Jericho Trio Selected for Top Soccer Training Program
Three Jericho sixth graders, Amanda Epstein, Taylor Katz, and Scott Freudenthal, were recently selected to participate in the New York State Olympic Developmental Program (ODP) sponsored by the Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association. Amanda, Taylor, and Scott were among the 73 soccer players chosen in the 1993 age group from an initial pool of approximately 320 top players from the lower New York region, including Nassau and Suffolk counties, and the five boroughs of New York City. It is rare for three players from the same town in the same age group to be selected for ODP, and the small size of the Jericho community makes this feat even more noteworthy.
