TABC Clinches College Bowl Championships

The mighty minds of TABC’s College Bowl Brainstorm team prevailed again. At the championship matches, held at the Jewish Education Project office in New York, on Tuesday night, April 25, both the TABC Varsity and Junior Varsity teams took home the trophies for winning their respective divisions. Led by captains Yaakov Zinberg ‘18, Nathanael Vinar ‘19, and Avraham Kahan ‘19 (Captain Shlomi Helfgot ‘18 was in Israel, competing in the Chidon HaTanach, at the time), the Junior Varsity team defeated Heschel High School in their Semifinal match, and continued on to a Finals victory over Flatbush Yeshiva High School, capping off its second straight undefeated season.

The Varsity team (mostly made up of graduating students), led by captains Yehuda Koslowe ‘17 and Hillel Koslowe ‘17 and by co-captain Zachary Ottenstein ‘17, beat Heschel in the Semifinals and then triumphed in their Finals showdown with Frisch to win the championship. Interestingly, the Varsity players themselves are finishing a championship three-peat after winning the Junior Varsity championship in each of the past two years. Special appreciation must be accorded to the seniors for their many years of stalwart, victorious accomplishments.

Inspired and directed by longtime coach Manny Landau, either one or both TABC teams have won the College Bowl championship in at least nine of the last ten years. Manny takes great pride in the accomplishments of the students and feels very fortunate to be associated with such fine young examples of mental might and menschlichkeit.
