From being considered the underdog to claiming our crown at first place, our competitive Overwatch team has claimed the title of Open Division champions! We had an amazing bracket where we were undefeated up until the winners finals where we lost 4-0 to Maryville University. After that we fought our way through the losers bracket, winning losers finals and making it up to grand finals, where we would face Maryville University once more. They started off with one point seeing as they were in the winners seed, however, we showed just how much we wanted to come out on top in this first to four match.
Right from the first map, we came out strong and earned ourselves a point. However, we unfortunately lost the second map putting the score at 1-2. We weren't about to give up so easily though. We came back strong and dominantly won the next three maps taking the victory and ending with a final score of 4-2. After losing to Maryville 4-0 in winners finals we were able to catch our second wind and managed to get our revenge.
Our Overwatch team is just getting started. Winning Open Division was only the first step in our journey. Now we qualify for Contenders Trials! Except to see more out of us very, very soon. Contenders Trials begins March 8th, and we will keep you all posted! Thank you to everyone who came out and supported us today and yesterday. The team was so happy to see all of the support, thank you guys.
