 Over the course of the past two weeks your Loy Norrix esports teams have enjoyed an undefeated record, and this week was no different. The Overwatch team dispatched both opponents by identical 2 games to 0 score lines. This leaves them with a record of 14 and 1 loss across all competitions, including an undefeated record in the state of Michigan. The Super Smash Brothers team was similarly dominant, defeating all opponents and finishing up the regular season with 10 wins and 1 loss as a team. Both teams have qualified for the upcoming playoffs on December 7th at Northwood University where they will compete with teams from across the state for the chance to win the first ever state championship in each game. Well done Knights!
