Princeton Special Sports recognizes players and volunteers

Princeton Special Sports honored players and volunteers at the group’s annual barbeque on June 25.

James “Big Game” Gater of Kendall Park was awarded the Princeton Special Sports 2017 Jack Rutledge Cup, which is awarded annually to the player who has demonstrated the exceptional determination and sportsmanship of former PSS player Jack Rutledge, who died in 2008 after an illness.

PSS also honored student volunteer coordination Ann Diver, who relocated from Princeton recently, and retiring senior head coach John Rutledge. Both received dedicated service wards for their many years volunteering with Princeton Special Sports.

PSS also presented a dedicated service award to former Princeton Recreation Department program supervisor Joe Marrolli, who is now the director of recreation and senior services in Pemberton Township.
