History was made Monday on the first day of the 2013 Maccabi Games and Artsfest in Orange County, CA, as Boulder swimmer Clara Dresselhaus took gold in the 200m medley relay.  In addition to Clara’s amazing achievement, the Boulder delegation was busy on and off the field with the girls soccer team playing two games and Sam Garelick’s  soccer team winning one of their two games.  Jared Schnee, playing with the Philadelphia roller-hockey team had one assist in his team’s one win.

On the Artsfest side,  singer Elyssa Hofgard was a featured soloist in the Artsfest showcase. All four of the Artsfest teens participated in JCC Cares, taking a few hours out of their busy schedule to take part in various community service projects in and around Orange County.
