The Ma’ayanot Rapids are now 8-1 as the season begins to wind down and the successful JV basketball team heads into its final regular season game.
On Saturday night, the Rapids played against Westchester High School at Ma’ayanot. After the first half, the Rapids held a tremendous lead, and continued to do so throughout the game. The game opened with two fantastic fast breaks each resulting in a lay-up from Nechama Stern. Amazing jump shots were then seen from Adina Falk and Gabi Lerner, as well as others. The team from Westchester played tight defense, but great passes and fantastic jump shots and lay-ups allowed Ma’ayanot to win this game.
The next and final regular season game that Ma’ayanot will play is against SAR High School. SAR is the only team that has managed to defeat Ma’ayanot this season, but the Rapids intend to practice and play harder than ever before to be successful in this upcoming game. With the championships approaching, the Rapids will stop at nothing to bring home the championship banner.
