Ice Hockey

Girls Basketball

By Heather Shauger Adam treats many aspects of his life with sincerity and a serious demeanor. His approach to the sport of ice hockey has made him the leading scorer on the Bergen Catholic Ice Hockey Team. He is a leader on and off the ice and helps inspire and coach the younger players on his team. One of the highlights of his playing career was when his league team, Avalanche, won their league and qualified for nationals. Adam was surprised when his team excelled within the tournament and advanced to the semi-finals. In a semi-final game Avalanche won in double over time, which allowed the team to compete within the finals. They didn’t win but still placed second within the country. His father, who is a very influential figure within his life, encourages Adam in all aspects of his life, including ice hockey, pushed him to become a stronger player. He recalls in 2006 when he was cut from a league team that he had anticipated playing on. While he was extremely disappointed and frustrated, he knew that he had to work on his playing ability and skills in order to get back on the team. His hard work has paid off. He has approximately 30 goals this season so far, and will easily help his team advance when they compete in states in the weeks to come. In the future, Adam hopes to attend Quinnipiac University, where he wants to major in business. Even though he is unsure as to whether he will play on Quinnipiac’s team, he knows that ice hockey will always be part of his life.

By Heather Shauger Jakelle is the leading scorer on Teaneck’s Girl’s Basketball Team. Currently, she has 373 points in her high school career, with 86 rebounds and 50 assists. Her family is one of the reasons why she has been able to grow into the player that she is. Had it not been for her mom’s constant encouragement she would not have pursued the sport with the passion she has today. She is the only girl among a family of boys. Her brothers also played an important role in her love for the game. Jakelle’s oldest brother, who currently is playing basketball in Texas, is the one who initially inspired her to start playing. Even though she was involved with hip hop and modern dancing, she would watch her brother play basketball on the court and wanted to participate within the sport. Today, it seems like the sport consumes many aspects of Jakelle’s life. In her spare time, she hangs out with her teammates or is practicing independently from practice. Not only does she bring her team together on the court, she also works to create team unity off the court. When they are playing poorly, she encourages the team by rapping for them or using her sense of humor. In the future, Jakelle would like to travel overseas to play basketball while pursuing an education in sports medicine or management.

Woods Continuing the Success of Cavos/Owls Wrestling Photo courtesy of Edward Kensik.

By Edward Kensik Emerson/Park Ridge veteran head wrestling coach Stan Woods looks back on his almost half-century of coaching in the sport and said that his biggest accomplishment came back in the 1960s. A fresh eyed young man came to Emerson via Randolph High School to take over the Emerson High School program during the school year of 1967-68. In the infancy of the sport at the Bergen County school, the team that year went 9-3 and won a league title with a team that had little if any wrestling knowledge. “They were all guys who played football and did not know wrestling,” said Woods. More than 40 years later, Woods


is still going strong and is now the New Jersey state record holder for coaches with 604 wins and broke the record held by Ralph Ross of Highland Regional of 601 wins. For the 2010-11 season his team finished with a 19-3 record. He reached the milestone of 600 victories on February 3 with a 72-3 victory over Tenafly. While some of the bigger powerhouses in wrestling have a large group of grapplers wrestle yearround, almost all of his wrestlers play other sports like junior Steven Schneider who is the Cavos quarterback. Woods has received wrestlers like sophomore Dallas Ulychich who played football in his freshman season, but has since dropped the sport, but for the vast majority of

the Cavos/Owls wrestlers like Schneider, the sport is not a 12-month endeavor. Unfortunately his team fell short of a Group 1 North 1 state title by losing to Kittatinny, 40-22, in the semi-finals. Over the more than 40 years at Emerson and now Emerson/Park Ridge he has accumulated 31 league championships and eight state sectional titles. While the wins in wrestling are nice, his biggest gratification from his years of coaching came from former wrestlers who were able to use their experience on the mat in various fields. “I had a student who was number one in his class at Emerson go on to MIT and said that his experience of not winning every match helped him,” recalls Woods. “He went from the best at Emerson to just one of the students at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology). He said that wrestling taught him even if you lose, you can go back out there and keep on trying and that helped him at MIT.” The veteran Emerson/Park Ridge head coach added that he also received feedback from Emerson graduates who went into the military and were in Iraq and Afghanistan. “They would tell me that if they can make it through the wrestling room that they could make it out there,” said Woods. While many will point to Woods’ coaching as the key to the Cavos success, he said that a big key to the success of the program is the junior wrestling programs in Emerson and Park Ridge. He did help start the Emerson junior program in the 70s. “Some of the fathers came to me to start a junior program,” said Woods. “I said that would be great and I would be happy to do it.” Along with the junior programs at the adjacent towns, another factor over the years has been the cooperative agreement with Park Ridge that came about in 1989 as the Park Ridge High School program could barely field a team and Emerson’s numbers were also dropping. At first Woods was not the biggest

