MIT Engineers Its Players To European Maccabi Games

MIT water polo players Miller Geschke, Ory Tasman and Daniel Yahalomi will represent the USA on its water polo team at the 15th European Maccabi Games between July 28th and August 7th in Budapest, Hungary.

The water polo team includes 11 athletes who are part of Maccabi USA, a team of over 200 American athletes who will join the other 2,000 Jewish athletes from 29 countries, participating in 22 different sports.

Geschke, a 2018 American Collegiate Water Polo Coaches All-American, led the MIT Engineers with 58 goals and 28 assists this past season and led MIT to a #2 ranking in the Collegiate Water Polo Association's Division III national poll.

Yahalomi played for MIT between 2014 and 2017 while Tasman was also an All-American in 2015 who still holds MIT's single season and career record for goals that he scored between 2012 and 2015.

The European Games are a high-level athletic competition for Jewish athletes all over the world aimed at connecting Jews from the Diaspora. They are hosted by the European Maccabi Confederation and conducted in cooperation with Maccabi World Union. They are held every four years, two years after the Maccabiah is held.
