Heschel Ultimate Frisbee Team Dominates New York

The Heschel Heat went undefeated in the regular season, finishing 7-0 and ranking #1 in New York City and New York State. 

As the dominant team in the Empire State, the Heat never let up 8 or more points in a game that is played to 15. 

This year’s team features a staggering 29 players. Every player had a role. James Kashan and Ezra T-G, the only two freshmen on the team, had a large presence. Captains Max Harnoy and Evan Altman guided the team forward and were key players in this historic season. Harnoy said, “We are proud of our undefeated regular season and look forward to hopefully bringing home the city championship trophy, along with the state tournament trophy Memorial Day weekend.” 

This is exactly what the Heschel Heat did. They went on to beat Brooklyn Tech in the city and state finals! They won both games by more than 7 and completed the perfect season, bringing home the city championship, and the first-ever state championship!

The team is especially grateful to Coaches Aaron Bell and Heschel Alum Lev Gordan. Altman said, “We are very lucky to have two phenomenal coaches who bring energy and positive vibes to every practice and game. We couldn’t have done it without them.”