fan of the cooperative, but that changed. Since then though several small schools have joined Emerson/ Park Ridge as coop programs like Hasbrouck Heights/Wood-Ridge, Palisades Park/Leonia, Becton/ Wallington and Glen Rock/Saddle Brook among others. With the team wrestling season over, Woods hoped to get a couple of wrestlers down to Atlantic City for the state individual finals. He has had a few wrestlers make the state final in a weight class, but never a state champion. That is something he still is working on. For Woods, his love for wrestling started at Roxbury High School in the 1950s even though he only wrestled there in his freshman and sophomore seasons. At that time it was only a club team and he decided to play basketball during his junior and senior seasons. He picked up wrestling at East Stroudsburg University for four years and graduated in 1961. Heading back to New Jersey he wanted to teach and coach wrestling, and eventually became an assistant coach at Randolph. After two years at Randolph, his aunt, who was the secretary to the Emerson High School principal at the time, told him about an opening at Emerson. That was in the 1960s and it started an era that is still going. But Woods never thought he would still be coaching as the season turned to 2010-11. “When I started I was a young kid,” said the 71-year-old Woods who has four daughters and one son, Dean, who played football and wrestled at Emerson. For Woods he keeps going and going at Emerson High School.

Undergraduates Shine During Girls Semi-Finals By Dan Cappello IHA BEATS RAMAPO 41-30 TO ADVANCE TO JAMBOREE FINALS Immaculate Heart Academy (22-0) hasn’t lost a game all season. But Ramapo, who came into Saturday’s game at Ramapo College with one of North Jersey’s best players, senior guard Sarah Halejian, and a solid 19-2 record, didn’t care—despite losing to IHA 5247 earlier in the season. IHA’s game plan all season has been simple: get the ball to junior center Raquel Scott, whose powerful body has commanded the boards all season. Ramapo’s goal then also was easy: eliminate the passing lanes to Scott. And Ramapo’s six-foot one-inch junior center Kasey Woetzel did just that; keeping Scott to only

six points. But IHA head coach Steve Silver knows there is more to his team than one dominating center. “If teams are going to focus on the inside,” Silver said. “Then we are going to take what they give us.” IHA turned to their outside shooters to make up for the lost production inside. Freshman, Izzy McMahon, did everything she could coming off the bench to keep the game close. “She is an outstanding shooter,” said Silver. “As she becomes more comfortable on the floor we look to her to pick up the slack.” McMahon hit a pair of three’s at the end of the first half to keep her team within striking distance; heading to the break trailing 21-17. Then, she hit another pair of three’s in the fourth quarter to help her team take

their first lead since the early minutes of the 1st quarter. “I have worked so hard to get here,” said McMahon, a Clarkstown, New York native, who finished the game with 12 points. “Just because we are here doesn’t mean I can stop. I have to work even harder now.” Ramapo dominated every quarter except that last one. All game Halejian struggled to land

