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.
As we roll towards Pesach, all Spring sports have now commenced, giving us an action packed 2nd week of April to discuss. Straight ahead, on the JM in the AM Sports Update, we’ll kick around some soccer scores and Hockey, Softball and Baseball are just a swing away. Good Morning, I’m Elliot Weiselberg.
The Diamond Sports are here and all but one team in Boys Varsity Softball have thrown their first pitches. In the East, MAY and DRS have jumped out to 4-0 records, each sweeping doubleheaders with Rambam in the process. The two teams will meet at the end of April in what could be the determining factor in who takes the division. Out West 4 teams are 2-0 and will await the other side of the Pesach break to separate from each other.
In Girls Softball, SKA and Ma’ayanot have jumped out to 2-0 records atop the East and West respectively. Central, HANC and Hillel are each 1-0 and four other teams have at least 1 win on the early season.
In Baseball, TABC and MTA are 2-0. MTA opened the season with a 10-3 win over SAR and a 5-4 win over JEC, while TABC upended Heschel and Ramaz. For Ramaz, a low end to the week that started with a 5-0 win over North Shore behind a phenomenal 19 strikeout effort by Junior Max Tanz.
Back indoors, girls hockey continues, where Frisch appeared poised to bump up behind Heschel’s hot start, defeating SKA 9-2 and Ma’ayanot 2-0, but was shutout last night by Ramaz, 1-0. The loss puts the Cougars and the Rams into a tie at 2-1, 1 point behind Ma’ayanot for 2nd in the West. Both have 2 games in hand on the Rapids, who split the week, adding a 2-1 win over SKA to the Frisch loss. Out East, HAFTR and SAR continue to separate themselves from the pack, each taking a win on the week.
In Boys Varsity soccer, DRS, North Shore and Frisch each added wins on the week to up their records to 3-0. DRS and North Shore each defeated HANC, while Frisch topped JEC. Heschel remained undefeated with a drubbing of Magen David, while TABC preserved a 1-point lead in the West doubling up Kushner 12-6.
Tennis has also gotten off to a smashing start for DRS, who lead the boys East division with a 3-0 record, sweeping Rambam, North Shore and Flatbush in all 15 matches played on the early season. On the Girls courts, Central has also jumped out to a 3-0 record, sweeping Shulamith and Magen David after narrowly edging out North Shore 3-2.
