The winner of Yeshiva University’s 2011 Sarachek Tournament is SAR High School

Five days of basketball and friendly competition among Yeshiva high school teams from across the United States and Canada are over. The winner of Yeshiva University’s 2011 Sarachek Tournament is SAR High School, which defeated YULA 43-36 before a packed gym on Monday afternoon. The SAR-YULA game capped a long weekend that included a Shabbaton for the players and saw a steady stream of visitors to the Max Stern Athletic Center on YU’s Wilf Campus in Washington Heights.

The SAR team and some of the enthusiastic and well-mannered fans who cheered them on, celebrated together after the team's victory in Yeshiva University's 2011 Sarachek Tournament.
