Princeton Senior Resource Center players excelled again at the 2016 NJ Senior Olympics table tennis event, which was held Saturday Sept. 10 in Woodside.
Thrice weekly, for the better part of the day, PSRC is home turf for a multicultural score of serious “pongers”, who enliven the gym in the Suzanne Patterson Building with enthusiastic, energetic play. Many of those took home medals at the event in Woodside.
In women’s singles, Susan Bu and Cally Hanawalt won gold medals in their respective age groups. In men’s singles, George Sheng, Takeshi Kitagawa, and Huasheng Jiang won gold in their respective age groups. Ray Woodfield won silver and Henry Acselrod bronze in their respective groups.
In doubles, PSRC teams swept all categories. In the women’s doubles category, Susan Bu and Tak Yue won gold medals in their age group, and Cally Hanawalt teamed with Joann Spring of Tom’s River to win gold. In men’s doubles, Johnny Ho and Takeshi Kitagawa, George Sheng and Ray Woodfield, and Henry Acselrod and Caesar Primus all won gold medals in their respective age groups. In mixed doubles, Susan Bu and Johnny Ho, Cally Hanawalt and George Sheng, and Tak Yue and Caesar Primus all took home the gold.
Other PSRC regulars Elena Greene, Laura Hawkins, Sam Voleti, and Ali Zomorodi, along with Caesar’s wife Marci and former PSRC player Ajay Sardar and his family, were there to cheer from the stands. 
