Winter 2020 High School Scholastic League of Legends Tournament Playoff Roundup (5/19)

On Wednesday, May 20 at 3:30 PM EST, we have two championship teams going up against each other in the Affiliate Bracket match. The match will be streamed live on the NASEF Twitch Channel.

From the Florida bracket, we have the Stanton Blue Devils who dropped a total of four games during their playoff run and won their final match 3-2 against the Cypress Bay Lightning 1.

Facing off against them is Chambersburg A from the PA bracket. During their playoff run, Chambersburg A dropped only two games and swept their championship match 3-0 against the MT Blue Streaks.

Leo Espinoza (EspinLeo) and Josh Plummer (SOULSS) are both receiving scholarship money from Juniata College next year.

Chambersburg is located in South Central Pennsylvania, 30 miles west of Gettysburg. Fun fact! Chambersburg is the only northern town to be held for ransom and burned during the civil war.

Next year Chambersburg will be opening an esports arena at the Chambersburg Area Senior High School (CASHS). We should be able to host 5 league teams and 4 overwatch squads for next year.
