Bruriah’s basketball A Team kicked off its season with a win against Maayanot at home! The game was action packed from the second the players stepped onto the court. The team was energized, excited, and united as they passed, dribbled, and ran the floor. After Nikki Bick (jr.) scored a layup off the opening tip, it was clear that the team was prepared for a successful evening. Among the highlights, Michal Hyman (jr.) sprinted the length of the court for an open layup; Ally Orgel, Dani Berlin, and Julia Landau (sophs.) all scored; and Tovah Weiskopf made her freshman debut. Penina Abramov (sr.) let nothing getting in her way as she led the team on defense. Bruriah received solid defense from Jennifer Gardner (sr.) and Tali Becker (fr.), as well.
Led by Susan Rifkin, an enthusiastic, devoted, and optimistic coach, Bruriah’s basketball A Team is happy to have won its season opener. Comments from the spectators include “They play well together and are in sync.” The team’s hard work and positive spirit are palpable on and off the court! Join the fun and watch Bruriah in action on November 21 at Ramaz and November 24 v. Central at home. Go Lighting!
