Junior Varsity College Bowl Team Competes in Championships
It was a dark and stormy night, Tuesday, April 25, when our intrepid Junior Varsity College Bowl team, champions of the Manhattan Division of the Yeshivah League, comprised of the yeshivot in the tri-state area, went to the semifinal and final games of the College Bowl playoffs. After being treated to a pizza dinner by our hosts at the Jewish Education Project, the team huddled with Coach, Ms. Rachail Kurtz, to discuss final game strategies. The team, led by Danelle Duchan, entered the semifinals confidently fielding questions in science, history, literature, math and other academic areas, and successfully advanced to the finals. Fellow teammates Moses Bakst, Gregory Pinkhasov, Robert Adler, Aaron Fine, Joseph Setton and Selim Sebbagh all participated in the competition.They finished the final games with a trophy as the number two JV team in the entire Yeshivah League. Congratulations to the College Bowl team for another great year and a solid finish!
