Teaneck Doghouse Sportstar of the Year: Elie Kahan

JEC Varsity Basketball Stuns Heschel & Aims for Playoffs

On Monday night, December 17, the Heschel Heat came to JEC in a game the Heat must have perceived as a “gimme.” After all, Heschel had beaten JEC in November at home, on its homecoming night, by 24 points.
