Nachum welcomed Elliot Weiselberg to this morning’s JM in the AM to deliver the Yeshiva League Sports (YLS) Update. Tune in for the latest Yeshiva League Spring Sports information, as well as, the occasional update on other sports happenings in the Jewish world. The transcript for this morning’s update is below.
Now that the Madness of March has drawn to a close, we turn our attention to the Spring sports as we work our way down to the last few weeks of the 2021-2022 school year. Straight ahead, on the Tuesday Morning JM in the AM Sports Update, Boys Volleyball, Girls Hockey and Soccer take center court. Good Morning, I’m Elliot Weiselberg.
The last champion of the Girls Hockey league has jumped out to the head of the pack in the early going. The Heschel Heat have opened up a 5-0 record, outscoring opponents 18-0 in the process. Heschel’s final three games of the season will come in May, against perennial West division powerhouses, Kushner, Maayanot and Frisch. Out East, HAFTR has the top spot at 3-1, taking 3 in a row, including a 3-2 overtime win over Maayanot after dropping their season-opener to Heschel, 1-0. SAR and SKA are right behind them, but in this early season, it’s anyone’s ball game.
In Boys Volleyball, SAR has taken the early lead, winning 3 games without dropping a set. Two-time defending champ Ramaz is right behind them at 2-0, also yet to drop a set. Flatbush and Frisch have won their season openers, while North Shore has not yet begun their season. Everyone else is looking for their first win after slow starts.
Boys and Girls varsity soccer have just gotten started. Boys soccer has seen 11 of the 16 teams pull in a win, with no team playing more than three games. Kushner and DRS are both 2-0 with DRS scoring 24 goals in their 2 contests to make them an early favorite in the East. Meanwhile in Girls soccer, Kushner has opened up a massive advantage in the West at 4-0, outscoring their opponents 50-7. SAR leads the Central at 3-0, with the East just really getting their feet under them as HAFTR leads a group of 3 teams with one win.
In JV Boys Soccer, Frisch, SAR and TABC have each amassed 2 wins, while Girls JV sees Maayanot at the top in the early going with a 3-0 record.
