Senior Neeraj Pandita is making a huge impact for Columbus East Men’s tennis this year. He brings great senior leadership to the team both on and off the court. The number two singles player was the lone winner for the Olympians last week against crosstown rival Columbus North. Pandita defeated North senior Anay Gangal.

Q: How does it feel to be chosen as athlete of the week?
A: I feel honored to be named athlete of the week, but i couldn’t do it without my team cheering me on from the sidelines.

Q: Was there more pressure last week due to it being against North?
A: Yes there was some pressure because it’s always a tough match, but I was able to focus and win.

Q:Did you prepare for this matchup differently than any other, or was your preparation the same?
A: No, same process, we just practiced harder all week, like usual.

Q: How do you plan to carry this success throughout the rest of the season?
A: Just keep the momentum going and hopefully with some additional practice we could win sectionals.
