La PORTE — For Rachel Kaminski, she’s essentially a microcosm of her team.

The junior No. 2 singles player is undefeated with a superb 24-0 record. La Porte’s girls tennis team is also unblemished at an exceptional 21-0.

So it’s no coincidence that her determination and play rubs off on her teammates and pushes them to do better.

“I think it does,” Slicers’ coach Don Varda said. “She’s very coachable. She listens extremely well. She sets a really high standard for our work ethic. We’ve had a match or two where I thought we were kind of slow getting out of the gate, we weren’t really going at it full steam, but not Rachel. She’s come out every match and gone full steam. Rachel has never lagged. I have to give her a lot of credit for that.”
