Team Nashville had an amazing time in Birmingham, Ala., this past August at the JCC Maccabi Games. We brought 18 teens, two coaches, Afshin Yazdian and Sheri Rosenberg and one delegation head, Andrew Schulman. Team members included Ally Jacobs, Annie Jacobs, Emma Harris, Carly Harris, Eliana Schneider, Ellie Hornick, Jordan Marger, Ilanit Sedek, Hailey Mittelberg, Morgan Jacobs, Benny Yazdian, Carson Kirshner, Hugh Greenfield, Jackson Liff, Gavin Gordon, Michael Gordon, Russ Petty, and Kyle Wolfson.
Our 16U boys’ flag football and 16U girls’ volleyball teams didn’t medal but they were the talk of the games. They exemplified true Southern values and respect. Our hats and pins were also a hit along with our great swag. Our teens can’t wait for next summer’s games in Orange County-Long Beach, Calif., from Aug. 5-10.
