A Nice Jewish Catholic School Graduate

I was excited to find out that one of the stars of the Women's NCAA Champion Maryland Terps is Shay Doron - an Israeli.

Then I found out that she took uh... shall we say, unorthodox, path to the Final Four - she went to high school at a catholic high school basketball powerhouse.

It's a shame that there aren't any Yeshivas that put people in the NCAA. But then again, the focus of a Yeshiva should be education, and not basketball. Still, with what tuition costs these days, maybe we need to work on another avenue of getting scholarships for our kids.

I personally think that there should be bigger math team and science olimpiad scholarships!
