Linking Northern and Central NJ, Bronx, Manhattan, Westchester and CT

(TABC sports) This past Sunday, March 17, TABC Storm embarked on their first track meet of the season at Jersey City Armory. The event showcased a stunning indoor arena, hosting participants from nine schools. Noteworthy performances from TABC included Yakir Adams clinching second place in the 200m dash with an impressive time of 27.78 seconds, trailing the winner by a mere 0.6 seconds. Netanel Kalb secured sixth and seventh positions in the 800m and mile races, clocking times of two minutes and 35 seconds, and six minutes and 27 seconds, respectively. Amitai Kessler finished eighth in the 55m sprint, completing the distance in 8.39 seconds. Joey Jawetz tackled the 400m event, landing 11th place with a time of one minute and 15 seconds, while Shamai Bernstein crossed the line in 11th place in the 800m with a time of three minutes and 26 seconds. TABC wrapped up the meet on a high note, delivering a robust performance in the 4x200m relay race, clinching third place out of seven schools with a time of two minutes and five seconds!

Additionally, senior captain Eytan Kirschenbaum (‘24), Matis Krause (‘24) and coach Zach Greenberg (‘16) ran the West Point Fallen Comrades Half Marathon at the United States Military Academy at West Point also that Sunday. The course proved to be exceptionally demanding, featuring steep hills, yet the pleasant weather at a crisp 50 F helped alleviate some of the challenge. Kirschenbaum came in first place in his age group out of 72 runners with a blistering time of one hour and 33 minutes, winning a special military glass cup as a souvenir and a photo on the podium. Krause, running in his first-ever race, managed to complete the course in just two hours and two minutes placing 37th in his age group. Greenberg completed the race in one hour and 42 minutes, placing 30th in his age group out of 135 runners.

Overall, it was a successful showing for the TABC squad and they are looking forward to competing at their next track meet at Roy Wilkins Park, Queens on April 7.
