Despite having to compete against students from grades 9 to 12 Fateen finished second in the Regional finals and qualified to compete at the City Championships.One week later in another fine performance Fateen placed second losing to last year's Provincial Silver medalist and qualified for the OFSAA Provincial Championship.This was an outstanding accomplishment for a first year high school student. A muscle strain sustained while training for the Provincial championship forced Fateen to have to withdraw after his first match.Fateen's success has created interest in tennis at the school and he is hoping to have several teammates join him at the championships next year.
