Emanuel students excel
Emanuel School’s 10-year-old boys’ futsal team entered the Football NSW-hosted Schools Regional Futsal gala day tournament in Alexandria earlier this month, and finished undefeated.
They beat International Grammar School in the grand final 5-0.
Their squad comprised of Levi Brody, Jake Chesler, Taal Ismin, Ravi Keller, Joshua Marishel, Luca Schwartz and Toby Stein.
They have qualified for the state tournament, to be held in term 3.
Meanwhile, Emanuel School students Alexander Kirievsky, Sacha Rosen, and Ben Shapiro, recently represented the CDSSA open boys’ basketball team at the AICES Championships.
Their team played well, claiming the trophy after winning the grand final against the Hunter Region Independent Schools team. Kirievsky gained selection in the AICES open boys’ basketball squad.
Fuchs finds form in the Hunter
Jewish golfer Jeremy Fuchs not only made the cut in the TPS Hunter Valley golf championship event held at Oaks Cypress Lakes Resort last week, but finished the final round one-under par (209), to place 29th overall.
Fuchs – a former NSW Jewish Open Golf champion and Maccabi Cup winner – described his performance in the tournament as a “solid week” of golf up against a highly competitive field.
He added, “I’m very grateful to the team at Cypress Lakes for getting the event to go ahead, despite all the rain, and thanks [also] to PGA Tour Australia for a great event.”
Maccabi dazzles during Mardi Gras
Maccabi NSW Tenpin club members had a great time dressing up in as many colours as possible while taking part in a fun-filled Mardi Gras themed night of bowling at Manhattan Bowl on March 7, hosted by the Sydney Rams.
Prize winners for Maccabi included Justin Kennedy and Natai Hanouka (scratch team series), Howard Silver (men’s handicap series) and Naomi Baram (women’s).
Then in round 7 of Maccabi’s Monday night league on March 14, team Two Can Tango (Michael Horrowitz and Tomer Aston) remained in first place on 46 points, just 3 points ahead of the Oldies (Patricia Levy and Ray Meinrath), who enjoyed an 8-0 win over 9th-placed Mean Machine.
