SKA salutes its athletes


The Stella K. Abraham High School for Girls hosted its annual Sports Dinner as a way of acknowledging and thanking their energetic and enthusiastic student athletes on all eight of SKA’s sports teams. 

The girls were treated to a delicious dinner followed by guest speaker Rabbi Eli Brazil, director of Camp Kaylie and director of student activities at DRS. He emphasized how important it is to act on the court using good middot. Sportsmanship, he said, is more important than the game.

The coaches from each team gave out awards, including those for MVP, Rookie of the Year, Sportsmanship, and more. 

SKA thanks the amazing coaches — Basketball, Naomi Agbashof; JV Volleyball and Varsity Volleyball B, Pammy Soloman; Varsity Volleyball A, Lauren Packer and Tamar Weinberg; Softball, Esther Goldfeder and assistants Nina Meyer and Sarah Sklar; Tennis, Helene Meyers and assistant Eliana Abbe; Hockey, Tali Weintraub and Jaclyn Wernick; and Soccer, Susie Lewin and Kelly Wright.

The SKA Basketball Team received its banner from the championship game that they won in March against Bruriah High School. Captains Chaiy Bodek and Miriam Kazlow and the team retained the championship for the fourth straight year.

Everyone had a great time reflecting on this past season while looking forward to next year’s. Thanks are extended to SKA Athletic Director Helene Myers; Head of School Helen Spirn; and Rabbi Yosef Zakutinsky, director of student programming for their support. 

The SKA Sports Dinner is a wonderful way of showing the student athletes how important each of them is to the team and to the school. SKA looks forward to another year filled with fun and championships.
