Andover’s Paul Jittawait – Athlete Spotlight Presented By KTA

By Matt Browning

Just a sophomore last season, Andover’s Paul Jittawait was a regional champion, defeating Barrett Steven of Bishop Carroll.

It was quite an accomplishment for Jittawait, who now has his sight set on a bigger season in 2023.

“Individually, I would consider my season a success by making it back to state and placing in the top ten,” Jittawait said. “A team success would be more unity and also having my teammates make it to state as well.”

Being able to sustain himself throughout a match was key to Jittawait’s development before the season.

“One are I would like to improve is my endurance in tournaments,” Jittawait said. “To work on my endurance, I have been playing multiple tournaments and training for multiple hours each day.”

The Trojans will feature an almost entirely new team this season and that is something Jittawait is looking forward to.

“I most look forward to working with a new team and the new players for the upcoming season,” Jittawait said.

Even though he is only a junior, Jittawait has aspirations past his career at Andover.

“I am not sure my future plans,” Jittawait said. “I hope to play tennis at the collegiate level, but I am undecided beyond that.”
