The student pilot reported that he landed slightly left of centerline but aligned with the runway. The airplane began to swerve to the left and he applied an increasing amount of right rudder. He reported he determined the airplane had sufficient airspeed to lift-off, so he applied full throttle and released the right rudder application. The airplane departed the side of the runway, but he thought the airplane had enough airspeed to become safely airborne. The airplane became airborne, but it was unable to climb, and it settled to the ground and came to a stop very quickly. The pilot reported that the engine was not sputtering or missing. The ground where the airplane came to rest was about 40 feet lower than the runway.
Probable Cause: The student pilot's failure to maintain directional control during landing.
