Coach Guy Runyon with team members Max Runyon, Lindsay Arons, Sabre Zimmer, Jordan Janowski and Emma Leipsner

The new coed basketball team at Temple Emanuel of the Pascack Valley won its second game against an all-boys team, 38-18, and put up a spirited fight in its third contest against a leading all-boys squad from New York City. The players, in the third, fourth, and fifth grades, showed middot tovot (great sportsmanship) during the contests.

Temple Emanuel’s team does not play or practice during religious school hours or on Shabbat and holidays.