HOLY ANGELS STUN TEANECK WITH 78-70 WIN IN OVERTIME A year ago, Teaneck (19-1) suffered a heart breaking loss to the Academy of Holy Angels (19-3) in the semi-finals of the Bergen County Jamboree. This year, in front of a packed crowd at Ramapo College, Teaneck had one thing in mind— payback. But nobody said getting revenge would be easy. And despite out rebounding, out stealing and out scoring AHA in the first half, their lack of endurance caught up with them by the end of the game. “I kept telling them today: you are the better conditioned

team,” said Holy Angels head coach Sue Liddy. “We knew what their pace was going to be.” The game got off to a blazing start. Both teams exploded up and down the court with numerous takeaways and fast breaks. Teaneck wreaked havoc on the boards, with senior center Olivia Logan and freshman Kayla Gibbs dominating the rebounding. But the big star was Teaneck’s junior guard Jakelle-King Gilchrist, who finished the first half with 20 points and gave her team a comfortable 11 point lead going into the break. When both teams came out to start the second half, however, it was AHA that carried the intensity. “The second half we ran the game plan the way it was supposed to be run,” said Liddy. “There is a way to take care of their pressure and if you can take care of their pressure and take care of the ball you are going to get layups.” The star on the other side of the court was sophomore guard Melanie Lockett. Her second half performance proved to be

SPORTS • FITNESS • WELLNESS too much for Teaneck. “We came out with so much energy,” said Lockett, who finished the game with 33 points and went 16-18 on the free throw line. “Nobody believed that we could beat Teaneck and we had to prove to everybody that we could. They are really fast but we just had to slow down the game and play our game.” Holy Angels outscored Teaneck 22-6 in the 3rd quarter to take their first lead of the game. Seniors Jaclyn Jerkovich and Kasheema Besley combined for 24 points, and sophomore Amanda Fields dominated the boards, taking away the control that Teaneck had in the first half. However, Teaneck refused to go down quietly. They battled back in the 4th quarter and a critical offensive rebound and layup by Logan with less than 10 seconds to play sent the game into overtime. In overtime, Teaneck scored first, but then Lockett took over. She went seven for seven from

The upcoming Jamboree finals matchup between IHA and AHA has the making of a potential classic. This will be the fourth time the two teams have played each other this season, with IHA holding an impressive 3-0 record. “We know each other very well,” says Liddy. “There are no secrets.” If AHA can play as aggressive as they played against Teaneck, they have a great chance of pulling off the upset. The game will be played at 2:00p.m. February 26th at Ramapo College. “Everyone thinks we are the underdogs,” says Lockett. “If you beat a team three times it doesn’t matter. Only the next game matters.”

In the Zone


with Myasia Jacobs

By Dan Cappello Less than a week after setting a New Jersey record in the 60-meter dash with a 7.41 seconds performance, Myasia Jacobs returned to running drills and preparing for her next competition. Her finish in the 60 meter not only broke a state record, it’s also the best finish in the country this year. Not bad, especially when you consider that she accomplished this after flying 18 hours to Osaka, Japan to compete with the U.S. Junior National Team in a Germany-Japan-USA Trilateral Friendly. She may arguably become the most decorated and accomplished track athlete New Jersey has ever seen. But running wasn’t always something she longed to do. In fact, if it wasn’t for her mother, she would have spent more time running away from the sport than embracing it. “At first I didn’t want to do it,” said the junior from Paramus Catholic.“Then my mother made me, but I still didn’t like it. But then freshman year I started liking it more after I won states. I love it now.” Jacob’s is the fourth girl in New Jersey history to repeat as Meet of Champions winner in the 100 and 200 meter. She holds the second best record in the 100-meter dash with an 11.48 seconds finish. On top of all the records, she received 2009 and 2010 All County 1st Team honors for her performance in both indoor and outdoor track. She is the indoor state group champion in the 55-meter and 400meter; and the AAU National Champion in the 100-meter dash. Colleges are salivating at the chance to sign her, and those schools include the powerhouses of Oregon, Florida and LSU.

