Junior girls moving on to Provincials

The Rainmakers' participated in regional zones held in Prince Rupert last weekend.

After regional zones were held in Prince Rupert last weekend, Charles Hay Secondary School‘s junior girls basketball team will be moving on to Provincials.

The junior girls ended up coming in second place in zones after the twelve-player team had to play five games, four of which were all held on Saturday. The first game on Saturday was against Skeena, who beat the Rainmakers’ by two points.

“We had to come through the back door. We played Bulkey Valley and beat them by one.” Explained coach Anna Ashley.

The girls then went on to play Skeena for the second time, beating the team by seventeen points.

“Then we had to play against Skeena again, and ended up losing by one. We just sort of ran out of steam.” Said Ashley.

Even though the girls placed second, they will be playing in Provincials this year, which are happening in Langley start March 7 until March 10. At the junior level, BC School Sports does not sanction so teams have to register separately. All of the schools in the region were alerted of this, however the Rainmakers was the only team that did register to go to Provincials.

“I’m really proud of the girls. They played awesome, and hopefully we make a good showing at Provincials.” Commented Ashley.

The Rainmakers’ own Natalie Repole was named the All-Star player of the team during zones.

Coming soon: Junior boys zones results.
