Great Teams at Chelsea

Download PDF for this date

teams have been Jewish. Last year Chelsea high school won the state title. The captain Steve Stavisky, and Sol Nechten, another Jewish basketeer, were named all-New England.

“This year’s team is composed of an all-Jewish five. Thus far it has defeated the best teams in this section of the country. It has suffered much abuse from their Gentile opponents on this ground. The team consists of co-captains Nechten and Manny Abrams, Abe Perkins, Irving Uchenick, and Jacob Noe.”

Nechten, a forward, is a six-footer, who is fast and dependable. Can be relied on in a pinch and has saved many a game.

Manny Abrams, another forward, is a flashy player. He excels in sinking shots that are almost impossible to make….

Abe Perkins, a six-footer who weighs 215 popnds, is a marvel in the bucket. Only four points have been scored against him this season and he is considered the best center in the state.

The steady playing of the guards, Uchenik, and Jake (“a thousand times”) Noe, are an important factor in Chelsea’s success.”

Thanks, Maurice, let’s hear from you again.
