Fall Sports Update
It was all smiles for Boys Soccer as they continued their dominance over Kehillah on Sunday in Palo Alto, relentlessly peppering the Rams defense en route to a 9-1 victory. With the win, the Wolves retained the Kiddush Cup, and improved their overall record to 5-1. Yoni Aharon scored twice and Benji Sarnovskiy scored his first career goal on his sixteenth birthday!
Cross Country took to the course for the first time this year in GG Park and smashed a bunch of personal records in the process on the 2.93 mile course. Dafne Moskowitz led the women’s times, coming in at a personal best 22:19, and Natan Geller, in his first race, led the men’s times at 19:11.

Wolf of the Week: Liora Homa
One of the coolest things to watch, as coaches and teachers, is the growth and maturity of a student from 9th grade to 10th grade. Liora is the prime example of a student who has completely transformed, and as co-captain and setter of the JV Volleyball team, she has found her calling as a natural team leader. From directing the warm-ups, to helping teammates with rotations, to encouraging her teammates when they need a positive voice, Liora is blossoming into a dynamic team leader. Her 14 aces led the team’s effort in a resounding 2-1 victory over Kehillah last week. Congrats Liora!
