2011 Junior Maccabi Games

2011 Junior Maccabi Games

 

JCC MetroWest took a delegation of 59 athletes ages 10-12 to the 2011 Junior Maccabi Games, hosted by the Katz JCC in Cherry Hill, NJ on Sunday, May 22. MetroWest athletes competed in Baseball, Basketball, Soccer, Swimming, and Tennis against other JCC teams from New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Delaware

Baseball

 

Jr. Maccabi Baseball

Coaches: Eric Katz, Jim McCauley, Mark Lim
Players: Joseph Blum, Zachary Freeman, Spencer Frey, Daniel Greiss, Jonathan Holland, Josh Katz, Harrison Kern, Benjamin Lim, Max McCauley, Elais Neibart, Daniel Stern

The MetroWest Jr. Maccabi baseball team arrived in the 2011 games with a single focus, repeat. Having lost key members from the gold-medal winning 2010 squad, they knew that the road ahead was going to be more difficult but that would only serve as motivation. From the coaches to the returning players to the new additions, gold was always the goal. The boys' families served as fans and witnesses.

 

Game 1 vs. Delaware: W5-0

Strong pitching and a 5-run 2nd inning proved to be the winning combination for Metrowest. Behind 3 strong innings from Elias Neibart (1 hit, 0R, 5Ks) and one inning from Daniel Greiss (K), Delaware posed little resistance in a 5-0 win. Offense was contributed by Harry Kern (1B, BB, 1 RBI, Run), Josh Katz (1B, 2B, BB, RBI, Run), Max McCauley (1B, 2B, Run), Daniel Greiss (BB, Run), and Benny Lim (HBP, Run). End of game excitement was provided via a 6-3-2 double play to end the game.


Game 2 vs. Katz JCC: L10-0

The Katz JCC proved to be a formidable team as they cruised to a 10-0 whitewash over MetroWest. Behind their ace, Jared Delargo, allowed only one baserunner, Daniel Stern (BB) and held MetroWest hitless in 3 innings. The MetroWest squad proved that they could learn quick lessons in the eventual rematch in the finals against the same pitcher.

 

Game 3 (Semi-finals) vs. Kaisserman JCC Team A: W4-3

It was déjà-vu all over again as the Kaisserman team faced MetroWest in the Semi-finals for the second year in a row. This year, the game went into extra frames but MetroWest showed resilience in showcasing strong pitching and timely hitting on its way to a 4-3 win. Josh Katz (3 inn, 6 hits, 0ER, 2 Ks) and Benny Lim (2 inn, 0 hits, 0ER, 3Ks) combined to hold down a strong Kaisserman offense. The offense produced 8 hits and was sparked by a tremendous home-run from the bat of Daniel Stern (HR, BB, 3RBI) in the first inning. Contributions were supplied by Benny Lim (2 hits), Daniel Greiss (Run), Josh Katz (2 hits, Run), Elias Neibart (Single, Run), Max McCauley (Single), and Harry Kern (single, Run).


Game 4 (Finals) vs. Katz JCC: T1-1

Eight innings and over 2 1/2 hours of baseball could not settle a winner in the rematch of game 2 between MetroWest and Katz JCC of Cherry Hill. Standout pitching came from Elias Neibart (3inn, 0R, 2H, 2BB, 5Ks), Benny Lim (3inn, 0ER, 1H, 0BB, 5Ks), Josh Katz (1 inn, 0ER, 2Ks) and Daniel Stern (1 inn, 0ER). Offense came from Benny Lim (2H, Run), Daniel Greiss (Single), Josh Katz (2H, BB, RBI), Elias Neibart (2H), and Max McCauley (2H).

Also contributing to the team's success throughout the tournament were Joseph Blum, Zachary Freeman, Spencer Frey, and Jonathan Holland.

Sharing the gold with the host team was the result of the tie. It was a fitting end to another great tournament.

 

Boys' Basketball

 

Coaches: Marc Rosenberg, Dan Ravitz
Players: Andrew Karp, Charlie Levinson, Bryan Levy, Brandon Perry, Zach Ravitz, Will Rosenberg, Will Schaffer, Perry Schwartz, Maguire Sweeney


Girls' Basketball

 

 Jr. Maccabi girls Basketball

 

Coaches: Emily Einhorn, Josh Breitman
Players: Emily Rachel Blum, Adi Brickman, AJ Dansky, Lindsay Friedman, Jamie Handwerker, Rebecca Landau, Ally Langendorf, Haylee Mevorah, Maya Robbins, Julia Schmulewitz.

The girls' basketball team took for the most part a new team to the 2011 Junior Maccabi games. The team began preparing for the games with weekly practices beginning in March, leading up to the games in May. The team had many practices which were able to prepare them for the games. The team was comprised of 10 players from both Essex and Morris County. The girls would compete against other teams from Pennsylvania, Maryland and New Jersey.

