Students looking on felt a strong sense of school spirit as team members took pictures beneath the championship banner. Team captain Leron Rayn said, “It feels good to know that our team will be remembered for years to come.”
The 2011-2012 YULA Panthers made history this past year by sweeping the Sarachek, Cooper, Milken and Hillcrest basketball tournaments. Junior Jojo Himmelman said that winning the Sarachek tournament at Yeshiva University was extra special because it allowed the team to be honored on the national stage.
Athletic Director Carey Many foresees another great year of sports for YULA Panthers, saying, “We look forward to continuing the great tradition that the basketball team has established. Our sports teams are models of excellence for high school sports teams here in Los Angeles as well as across the country.”
