Two former Teaneck residents and members of the Jewish Center of Teaneck are among 15 one-time Teaneck High School athletes who will be inducted into the Teaneck Athletic Hall of Fame on May 11.
Elyssa Deutsch Goldenfarb, class of 1992, and Steven Siegel, class of 1967, won important awards and set unbeaten records while playing for Teaneck High School. Elyssa of North Brunswick, whose parents, Barbara and Dr. Paul Deutsch, still live in Teaneck, is being honored for tennis, fencing, and golf; Steven of Texas, will be honored for tennis and soccer. These accomplishments qualified them for recognition as outstanding athletes of their decade.
The ceremony will be at the Teaneck Marriott at Glenpointe, beginning with cocktails at 6 p.m., followed by a dinner with vegetarian options.
Tickets are available at TAHOF.com.
The Teaneck Athletic Hall of Fame was the vision of James Vuono, a former football and tennis coach at Teaneck High School. A newly constructed entrance to the high school’s memorial gym serves as the Hall of Fame’s exhibit hall, which houses the records, accomplishments, and memorabilia of Teaneck’s finest athletes.
