Caribou’s ‘Mr. Tennis’ perseveres through changing times

... “He loves tennis and he’s really dedicated to the sport.”

Habeeb, 52, has served as tennis director for the parks and recreation department since the summer after his freshman year of college in 1983. He is in his 30th year as the boys varsity tennis coach at the high school and his 27th season as the girls tennis coach at his alma mater.

Habeeb has guided both teams to more than 300 victories. The girls are 335-49 under his watch while the boys program scored win No. 300 against Houlton last week and is 305-97 since he became head coach in 1988.

“You’re planting seeds,” he said of his summer work. “You know you’re not going to see the fruits until the future but that’s what you’re doing. I’ve always loved the sport and it’s given a lot to me so I’m always trying to give back to it.” ... ing-times/
