The sounds of students hitting ping pong balls could be heard throughout Allyn Hall Gymnasium when it hosted the OCC Table Tennis Club's tournament earlier this month. Sixteen students squared off in the hotly contested competition which was won again by reigning champion Joe Fratianni. Rashawn Sullivan earned second place honors and Joe Ocker finished in third.
Winners were awarded 3-D printed trophies and medals which were manufactured in the Makerspace in Coulter Library. Other prizes included gift cards from amazon, Walmart, and Dunkin. OCC President Casey Crabill also earned a medal at the tournament when she defeated robot "Ping Punk." All competitors were treated to a pizza party.
The Table Tennis Club meets (and plays table tennis) every Monday during college hour (11:15am-12:15pm) in the Allyn Hall Gym. Another tournament will be held in April 2020. More information on the club and the next tournament is available by contacting Coach Tim Saka at [email protected]
