss, left the Charles Hays girls without a win over their four games, however after shaking off some first game nerves, the Rainmaker squad put in some solid efforts over their four days.

With Friday's game against Prince George's College Heights, perhaps providing a glimpse of what the team brought to Langley for the provincials.

The Junior Girls will have much to remember from their week in Langley as they make the trek back north

Of the many high school tournaments and events that take place in British Columbia, the Junior Basketball tournament in Langley is about as good as it gets.

Offering up much in the way of atmosphere, competition and in organization.

A tournament which provides much attention from the host community and the opportunity for streaming video of all games for the folks back home.

The experiences from their time at Provincials, providing something for the team to build on for the next season.

Up next for Charles Hays Girls basketball will be a trip to Langley for the Senior Girls, who will take part in the AA Provincial Tournament at many of the same venues as the Junior Girls did.

That tournament runs from March 4th until 8th.

For those interested in more background on the tournament and a full review of all the results, the tournament website offers a fair amount of material to look over from the week soon to end.
