Last Monday, Yeshiva University High School for Boys (MTA) participated in its fourth Torah Bowl meet of the year. It was the tensest meet yet: the playoffs. The participants were tested on Pinchas, Matos, and Mas’ei. When MTA arrived, there was a delicious pizza lunch.
Due to MTA’s outstanding play throughout the season, they received a bye in the first round and were to play the best team of Ramaz, SAR, and Heichal HaTorah. The opening game was between SAR and Ramaz, with Ramaz emerging victorious. Ramaz then played a fierce match against Heichal. Heichal took the win, sending them to play against the MTA Lions in a series of three games.
In game one, the Lions destroyed with a score of 18-4. The next game was very close, but the Lions just lost, making the score of the series 1-1. In game three, the MTA Lions were victorious, sending them to the championships! A big mazal tov to Rabbi Pearl and the team on their win!
