Grant's Andrew Finkelman heads to college tennis on a high note

COURTESY: JOHN DAVENPORT - Training with good players at the University of Portland, and focus on the areas of his game that most need improvement, have helped to strengthen the tennis game of Grant High's Andrew Finkelman.He's played in two state championship tennis matches and competed in plenty of Pacific Northwest tournaments.

But those are like easy kill shots compared to what Andrew Finkelman faced last Friday in the Grant High choir room.

It was just Finkelman, an accoustic guitar and a song ... and assorted classmates on lunch break in the audience for an open mike event organized by the 2015 Class 6A singles champion and 2016 state runner-up.

Other Grant students performed as well — on guitars and piano — and someone did slam poetry.

Finkelman sang "Willy's Song," by Rayland Baxter.
