Andrew Kabacy’s high school tennis season reads like a physics lesson.
In the past year, the Skyview sophomore has grown six inches.
In that time, his serve became a weapon that now approaches 100 miles per hour.
It’s a lesson in leverage.
And after winning the district title and becoming the only Clark County boy to reach the 4A state tournament, Kabacy has plenty of leverage on local tennis courts.
Although an ankle injury brought a premature end to his state tournament last month, Kabacy is The Columbian’s All-Region boys tennis player of the year.
Though he has played tennis since age 4, Kabacy was easy to underestimate as a short, skinny freshman.
Yet, while playing in the No. 2 singles spot, he went undefeated in league play and reached the district final.
As a sophomore, Kabacy lost just once in the regular season last fall. He then won the district title in a three-set, two-and-a-half hour match against Camas freshman Spencer Kang.
