Two Fort Saskatchewan students competed over the weekend at Badminton Provincials in Red Deer.
 
Fort residents, Wesley Calef of Bev Facey and Mitchell Wagner of Fort High, fought hard for two days against the best competition in Alberta.
 
On Friday, four separate pools of senior men's singles played in the round-robin to determine which division each player would compete in on Saturday. 
 
The top two contenders in the four pools went up to division one and the bottom finishers went down to division two. A loss on Saturday meant elimination.
 
"The caliber of kids was outstanding and it didn't matter if you were in division one or division two after Friday, it looked like it was an intense group of kids," said Carrie Calef, Wesley's mother.
 
Mitchell finished top two on Friday and lost his first Saturday division one game.
 
Calef finished third on Friday in his pool, dropping to division two, he ultimately took silver, losing a match by two points.
