The Pit organized a ping-pong tournament for 8 p.m. Sept. 16. The event had 54 participants, causing Jamie Keller, a Pit activities coordinator, to “scour” the internet for a bracket large enough to support the turnout, he said.

In addition to the participants, a cheering crowd and an “official” referee attended the event.

The majority of the contestants faced off over tables on the main floor of the Student Center. During the final heats for top placements, the matches moved down into the Pit itself and were darkly lit.

The following is a listing of the top three players.
