Girls Basketball win in 1st game of the season

The NEJA girls basketball team played their first game of the season on Tuesday at Beth Chana Academy High School in Orange. Ever mindful that the show must go on – and after a last minute referee cancellation – our very own Head of School Naty Katz stepped in to ref the game.

After falling behind – for the first time during the game – with just 48 seconds left, the girls showed grit and determination to tie the game up in regulation. They then took the lead and secured the 18-16 victory in overtime.

The girls are next in action Thursday, February 10th at 4 p.m. vs the American School for the Deaf in the NEJA gym, followed by the boys playing ASD at 5:30 p.m. Students and NEJA players’ immediate families are allowed to attend the game.
