Moriah 6b Basketball: Keeping the Streak Alive

Moriah had another strong victory against Yeshivat Noam, winning 45-37.

After a slow start, Moriah got rolling with help from Ethan Schechter’s three buckets made from mid-range. Isaac Horowitz led the game with 15 points, followed by Schechter with 8. David Cohen led Moriah with the best field goal percentage, shooting 100% from the floor. Moriah crashed the

The Ma’ayanot Rapids Advance to the Championships

Thursday night, the Rapids travelled to play the Ramaz Rams in New York City. Ramaz had the same record as Ma’ayanot coming into the game: eight wins, two losses, and a playoff game win.

The Rapids got off to a bit of a rocky start, scoring only 3 points in the first quarter, with Ramaz scoring 8. By halftime, however, the teams were tied at 15 points. For

Moriah 7th Grade Defeats RYNJ in Championship

As sixth graders, the Moriah boys suffered a heart-breaking loss to SAR in the finals last year. Through the summer and the beginning of this year, they approached the season with the intent of returning to the big game, but this time walking away as champions.

The season began with a bump, falling to RYNJ on a buzzer-beater. Moriah proceeded to run

YMSSA Inaugural Season

Sunday, March 9th, was a terrific night for local yeshiva athletics. In a four-hour window, the newly constructed Torah Academy of Bergen County gym was the site of something amazing. The three junior high school games showcased terrific athleticism, standing room only crowds, and a feeling of interschool camaraderie that one would not expect at a championship

RYNJ 7th Grade Jaguars Going to Finals!

It took a week for the snow to clear away, but the YMSSA 7th Grade Basketball 2013/2014 regular season finally came to an end on February 18th with the RYNJ Jaguars’ 77-59 victory over the defending champs, the SAR Sting. It was a tight game throughout, but the Jags were able to pull away in the final quarter led by Eitan Warburg’s

Team HASC — A Runners Perspective

While sitting on the plane on the way back from the A1A half marathon weekend in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, I reflect on the thrilling adventure I’ve just experienced. I had just spent three days with Team HASC, days that were nothing short of miraculous. It’s been some time since I’ve had such nachas and joy, since I was so fully choked up with emotion.

Yasher Koach of the Week: Saul and Tova Lejtman

Several months ago, Teaneck’s own Saul Lejtman decided he was going to run a race. Saul is not one of the many regulars that you would find running up and down the mountainous terrain known as West Engelwood Avenue in the wee hours of the morning, let alone the hills of Jerusalem. In fact, when Saul signed up for the Jerusalem Half-Marathon it was his first step into

Frisch JV Topples Heschel to Advance to the Yeshiva League Semi-Finals

When Heschel sees Frisch Captain Andrew Langer #23 coming, they should bar the door—with double locks. After torching the Heat for 41 in the Rubenstein Tournament in December, Langer picked up right where he left off and dropped 28 (playing only three quarters) on Heschel to lead the Cougar blitz over the number 2 seed from the Manhattan

Yavneh Tops Noam in a Playoff Thriller

The Sunday afternoon playoff matchup between these two 7th grade basketball teams was a bit of a paradox. On one hand, Noam, led by Yechiel Kaiser, Benny Matheson, Avi Bodoff, Joe Baron, Jacob Lehrer, and Sammy Nat came in with a 7-3 record, and had already beaten Yavneh, which barely squeaked into the playoffs with a 3-7 record. On the other hand, on opening
