Tournament One Recap:

In the first tournament of 2015 ping-pong season, over 20 participants came together in the loft to play in the inaugural tourney. In this very competitive tourney, lots of new faces joined the ranks and the first four members qualified for the Pong Championship Series. Joshua Hentschel, Jacob Gomez, Josiah Greiner, and Kyle Taylor all made the semi-finals to put themselves into the final tourney.

The one seed Josh Hentschel prevailed as champion on the day and did not lose a single set. His toughest match as expected came in the finals against Jacob Gomez, 21-18, 21-13. After a bye, he defeated Mitchell Dominowski, Zac Schneider, and Kyle Taylor to round out the win column.

Jacob Gomez also had an extremely impressive tourney not allowing double digits until the facing Hentschel in the final. In his convincing performances, he beat Ian Andridge, John White and Josiah Greiner. Hentschel and Gomez were expected in the finals as the upset of the two seed Dominowski happened earlier in the tourney.

Dominowski, who was ranked number three in the preseason rankings lost to Josiah Greiner 21-12 in the most intriguing quarterfinal matchup of the day. He started off with a second round win beating Jack Somers, then went on to beat his own brother Mitchell as well as John White in the loser bracket. He ended up facing the same foe in Jack Somers in the 5th place match in which he prevailed in a tight fought match.

The third and fourth finishers were Josiah Greiner and Kyle Taylor respectively. Josiah Greiner and Kyle Taylor had an amazing third place marathon match with Josiah prevailing 21-13, 15-21, 21-11.

The next tourney is the invite only alumni tourney on January 5th.


Owen Postma and Jacob Gomez have been suspended for the next tourney January 12th because of a fabrication of a score in order to improve Owen’s ranking. Board member Jake Pajk said this in response to their appeal, “Cheating is not tolerated in any circumstance no matter the player, similar actions will be taken in any instance.”

Luke Delong is also under investigation for a false reporting of a score in the last tourney.

Biggest Moves: Up- Ian Andridge +21, Down- Luke Waskevich -23