But beating records and achieving honors is just one aspect of running track that Jacobs loves. Since her sophomore year at Paramus Catholic, when she immerged as a legitimate track star, Jacobs has had the opportunity to travel the world to compete. Last year, she traveled to Singapore to join Team U.S.A. in the Youth Olympics. “There was like 250 countries and it was like the regular Olympics for our age group,” said Jacob’s, who won the silver medal in the 100-meter and a gold medal in the sprint medley. “That was a really good experience.” The 17-year-old Paterson native has experienced plenty of success, but it has not affected her jovial attitude. She jokes around with other athletes and her trainer. But come time for competition, Jacobs knows how to get in the zone. “The day of my race I’m away in my corner doing my drills and doing my stretches,” she said. “I keep to myself so I can get focused.” Jacob’s has set numerous personal goals for the rest of this winter season and the upcoming spring season. “I want to finish the season off by breaking the record in the 60 meter, again,” Jacobs said. “I want to be the state champ in the 55 and National Champion in the 60. In the spring I want to prepare for the 100 and 200.” Jacobs’ fun and cheerful attitude disguises the superior athlete that lies within. Her speed and strength may take her to places few will ever experience. But Jacobs takes everything one meet at a time. “When I’m on the line I take one deep breath and close my eyes,” she said. “Once that gun goes off, I give it all I got.” page 29





Walking Your Way to a Better You Walk the Dog

By Dan Cappello We all have busy schedules. Maybe you are a working mom or full-time parent with a complete load of soccer games and Boy Scout meetings and you just don’t have time to exercise. We understand how you feel. There never seems to be enough hours in a day to get everything accomplished, especially when it comes to your mental and physical health. Exercise has proven that it is an effective way to keeping

your mind and body feeling vibrant and healthy. But who has time to go to the gym every day? Not you, right? Well, forget the gym. There are enormous benefits to just taking a walk. Walking can help you keep your blood pressure down. It can fend off diabetes and heart disease. It can even help alleviate stress. And it doesn’t take a lot of walking to get the benefits.

Yes, it is easier to just kick open the back door and let your dog run around in the backyard. But take 15 minutes in the morning and evening to walk your dog around the neighborhood. This is a great way to start and end your day. Plus, your dog will love you even more.

Go for a Hike If you are lucky enough to live near a park like the Palisades Interstate Park or Ringwood State Park, then throw on some hiking boots and enjoy Mother Nature. Walking on dirt trails is better for your knees and the fresh air and natural surroundings will help ease your stress and balance your mind, body and spirit.

Find a Buddy If you are a full-time mom, try finding another mom in your neighborhood to team up with. Pick a time to meet every day to go for a nice healthy stroll. Maybe you can walk to pick up your kids at school together, or just around the neighborhood. Start small by walking for 30 minutes and increase your time every week.

Here are five tips that can help you get started.

5 Tips for


Your Family to

Eat Healthier By Dan Cappello Getting your family to eat healthier has to start in your kitchen. Forget about what restaurants are the healthiest or what the best fast food choices are, if you want to get you and your family on the right track to better health, it begins at home. Getting your family to eat healthier won’t be an easy task. It takes time and patience. But by incorporating these tips slowly into your families eating habits you will be changing their lives forever.

Mince Vegetables Pull out your food processor, swipe the dust off of it and throw in the veggies. It can be difficult to get kids to eat their vegetables. But by mincing them you can add vegetables to nearly everything. Mix it into soup, mashed potatoes, pasta sauce and even add it to the top of pizza!

Fruit with Breakfast Cereals, waffles and pancakes are filled with sugar, carbs and calories. If your family is used to eating only these items for breakfast, it may be hard to get them to change. But try cutting their breakfast meals in half and offer fruit to make up the difference. Freshly cut strawberries and bananas are filling and go well with most breakfast meals. Also blueberries go well in cereal and yogurt and they are filled with heart-healthy antioxidants.

Half Turkey and Half Beef Let’s face it, one of the easiest meals to please an entire family is the American classic—the hamburger. Now, you may not get your family to make the immediate switch from beef to turkey, but start with half and half. Using a package of ground beef and ground turkey, make your own burger paddies using half of each kind of meat. Your family won’t notice the difference and before you know it you can eliminate that fatty beef altogether.

Eat Whole Wheat Switching from a white loaf of bread to whole wheat is not enough. There are whole wheat waffles, bagels, pasta, wraps and more. Get rid of white bread and train your family that whole wheat is the only way.

One Seafood Dinner a Week This may be the hard one. Not every family is used to eating seafood on a regular basis. But try designating one dinner a week to a seafood meal. Try different recipes and diverse kinds of seafood, such as tilapia, cod and salmon. Seafood is filled with omega-3 fatty acids and protein and is an important part to a healthy diet.
