The Emery/Weiner School’s seventh-grade Blue basketball team
The Emery/Weiner School’s seventh-grade Blue basketball team (pictured) gathered to celebrate their title as Greater Houston Athletic Conference (GHAC) champs. The Jaguars were undefeated for the season and finished with a 40-14 victory over St. Mark’s. The seventh graders were strong all season, but played their best basketball during the final four games, including a close win over rival Trafton Academy and big wins over Ft. Bend Christian and Awty International School. Throughout the season, center Ryan Dorfman was the leading scorer and rebounder. The champion Jaguars are (top row, from left) Leo Mendel, Sam Whitman, Ari Strauss, Ryan Dorfman, Rafa Camhi and coach Jason Reimers; (second row, from left) Alex Wigder, Garrett Kaplan and Cole Manley; (third row, from left) Sammy Berman, Ryan Josef, Josh Costa, Elan Goetz, Mattox Friedman and Noah Johnson; (bottom row, from left) Beau Robinowitz and Reuben Kessler.
