NEW YORK, N.Y. – Senior Dmitri Lebedyev, of the men's tennis team, was inducted into the CoSIDA Academic All-District Men's At-Large team, on Thursday afternoon. Lebedyev earned this honor thanks to his achievements on the tennis court and in the classroom. 

 Lebedyev (Holon, Israel) went 12-3 in singles matches and 13-3 in doubles competition this season. He finished the year tied for first in the Skyline Conference in both total singles wins and #2 singles victories. The Holon resident led Yeshiva to three straight Skyline Conference championships. Last season, Lebedyev won at #2 singles and #3 doubles to help Yeshiva clinch the first NCAA postseason tournament win in school history.


 The senior has been named to the Skyline All-Conference First Team three times and earned Skyline Conference Player of the Week accolades just as many times during his illustrious career. This season, the mathematical economics major won at #2 singles against Division I Fordham University.


 Lebedyev has had a lot of success academically as well. He was named the Skyline Conference Men's Tennis Scholar-Athlete of the Year in 2015, and earned ITA Scholar-Athlete honors in 2014 and 2015. The graduating senior has been inducted into the Skyline Academic Honor Roll on two separate occasions and has a cumulative GPA of 3.88.


 Lebedyev led the Maccabees to another successful season in 2016, helping the team win its third straight conference title and automatic bid into the NCAA postseason tournament.

Tamir Hershko receives Outstanding Student Athlete Honor at University of California, Irvine

Statement from Tamir Hershko upon receiving the Lauds & Laurels Award for Outstanding Student Athlete at University of California, Irvine.  The junior is an Electrical Engineering major at the school.


‘I chose UCI because of the volleyball program, the family sense that I got in my visits, and the high academics. Also, after I found out that we can live on the beach, I was not going to give up on that.

What surprised once I got on campus was the culture and the special connection between alumni and current students. This is the kind of family sense that my culture was built on. Also, UCI is very welcoming to international students.

The international student office has helped me many times, plus there are some awesome engineering professors who have helped me a lot.

This year I have been selected as the Lauds & Laurels Outstanding Student-Athlete, which is a great honor. I am proud of what I am and where I came from, and this honor is a great reminder of my hard work in both academics and athletics.

My goal is that this achievement is inspiring to other international student-athletes and people in my home country of Israel.'

  Gilad Berman Helps Georgia Gwinnett Win NAIA Championship

The Georgia Gwinnett men's tennis team captured its third straight NAIA National Title on Saturday, defeating No. 3 Xavier (La.) 5-2 at the Mobile Tennis Complex.

"Achieving a three-peat has been the goal since day one of the season," stated GGC head coach Chase Hodges.  "We wanted to accept nothing but that and each match we were tested.  Coming back from a 2-1 deficit in doubles was tough, but our guys showed guts and grit and picked up four straight wins in singles to clinch the match.  I can't be more thankful as a coach to see these young men reach their best potential and pull off what is the making of a dynasty."

Georgia Gwinnett caps off the 2016 season with a perfect 26-0 record, maintaining the No. 1 ranking from beginning to end.  The 26-0 mark is a program-best that surpasses the 2014 season's 21-0 record and is the second undefeated season in GGC men's tennis history.
The Grizzlies fell behind 2-1 in doubles play Saturday as the lone GGC win came with the pair of Kevin Konfederak and Jordan Cox defeating Xavier's Thomas Setodji and Kevin Chaouat 9-8.

Faced with the 2-1 deficit at the break, the Grizzlies went back to battle and captured four consecutive singles matches to secure the 2016 National Title.

Junior Gilad Berman (Ramat Hasharon, Israel) tied the match at 2-2, winning the first singles match.  Berman defeated XU's Chaouat 6-1, 6-0 at No. 4 singles.



TULSA, Okla. –

On Thursday afternoon, The University of Tulsa's men's tennis 48th-ranked

player, Or Ram-Harel, dropped a 6-2, 7-5, 6-3 decision to Virginia Tech's 14th-ranked Joao Monteiro in the second round of the 2016 NCAA Division I Men's Tennis Singles Championship at the Michael D. Case Tennis Center.

Ram-Harel finished the 2015-16 season with an overall 11-14 singles record. He helped lead TU to a runner-up finish in the American Athletic Conference for the second consecutive season, and he was named to the 2016 American Athletic All-Conference Singles Team for the second time in his career. The talented junior improved his overall record to 1-2 in the NCAA Division I Men's Tennis Singles Championship.
"When I look back, I had a lot of ups and downs," Ram-Harel said. "When I started the year, I wasn't very good. I think my tennis through the year got better and better. In the middle of the semester, I kind of lost my way of fighting and the way I compete on the courts. But in the past month, I was able to find it again. To get back my tennis and the mentality, I think, allowed me to take the next step, but it just didn't happen today."

Or-Ram Harel was the highest ranking Israeli in NCAA college tennis this year, and made his second NCAA Championships in three years.  The best performance ever by an Israeli in NCAA tennis was by Michael Kogan of Tulane, who reached the finals in 2004.

I usually do not drop a ton of remarks, but I browsed a few of the comments on this page May 2016 TIB Newsletter.
I actually do have a few questions for you if you do not mind. Is it just me or does it seem like a few of the responses look as if they are left by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing on other online social sites, I would like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post.
Would you list of all of your social networking sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

Hello, just wanted to share with you that we had a great holiday at Marina de Bolnuevo in July of this year. We flew into Alicante and hired a car from the airport for the short drive to Bolnuevo. The beaches are fantastic, most of them awarded the Blue Flag. The cafes were great, with paella on the beach a delight and managed a trip to the nudist beach there. Very liberating. We also visited the Big Guns, The Roman Mines and the Sand sculptures. Will be returning there again in 2018. Thanks for reading Alicia.

Practice your bounce successfully pass. Performed properly, a inflatable bounce complete will get in touch with the getting person with the waistline. Try out jumping it about three-quarters for them. This all is dependent upon several elements.
