The Charles Hays Senior Boys Rainmakers already have a fair bit of basketball under the belt in these early days of a new season of hoops in the Northwest, but tonight marks their home debut as they welcome the Caledonia Kermodes to the Charles Hays Gymnasium.
The Rainmakers are coming off a strong outing in the Lower Mainland, last weekend finishing second in the highly regarded No Regrets tournament on the North shore of Greater Vancouver.
Mel and Ryan Bishop's team put on some highlight reel performances through much of their four days in Vancouver, gaining some notice from basketball fans through the tournament.
The Rainmaker performance was also taken note of by those putting together the weekly rankings with Howard Tsumura's Varsity Letters blog noting that Charles Hays is the Number one ranked team in BC this week following their Vancouver journey,
