YU High School Varsity Hockey Bids for League Record Tenth Championship this Sunday 

With a win this Sunday, the Yeshiva University High School for Boys / Marsha Stern Talmudical Academy (MTA) Lions will make Metropolitan Yeshiva High School Hockey League history—becoming the first team to win ten championships.


The MTA Lions go for their league record tenth championship Sunday, March 10.

After a dramatic comeback in their semi-final matchup against Davis-Renov-Stahler Yeshiva High School, which saw the Lions score two goals in the final two minutes of a 3-2 victory, the Lions are set to face off against the Torah Academy of Bergen County Storm in the Varsity Championship Game. MTA won both regular season meetings this year against TABC: 2-0 in Teaneck on November 17 and 3–2 in Washington Heights on Feb. 11.

Led by senior Captain Menachem Mermelstein, MTA enjoyed an 11-2-0-1 season, finishing second in their division. The Lions last championship came in 2011.

The Championship Game will take place on Sunday, March 10 at 3:45 p.m. at Lawrence Middle School, 195 Broadway, Lawrence, NY. To purchase tickets to the game, email Head Coach Dovie Quint at
