Duncan Christian School students Micah Lewis and Simon Deng accomplished a first for their school in the sport of badminton last month.
Lewis and Deng became the first DCS players to compete in a high-level provincial badminton tournament through Badminton BC when they took part in the BC Junior B Provincial Championships in Nanaimo.
The two young athletes competed in a higher age group, the U17 category, each winning one singles match against players who are ranked among the best in B.C. As a doubles team, Lewis and Deng placed sixth in the province.
Deng also teamed up with Skyler Ji of the Vancouver Island Excellence Club and collected a runner-up medal in the mixed doubles B division.
