in late November. It has picked up the
pace this month to twice-weekly, three-
A major reason for the increased
practice time is that tri-captains Taylor
Henkin (Bloomfield Hills Andover) and
Jessica Stern (Andover) were in Israel
for six weeks earlier this summer, and
twins Rebecca and Sophiea Garfinkel
(Andover) were in camp in Wisconsin.
Rounding out Detroit Blue's roster
are tri-captain Carly Amhowitz (Walled
Lake Western), Jolie Greenstone
(Andover), Heidi Meyers (Walled Lake
Western) and Jessica Naftaly (West
"I think our strength will be hitting,
but you never know," Click said. "It's
always an adventure'
Click was an assistant coach at
Plymouth Canton High School last sea-
son, and he'll be an assistant at Walled
Lake Northern High School next winter.
David Fink, 59, is Detroit's table ten-
nis coach, but he admits he isn't an
expert in the sport. Good friend Harold
Friedman, the Detroit Maccabi Games
chair, told Fink about the job one day
last fall when they were playing golf.
"I'm retired and looking for new
things to do, so I thought I'd give coach-
ing a try because I'd be able to give back
to the community' Fink said. "I have
more of an administrative role with the
table tennis team. The real coach of our
team is (19-year-old assistant coach)
Andy Korby, who was a three-time
Maccabi gold medal winner. Andy tells
me our best player is Sam Corey'
While Fink wants his 19 table tennis
players (18 boys and one girl) to enjoy
the Maccabi experience and have fun
meeting Jewish youths from around the
country and the world, he was serious
about their Mitzvah Day volunteer work
in mid-June at the Yad Ezra kosher food
pantry in Berkley. He also wants them to
get the most out of Wednesday's Day of
Caring and Sharing.
"It's important for these kids to
understand that people are in need and
can use their help:' Fink said.
Harold Friedman said the tough eco-
nomic times have affected the Detroit
Games. "We were originally going to
host 2,500 visiting athletes, but we'll
only have 2,100," he said. "We have a
great local delegation, but a larger-
than-usual number are on scholarship.
Some of the venues are charging more
than we anticipated, and fundraising
has been difficult.
"But we've made it to the Games, and
we're ready to show the athletes and
the whole Detroit Jewish community
something they will be proud of?'
In addition to Detroit's 500-plus ath-
lete contingent, Windsor will have 13
athletes in the Detroit Games and Ann
Arbor will have five. ❑
