The Charles Hays Senior Boys Rainmakers hopes to win the British Columbia AAA High School Basketball Championship came to end over the weekend — but not by much.
The Rainmakers went 0-4 in the tournament, but the record was far from indicative of the play.
Despite playing top-level competition, the Rainmakers were just a bucket here or there from taking a real run at the title.
The Rainmakers dropped their opener late Wednesday 65-63 to Abbotsford before hitting the court early Thursday only to fall 55-45 to Nanaimo. Again, they were back on the court early Friday but fell flat losing 81-74. Even at 0-3, the Rainmakers came back taking Richmond’s McNair Secondary to the final buzzer losing 77-76.
Prince Rupert’s Justin McChesney was one of only five players at the tournament to receive a Telus Scholarship.
