Baseball faced Pinewood this week, Tennis won doubles matches against Lick, and Swimming had its 1st meet of the season.
Baseball battled in two challenging games this week. The Wolves faced undefeated More High School in San Jose. Oliver Bass relieved Adam Cohen on the mound. Bass threw 20 pitches and got the last four outs without giving up a run. The Wolves took on Pinewood in a home game where the faced the best pitcher in the league. Jesse Lieberman pitched a great game and was the only Wolf to get a hit against Pinewood. The Wolves play three games next week before the Pesach break. 
Tennis rematched against Lick-Wilmerding's JV team this week at home. Again, the match ended in a tie. The Wolves won all of their doubles matches but lost in singles. New doubles partners Sydney Ticktin and Misha Lubich earned their first win this season. The Wolves will face Mid-Peninsula High School in a home match next week. 
Swimming participated in their first meet of the season versus San Domenico and Lick-Wilmerding. Under the sun in San Anselmo, the Wolves looked good in the water. Ma'ayan Epstein, Maxim Kusnetsov and Mira Kittner had solid races for the Wolves. JCHS swims against University next week prior to the break. 
Wolf of the Week: Jesse Lieberman earned the honors this week for his excellent leadership on and off the baseball field. Jesse organized pre-season practices for his teammates in order to prepare for the season. He played an excellent game versus Woodside Priory going 1 for 2 with 2 RBIs and pitched four innings on the mound facing 17 batters and striking out 4. Congratulations, Jesse!
