St. Benedict's Update from Richard Kirsch


Update on St. Benedicts Tournament - Who's On First?

Some confusion... We just heard the bus from Kushner was cancelled. Do we even know if the tournament is on? And which coach is accompanying our boys?

Neil Ellman Guest Coaches KYHS Team

Once again, Neil Ellman stepped up and volunteered his time to train the Kushner Yeshiva High School team. He will be running tomorrow night's home tournament and helping appoint a new head coach, who will begin Monday.

Coach Ellman recently celebrated his 40th season as coach of Yeshiva University's team. He is the unparallelled pioneer of yeshiva high school wrestling and there is not a single wrestler in any yeshiva program throughout the United States who does not owe an enormous debt to this great and dedicated man. It was a great privilege for our boys to train under his firm yet warm guidance.
