On May 17th, the North Bergen eSports teams competed in their first eSport tournament held at the Helix facility. NBHS put two teams fourth in both Overwatch and League of Legends. Our teams competed against High Tech High School, Memorial, and Weehawken in bracket competition. In Overwatch, one of our Bruins Teams went undefeated to claim 1st place and the second Bruins team claimed to 3rd place after a defeat to High Tech twice. In League of Legends, the first Bruins team went undefeated taking 1st place and the other team took 3rd place after two losses.
During the competition, which was cast live on Twitch, colleges such as Rutgers and NYIT were present scouting a few of our players and allowing the coaches, Mr. Ensman, Mr. Enrico, Mr. Estela, and Dr. Keshishian some opportunity to network. They were even offered the opportunity to scrimmage the NYIT team! Hopefully, they can get the opportunity to do the same with Rutgers, who just won the collegiate championship in Houston.
