A PLURALISTIC, COLLEGE PREPARATORY JEWISH DAY SCHOOL FOR GRADES 6-12.

STUDENT ATHLETES OF THE WEEK: Caleb Claywell (10th) JV Boys Basketball, Elijah Ames (6th)Middle School Boys Basketball C

Week of 2/5

Caleb Claywell has played great game for the boys JV basketball team this year. His energy and effort made a huge impact on both ends of the floor. He attacked the basket strong and with confidence either scoring or collapsing the defense to create for teammates. On defense Caleb was aggressive causing steals that led to points and he rebounded well. Overall his effort was great and he caused a positive, contagious energy that was reciprocated by his teammates. That's why he's athlete of the week.

 

The Boys Middle School 6th grade team played Torah Academy on Sunday and Elijah Ames excelled making him our athlete player of the week. All thru this season, Elijah has shown great enthusiasm and leadership in practice and in our games, especially in this one. Since the team was short handed with players; Elijah was asked to play several positions and he took control of the rebounding which the team really needed. Elijah scored as well thru out the game ending with six points, mainly from grabbing offensive rebounds over taller opponents and taking another shot. The team did end up losing to Torah on the day but I like to thank the team for a great season and congratulate Elijah in becoming our Barrack Athlete of the Week
