Kat Wilberding

WEST HAVEN–On Saturday, April 18, RECSports held the annual Table Tennis tournament at the Beckerman Recreation Center. Eight contestants battled in single elimination play to be this year’s ping pong champion. Thank you David Rodrigues, Eric Wong, Sam Claver, and Kyle Barrett for your participation and we hope to see you come out again next year. Adamo Defeilce and Farhad Mekael showed strong skills by placing third and fourth respectively. Ayub Mirza did a great job and came in second after playing a spirited final. But it was Neeharika Irrinki who rose above the rest. Congratulations on your well deserved victory, Neeharika. Thank you to everyone that came out.

In other RECSports’ news, the Season Four championship is coming up next week. All of the intramural leagues will be having playoffs and championships, so be sure to come out and support your friends. Check the website and/or the bulletin board outside Equipment Issue for the playoff schedules for each sport. Champions of each division will get a t-shirt and photo. Also, remember, following the end of Season Four the Quest for the Charger Cup will come to an end for this year. The points will be tallied and a champion of the Quest announced. Participants keep this in mind as you finish up Season Four.

That’s all for this week. Have a great spring weekend and check back next week for more news.
