A local student has a lot to look forward to, as he excels in tennis on a national level.
Mark Vasat, 14, is competing this week in the National Clay Court Championship, in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. He qualified for it by winning all of his singles and doubles matches in his age category at a Junior USTA tennis tournament in Yakima.
Vasat’s top placement at the Pacific NW USTA event also qualified him for the Zonal Team Championship July 24 through July 28, in Colorado Springs.
“I enjoy competing at a national level,” he said Friday, from Florida. “I am physically and mentally challenged at each match, and I meet new friends from around the U.S.”
