The JV squad was full of talent this year, and we cannot wait to watch these players grow next year!
The Weber sideline squad included 11 fantastic cheerleaders. Our five returning girls showed the new members what Weber Spirit is all about and we welcomed five freshmen who joined the squad with great enthusiasm and energy! Our two seniors, Elisa Rosenthal and Skylar Simon will be greatly missed. It was a blast cheering the flag football team on during such a successful season!
The 2021 Football Season was a challenging but rewarding season. We began preparing in July for a very long and demanding season. The season was a success due to our senior leadership, their ability to lead the other players to overcome mistakes, leave the negativity behind, and trust each other on and off the field. Our underclassmen grew both mentally and physically on and off the field. Needless to say, next season the success will continue because of our football players' dedication to the program. The coaching staff is very proud of both individual and team efforts this season!
We had two new athletes join us this year, Heshy Nemer and Micah Kopelman, who worked incredibly hard not only during practice but during the races as well. I commend the team environment that our Co-Captains, Max Chernow and Noah Meltzer, have created over the season.
At our first of two meets at Mills Spring Academy, we had two runners place in Top 10: Noah Meltzer (7th place) and Ethan Wolkin (10th place). Micah Kopelman was also in the running at 12th place.
The team continued their hard work at the Cass-Cartersville Invitational, where three runners placed in the Top 10. Max Chernow made an amazing comeback after recovering from an injury, placing in 7th. Noah Meltzer placed 10th, and for the first time, Jaclyn Marx placed 10th in her girls competition.
The team had an amazing performance at our Regional Meet on 10/26. Five of the six athletes beat their own Personal Record for a 5k run --including our Co-Captain Max Chernow coming in at a 19:12 5k. and two of our runners placed Top 6 to receive medals in their JV race: Jaclyn Marx, 11th grade (5th for girls) and Micah Kopelman, 9th grade (6th for boys). Ethan Wolkin was neck and neck with Micah and placed a close 7th place behind him.
Much of this could not have been done without the constant determination and hard work of the athletes, both in regards to their individual goals as well as fostering a positive team environment. We also have Coach Raggs to thank for the knowledge, time, and motivation she gives the team. Special thanks to Ari Gabay, who put in his best effort by coming out and supporting the team whenever he could.
