Here’s what happened last week, and what is coming up!

Apex: Legends

Husky Apex placed third last Saturday in the fourth week of Octane Collegiate group stages. A repeat podium finish bodes well for Tech’s chances to advance in the tournament.

This Saturday, Tech returns to the fifth and final week of group stages.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Tech is seeded second in the tournament and is given a bye through the first round of the tournament. The Huskies face the winner of RIT White and Kennesaw State on Saturday. If they win, they then have a round-of-four match on Sunday. If the Huskies can win Sunday, they punch a ticket to the National Finals in Indianapolis on April 30.

Rocket League

The B team faces RIT in the round of four on April 10 in its conference championship tournament. The JV squad fell the last time these two teams met, so Huskies have their work cut out for them.

The varsity squad faces Brewton-Parker College in the round of 16 of the NACE Varsity Premier National Championship. If they win, their next match will be Saturday in the round of eight. After that, Sunday is the round of four to decide who heads to Indianapolis for the finals on April 29.

Saturday, Tech took second in the Great Lakes Collegiate Rocket League LAN Championship at Cleary University. The Huskies started the day looking unstoppable, taking down Michigan-Flint 3-0, Grand Valley State 3-1, and St. Clair 4-1. The Saints then fought back through the lower bracket to win game 7 in overtime to reset the bracket. Tech drew the final match out six games, but ultimately St. Clair demonstrated why they are heading to the CRL World Championship by taking the win.

League of Legends

This is the final week of the regular season. Tech faces Cleary Tuesday and Cornell Thursday.

The Huskies continue to work through the Teemo Cup with another win! The Lions of Lambton College put up a fight, but ultimately Tech came out on top 2-1. The League of Legends team takes on Illinois Tech on Saturday.

Tech’s League of Legends team is participating in the Bandwidth Bowl, hosted by Ferris State, on Saturday.

Overwatch 2

Tech’s Overwatch 2 team is participating in the Bandwidth Bowl, hosted by Ferris State, on Saturday.

Super Smash Brothers: Ultimate

The Smash team first faces Full Sail University on Thursday in the round of 16 of the NACE National Championship.
