Mason Dileta looks to inbound the ball against the defending Tyler Jones during an inter-squad scrimmage among the Charles Hays Senior Rainmakers boys basketball team on Dec. 14. The Rainmakers were supposed to play a pair of season opening games at Charles Hays during the weekend, but bus and highway difficulties encountered by their opponents Caledonia and Nisga’a led to both games being cancelled. The team didn’t allow this to slow their intensity levels at all though, giving their teammates no quarter as they played a mock game in place of the real thing. Head coach Mel Bishop liked what he saw out of the boys, saying that the competitive nature of the scrimmage is a good sign heading into the eventual start of the Rainmakers season.
