(Photo/Blike Shapiro) The Jewish Community Center was crowded on August 25th when the annual Tennis and Swim Team Banquet was held. Of all the summer ac tivities at the JCC two of the most exciting are the Swimming and Tennis Team events. More than 90 swimmers participated, ranging in age from 5 to 18; 35 tennis players proved that the JCC has a highly competitive team in the Queen City League. Swim Team Awards Coached by Ellen Skurla and Jim Oddo, the JCC swimmers started the season off slowly, but finished strong by winning their last two meets against McClintock Woods and Waverly. The swimming events are divided into age group com petition ranging from 8 and un der to 15-18. Choosing in dividual swimmers for awards was particularly difficult, said Coach EUlen Skurla, because so many swimmers gave their best efforts during the meets. The Robert Musler Award, the highest given to a member of the swim team, went to Erica Warshawsky, who led the 15- 18 girls in points, showed enthusiasm and contributed strongly to the team’s overall ef fort. The “Most Valuable Swimmer” award is given to that boy and girl who received the most total poipts over the course of the season. The com petition between Amy Bernhardt and Lisa Josephson was particularly close this season and both came in first place in their last six events. Lisa Josephson finally won by only 2 points. Jeffrey Shapiro won the boys’ “Most Valuable Swimmer” award. In the age group categories Kelly Thyer and Phillip Rosenfeld won for 8 and under; Melissa Davis and Alan Karben won for 9-10; Amy Bernhardt and Brian Bruck won for 11-12; Lisa Perlin and David Malin won for 13-14; Erica Warshawsky and Mike New man won for 15-18. The age group Team Spirit awards went to Abby Weisman and Ebrian Bernhardt for 8 and under; Debra Perlin and David Rosenfeld for 9-10; Tracy Josephson and David Barman for 11-12; Alyssa Multer and Jeffrey Shapiro for 13-14; Marla Shapiro and Ira Shapiro for 15-18. Lisa Josephson won the “Overall Team Spirit” award. The competition for “Most Im proved Girl” was so close this year that the coaches decided to award it to two swimmers, Emi ly Dembeck and Susanne l^grad. The award for “Most Improved Boy” went to Scott Crago, who swam competitive ly for the first time this year. The Community Swim League attempts to combine healthy competition with fun, and most of the youngsters seemed to enjoy the meets. Most encouraging was the number of new swimmers this season and the progress made by many of the younger swimmers. Tennis Team Awards The Tennis Team was coach ed by Randy Krltaer, who also found it difficult to single out a few members of the team for awards. JCC did very well in the Queen C^ty League this year. TTie girls “A” team came in first place in the 2nd Division and the boys “A” team came in se cond place in the 1st Division. The Andy Musler Award, given for overall excellence, team spirit, leadership, and enthusiasm, went to Kim Kort. The “Most Valuable” awards went to Carol Karp and Joel Strause for 12 and under; Kim Kort and David Strause for 15 and under; Susan Levin and Randy Newman for 18 and un der. Lisa Josephson and Julie Appelbaum received the “Most Improved” award for girls and Michael Greenspon won the “Most Improved Boy” award. The “Most Spirited” award went to Laurie Goldman, Debra Perlin, Scott Fligel and Keith Greenspon. It was the unanimous feeling of the coaches that all the members of both teams deserv ed credit for making the summer competitive sports program a successful and enjoyable one. -1 In The News Books in Review p. 11 Bulletin Board p. 10 Candlelighting p> 3 Classified Ads p. 9 Community Calendar p. 11 Dry Bones p. 12 Editorials p. 2 For The Record p. 3 JCX3 Activities p. 8 Random Thoughts p. 3 This *n That p. 9 World Beat p. 4 Highlights of Adult Classes Page 5 JCC Adult Class Schedule - Pages 6 & 7
