Sari Levy, a graduate of Great Neck North High School’s Class of 2009, along with Team USA Women’s Epee Squad toppled the Russians in the semifinal round of the 18th Maccabiah Games held this past July in Israel. During the final round the girls put up a strong fight against the Israeli National Team which was comprised entirely of Olympic athletes. Sari and her fellow Maccabiah Teammate Diana Tsinis both belong to North Shore Fencers Club where Vladimir Gofman is head coach. Vladimir was extremely proud that two out of the four members selected for the USA Women’s Epee Fencing Team train in his facility. Attending the Maccabiah Games in Israel was a life altering experience both on and off the fencing strip. Sari said “aside from soaking in all of the cultural elements of Israel, the Maccabiah Games offered me the opportunity to meet some of the best Jewish athletes from around the globe spanning a total of more than sixty countries. Overall, through this experience, I’ve acquired a new appreciation for what it means to be a Jewish athlete competing on the world stage during the 21st century.” Sari will be fencing for the Yale Bulldogs this coming fall.