The first game was against a team from the Harrisburg JCC. The girls came out strong from the opening tip and never looked back. They executed well on offense and played strong defense. The team had a balanced scoring attack with at least 8 girls scoring a basket. In the second half you could see that the girls were really coming together. On many possessions the girls would make the extra pass, resulting in wide open layups. MetroWest beat Harrisburg by a score of 26-10.

The next game would be against the Kaiserman JCC. This was a physical game from the start. MetroWest played tough and strong defense in the first half and was leading by 1 at halftime. Unfortunately in the second half, one of our point guards took an offensive foul and landed on her wrist. Due to her injury, she was out for the remainder of the tournament. The second half was just as physical but the girls played tough until the final buzzer. We lost the game but the girls did not hang their hands.

Our first playoff game was against Bux Mont, last year's gold medal winner. Last year MetroWest played Bux Mont for gold, but came up a little short. This year was a different story. The girls dominated from the opening tip. They played strong defense and executed extremely well on offense. They had a 15 point lead at halftime and never looked back. They would beat Bux Mont and move on to the semifinals, where they would face Cherry Hill.

The semi final game between MetroWest and Cherry Hill was a strong one. The girls were extremely patient on offense by taking their time to set up. They were able to move the ball around and wear down the defense which resulted in many wide open shots. Every time either team made a basket the other team would match it. No team was ever up by more than 5 points. In the last few minute Cherry Hill went on a run and MetroWest wasn't able to catch up. We lost the game but would play for the bronze medal later on in the day.

MetroWest would face JCC on the Palisades for the bronze medal. MetroWest started the game out strong, jumping out to an early lead. Palisades went on a late run and MetroWest was unable to catch up. This was the teams 5th game of the day and the girls were a little exhausted but played hard until the end. They would take 4th place in the tournament.

Although they didn't medal the girls played their hearts out every single minute that they were on the floor. As the day progressed they really came together on the court, which was apparent, especially in their afternoon games.

The girls all had a great experience at the 2011 Junior Maccabi games and look forward to participating in future Maccabi programs together.

With 6 players being able to return to next years squad, MetroWest looks forward to returning to the games, stronger and more experienced with the goal of winning a gold medal.

We can't wait until next year!!!

Tennis

 

Players: Emily Krupnick, Aaron Tucker

The Junior Maccabi Games were a fun and successful day for the MetroWest tennis players. Emily Krupnick dominated the girls' tournament, winning all three of her matches en route to the gold medal. Aaron Tucker won his first match and lost the second.

 

Boys' Soccer

 

Jr. Maccabi Boys Soccer

Coaches: Ira Steinberg, Larry Wieseneck
Players: Zach Gollin, Ben Grinberg, Matt Konop, Jeffrey Nelson, Aidan Pope, Harry Rosen, Cooper Steinberg, Max Weintraub, Brahm Wieseneck

The MetroWest boys' soccer team played three games in the tournament, scoring 6 goals while conceding only 3. The team began on a high note with a win over Greater Washington. The team played Mid-Westchester close in their second preliminary game, ultimately losing by one goal. The team drew the defending champion Bucks County side in the first medal round game. Bucks County had defeated the MetroWest team in 2010 in the gold medal game. The rematch was hard fought by both teams. Regulation and overtime could not determine a winner and the game went to penalty kicks with Bucks County converting more in the end. The team did not hang their heads though. They gave it their all. More important than the results on the field was how the boys acted throughout the day, being great teammates to each other and showing respect for their opponents, referees, and fans. They earned high praises from their coaches.


Girls' Soccer

 

Jr. Maccabi Girls soccer

Coach: Bryan Fiedler
Players: Jessie April, Morgan Darrow, Orli Forster, Samantha Goldman, Zoe Grebin, Peri Lamkin, Lia Mund, Sarah Miller, Ilana Lurie, Lexi Porigow, Ashley Reuter

The MetroWest 12 and under girls' team had a great result in the Cherry Hill games by winning the Silver medal. The most exciting game was the semifinals against a tough Greater Washington team in which Peri Lamkin scored the tying goal in the last minute of regulation time. After a short overtime period, the game went to penalty kicks and the MetroWest girls won with the final kick 11-10. MetroWest lost to a tough Bucks county team in the finals and went home with the silver. It was a team effort by all of the girls and they had a great time on and off the field. Lia Mund anchored the defense, with the support of Jesse April, Ilana Lurie, and Morgan Darrow. We had a strong offensive performance by Peri Lamkin, Ashley Reuter, Lexi Porigow, Sarah Miller, and Orli Forster. Samantha Goldman played both defense and offense and put constant pressure on the other teams. The girls could not have been so successful without Zoe Grebin in the goal.
