Senior Boys Rainmakers ranked at Number 3 in BC following weekend play; Juniors remain in top 10

That marks a jump of three spots from this time last week and is signal of the growing awareness of the tempo of basketball found in the Northwest.
The Rainmakers high ranking comes following their 3 and 1 record at the high profile North Vancouver tournament, a four day journey south that saw the Makers' take on some top competition from the Lower mainland and beyond.
At that tournament, the Rainmakers Liam McChesney was named to the 2nd Boys All-Tournament Team.
