Charles Hays Rainmakers win Northwest Zone championship

There will be another banner in the Charles Hays gymnasium as the Rainmakers junior boys volleyball team are Northwest Zone champions.

There will be another banner hanging in the Charles Hays gymnasium as the Rainmakers junior boys volleyball team are this year’s Northwest Zone champions.

The boys faced off with Smithers Secondary in the final of last weekend’s tournament, and were able to beat the Gryphons in straight games. After a close 27-25 first game, the Rainmakers left little doubt about the outcome of the game by taking the second game 25-18.

Charles Hays’ Justin McChesney was named the Most Valuable Player of the zones, while Jonathan Nelson was named a tournament all-star.

With the win, the boys will continue to practice and prepare for the provincial competition in Abbotsford. The tournament begins today and will wrap up on Nov. 24.

Look for results from the provincials in next week’s issue of the Northern View.
