Wolves Baseball scored a win 6-0 against Woodside Priory and JCHS Tennis won 3 matches against Lick-Wilmerding. Coach T has the updates.
Baseball: The Wolves were back on the field this week with their first league game versus Woodside Priory. After a few weeks of practice and no games, the Wolves looked strong and cohesive. With Junior Jesse Lieberman, on the mound, the Wolves held the Panthers to no runs scored. JCHS earned their first win of the season beating Woodside Priory 6-0. The Wolves take the mound next week with league games versus Thomas More and Pinewood.

Tennis: JCHS played a well-matched Lick-Wilmerding Junior Varsity squad in their match this past week. The teams split the match with a final score of 3-3. The Ticktin/Kimel clan earned the wins for the Wolves. Jordan Kimel and Chloe Ticktin won in doubles and Syndey Ticktin won her singles match. The Wolves face Lick again next week and look to take the win.

The Wolves are diligently working the pool. The team is gearing up for the first match on March 29 versus San Dominico and Lick-Wilmerding in Marin.

Wolf of the Week:
JCHS Tennis team member Michelle Barash played an epic first match of her senior season versus a strong Kehillah competitor. The match lasted one-and-a-half hours -- all the other matches began and ended while Michelle's continued to go on. Her opponent would be on the brink of winning and Michelle would battle back and force it to deuce. Her tenacity and growth as a player was evident on the court. Impressive. Congratulations, Michelle!
