Maccabi Games an unforgettable experience for Wissahickon’s Sage Stelzer

Sage Stelzer came home with much more than she had left with.

There were plenty of tangible spoils, none more prominent than the silver medal she’d helped the United States U18 girls’ soccer team win in the 21st Maccabi Games but also a month’s worth of experiences that meant just as much. The Wissahickon senior couldn’t have asked for much more from her time spent competing and exploring in Israel last month.

“It was definitely a life-changing experience,” Stelzer said. “I didn’t fully know what to expect going into it, the try-out was a summer before and trying to figure out college, I wasn’t sure but once all of those things settled into place, I was there and I could just play, it was really fun.

“I was able to connect with so many people from different countries and to have that because of soccer and our religion was very cool.”
