The CMEK Girls 5th Grade team won the Bergen Travel League Championship in convincing fashion by defeating Westwood 34-21 in the final game of the season. The team, led by “The Fab Five”—Dani Rothschild (Noam), Nikki Ratner (Yavneh), Gabby Green (Moriah), Yakira Keiser (Noam) and Carly Sheinfeld (Noam)—also received a strong assist from Vanessa Amsinger (Edgewater), Becca Eisenberger (Moriah), Sydney Teigman (Moriah), and Elisheva Friedman (Noam).
In a grueling 10-day stretch that featured six games, CMEK defeated Secaucus, Ramsey, Tenafly, and Old Tappan before its dominating performance in the championship game over Westwood.
