After an action-packed weekend, the SAR wrestling team collected the second place finish with an impressive 205 points. Three SAR wrestlers finished first in their matches: Akiva Najman-Licht (120 lbs.), Danny Dinkevich (132 lbs.) and Judah Schanzer (285 lbs.). The SAR story of the weekend was Daniel Berger (second place, 195 lbs.) collecting the coveted Aryeh Zinkin Yeshiva Wrestling Award. The Aryeh “Captain Lou” Zinkin Yeshiva Wrestling Award grants $1,800 to one Wittenberg participant each year that has travelled a similar road as Aryeh—defying the odds to pursue their Torah identity while demonstrating a commitment to the advancement of the Jewish community. Congratulations to Daniel, Akiva, Judah, Danny and all of the high school wrestlers who left it all on the mat this weekend.
