SAR High School Girls Varsity Basketball Defeats Ma’ayanot Rapids

The reigning yeshiva league basketball champions took the court in the HIVE for the opening game of the 2017-2018 season on Thursday, October 26, against the Ma’ayanot Rapids. The stands were filled with eager parents, teachers and peers cheering on their friends. The first game nerves were no match for the team. Taking an early lead, the Sting started off the game strong and maintained it throughout. Despite this being the first time this team played together, their teamwork and communication was impeccable.

The 1-3-1 defense that the Sting played for the majority of the game was effective in shutting down the Rapids, limiting their final score to 29. While SAR’s offense started off strong, the momentum did slow down a bit as the game progressed, but by the end of the fourth quarter SAR picked it back up, bringing their total score to 45.

Adira Orbach (‘19) with 17 points, and Samantha Horowitz (‘20) with 11 points, led the team on the offensive front.

Let’s go Sting!
