JCC Hoopsters Meet Pat Summitt

Coach Michael Wimmer of Woodmere, Paige Kriftcher of Port Washington, Taylor Kruter of Bellmore, Morgan Roessler of Massapequa and Allison Keller of Merrick, all surround Pat Summit, head women’s basketball coach at the University of Tennessee, while attending the Annual Salute to Women in Sports event on Tuesday, Oct. 13, in New York City. The girls were all part of Sid Jacobson JCC’s gold medal-winning basketball team, competing during the August 2009 JCC Maccabi Games in Westchester County and attended this event as an acknowledgment for their volunteerism. Each year, Sid Jacobson JCC sends a delegation of 40+ athletes between the ages 13 and 16 participating in boy’s and girl’s basketball, soccer, swimming and tennis. The JCC Maccabi Games are a weeklong tournament with other Jewish athletes from the U.S. and around the world. This year the Sid Jacobson JCC will be traveling to Omaha, Nebraska from August 1- 6.
