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.
