Two Fort students are duking it out today to earn a trip to Badminton Provincials.
The high school Badminton season has turned from the Metro Edmonton Championships to the Provincial Playdowns.
Fort Saskatchewan residents Wesley Calef of Bev Facey and Mitchell Wagner of Fort High battled it out in Senior Boys Singles at ME Lazerte on Wednesday (April 19). They finished in the top two for the North Edmonton Division.
Calef sealed first in the third match against Wagner.
The two grade 12 students advanced to the cross over finals today (April 20) at Mother Margaret Mary to meet Edmonton South.
"Edmonton zone area is split into a north and south division of 14 schools each and they begin to play each other off to send the best of Edmonton off to Provincials," explained Carrie Calef, Wesley's mother.
The top two finalists advance to the Alberta High School Badminton Provincials on May 5 and 6 in Red Deer.
