Teaneck Doghouse Sportstar of the Week: Arielle Fleischman

The Jewish Link of New Jersey and Teaneck Doghouse would like to recognize seven-year-old Arielle Fleischman as this week’s Sportstar of the Week. Fleischman is a second grader at the Rosenbaum Yeshiva of North Jersey and played a key role in her MGBL team Triumph Hotels’ victory the other week. PressONE.net – Voice & Internet was up most of the game, but in a league where every basket is important, Fleischman nailed two huge shots, giving Triumph Hotels an exciting win. When asked about his daughter’s game, Dr. Jacky Fleischman told the JLNJ, “Arielle always plays hard and shows very good sportsmanship.”
