In front of a capacity crowd at Akiva Day School the FJA Cagers battled back from an early deficit to defeat the Pioneers 42-37.

Led by senior Adam Schlussel’s 28 points the Jags would battle their crosstown foes the entire second half with numerous lead changes throughout. Finally, with 2 minutes to play in the game the Jags would take the lead for good and hold on during a ferocious rally by the Akiva team. The victory versus Akiva would be the Jaguars fifth win in their last seven games as Frankel now heads into the MHSAA District playoffs at Bishop Foley High School on Monday, March 7th at 7:00 pm.

Girls Basketball Season Comes to an End


The Jaguars girls basketball season came to an end on Monday night during the first round of the MHSAA District playoffs. The Jags would venture to Lutheran Northwest High School to take on the very talented and district playoff favorite Knights. The Frankel team battled from the very beginning but had no answer for the size of Lutheran Northwest. The game brought an end to a very enjoyable and exciting season for the Jags. The girl’s team will return all but one player next year, as we had to say goodbye to Samantha Darmon. We want thank her for the commitment and dedication that she displayed over the last four years. We all expect great things for Samantha in the future.
