Team is seeking to compete in The Scarlet Classic and needs “cheers” to get there

March 25, 2019—Marist’s new Overwatch eSports team is competing for a spot in The Scarlet Classic next month—and the team needs support in the form of “cheers.” The Scarlet Classic is the largest college eSports event on the east coast.


What’s a Cheer?

A cheer is a vote for the team. “It’s one vote, one person,” said Roger Norton, Dean of the School of Computer Science and Mathematics. “The more votes the Marist team gets, the more likely they are to make it to the playoffs.”


The team hopes to make it to the top 16 with the help of friends, family, and other supporters. Vote here: Voting closes on Monday, April 1.

eSports at Marist

eSports at Marist started with an informal League of Legends team, which became an official team in 2018 and went 6-0 in the first ever ECAC/MAAC League of Legends Tournament in Albany, NY, bringing home the 2018 Championship Trophy. Since this astonishing win in 2018, the Marist eSports group has added two additional official teams for both Overwatch and Hearthstone. The goal of the Marist eSports group is to continue growing by gaining support from Marist and its fans.


“By competing in various tournaments, we want to prove that even though we are a small school, we are still one of the best and deserve to be recognized. With this opportunity being given to us, we are hoping to be able to display the fruits of our hard work and dedication,” said team member Damion Neth ’21.
