The Baseball team earned two wins, against Mid Pen and Kehillah; Tennis took on Mid Pen in close matches; and JCHS swimmers improved times in a meet against University.
Baseball had a busy week on the field. The Wolves faced Mid Peninsula on Monday to start the week with a 7-3 win. Jaco Bibliowicz and Adam Cohen were on the mound for the Wolves. Each of them pitched a few strong innings to help JCHS earn the win. Sam Lieberman had three hits and a great catch in left field to seal the deal. The Wolves, going on little rest, faced Kehillah the next day. JCHS was in control with Jesse Lieberman on the mound. Even though the Rams had a late rally, the Wolves held on to win 10-8. Check out photos of the JCHS Baseball team from Mr. Dean.
Tennis took on Mid Peninsula on the court this week. The Wolves played a lot of close matches with doubles partners, Chloe Ticktin and Jordan Kimel earning a win for the Wolves. Singles players Matthew Rosenberg, Misha Lubich and Michelle Barash all played close matches, but unfortunately came up short. Check out photos of the Tennis team by Mr. Dean.

Wolves of the Week: Freshman swimmers Anthony Mak and Ilana Borison both have had perfect attendance the whole season, bringing a positive energy and attitude to each practice and a growth mindset. Ilana was the only point-scorer in a very competitive 50m freestyle event and swam a strong 100m breastroke, also scoring a point. Anthony swam a very strong 50m freestyle as well and has improved by over 10 seconds from when he was first timed in practice in this sprint event. Both are leaders in the pool and have a bright future on our team.
