“We were so excited to host this competition because we were able to showcase the newest eSports space at any CT Higher Ed Institution,” said Director of Recreation Mike Medina, MBA ‘10.
“The investment that was made last year to create this space has benefited our five eSports titles and now has hosted the CIAC eSports Championships,” he said.
For the high school teams, this was an opportunity to compete in a state-of-the-art facility.
“Both the CIAC and the high school teachers and students loved the event and the ability to play in a high-level facility,” Medina added.
With this partnership, Quinnipiac students also had the opportunity to get involved in the action.
“Our students were able to be a part of the behind-the-scenes of an in-person eSports championship, most notably our students and alums were part of the live-stream broadcast for all three titles,” Medina said.
Earning championships is something Quinnipiac’s eSports team knows well, as they were crowned MAAC Champions earlier this year.
“Their expertise as players helped make this a smooth event,” Medina said.
