Every Tuesday morning at 7:20 ET Nachum Segal presents Elliot Weiselberg on JM in the AM to deliver the Yeshiva League Sports (YLS) Update. Tune in for the latest Yeshiva League Sports information, as well as, the occasional update on other sports happenings in the Jewish world. The transcription for this morning’s update is below.
Today on the Tuesday Morning JM in the AM Sports Update, as we enter the month of May, MAY continues their torrid run in Softball, TABC puts their undefeated record to the test in Boys Varsity Soccer and it’s a two team race at the top of the West in Girls Hockey. All that and more straight ahead, good morning, I’m Elliot Weiselberg.
In Girls Hockey, Central has risen to the top of the East with a record of 3-3 following their 1-0 shutout win over North Shore. Central now has a two point lead over the Lions and HAFTR who dropped identical 2-0 results to Ramaz and SKA to drop both teams to 2-4. Out West, Frisch, SAR, Kushner and Heschel have all clinched playoff berths. The division has become a two team race, though, as Frisch and SAR are both undefeated following Frisch’s wins over Kushner and Ramaz and SAR’s 5-1 win over SKA. The two will meet up next Monday night in a showdown to decide the West crown.
In Boys Volleyball, the defending champs have made their presence known. The SAR Sting swept two contests on the week, including a straight set victory over previously-undefeated Flatbush. Now sitting at 6-0, the Sting will gear up for the only remaining other undefeated team, Ramaz. The Rams took 3 on the week, knocking off North Shore, DRS and YDE to match SAR at 6-0.
In Boys Varsity Soccer, SAR wrapped up the Central with a 13-6 win over Ramaz. SAR and TABC remain the only undefeated teams, as TABC took care of JEC and Kushner this week, but will face a tall task against Frisch tonight. In their last meeting, coming out of the Pesach break, the Storm were able to take a 2-1 win over the Cougars out in Paramus. The playoff race will definitely be an interesting one, though in the middle of the pack. Currently 6 teams not leading their respective divisions are tied with 8 points at some variation of 4-2 or 4-3. How this week shakes out will have a massive impact on who goes on to the postseason and who goes home.
Moving over to the diamond, MAY is putting on a clinic in Boys Softball, taking an undefeated 6-0 record into the month of May. The Eagles have scored double digits in 5 straight contests, including a sweep over DRS, 14-3 and 12-2. Magen David has hit the half-way point at the top of the Central at 3-0-1. The Warriors took identical 12-2 wins over Flatbush and Shaare Torah this past week to lead the division. Out West Hillel and Heichel Hatorah remain locked in a heated battle, as Heichel stayed undefeated with a 10-run win over MTA. The two will meet up next Wednesday.
And that was your Tuesday Morning JM in the AM Sports Update, I’m Elliot Weiselberg!
