The final rankings for 2018 have been delivered and for the second week in a row the Charles Hays Rainmakers lay claim to the top spot in the provincial AA rankings, a hard earned honour that will carry the team through to the New Year.
The rankings were released on Thursday, with Howard Tsumura's Varsity Letters project providing the glad tidings for Coaches Mel and Ryan Bishop and their Senior squad.

The Rainmakers hold on the top spot in the province came after a pair of strong results for the Charles Hays Team last weekend in competition with their rivals at Caledonia in Terrace.
The Senior Boys will next see action on January 4 and 5 when one of the high profile teams of the Lower Mainland make the trip north, with Kitsilano set for a two game series at the Charles Hays Gymnasium.

While the Senior Boys take a break from their AA duties, basketball will still be on the schedule this weekend with the Rainmaker Alumni Tournament underway today and tomorrow at the Prince Rupert Boulevard campus.
The annual event brings back many of the players from Rainmaker teams past, who put their experience to the test with the current rosters of Junior and Senior teams.
You can drop into the gym through the weekend to see if the Old Dogs or the younger of pups prevail in the popular event to launch the Christmas break at CHSS.
The Junior Boys Rainmaker team has a few weeks off before they return to competitive action, with Kevin Sawka's team next set to take to the court against Prince George Secondary, as the Central Interior school squad comes to Prince Rupert for games on January 11 and 12.
You can follow the Rainmakers through the CHSS Rainmakers twitter feed.
