Season One of the new Esports State Championships, produced by PlayVS, concluded on May 16, 2019 with Lambert High School winning the League of Legends title and Pickens High School winning Rocket League. Congratulations to both teams.
For Lambert, the victory was a reversal of the Season Zero League of Legends final when the Longhorns were defeated by Mt. de Sales Academy 2 games to 1 in January. This time around, Lambert defeated Mt. de Sales 2-0 to win the title.
Pickens defeated Calvary Day School 4-0 to win the first Rocket League title. (Rocket League was added to the menu for Season One after Season Zero featured only League of Legends).
Seasons Three and Four will take place during the 2019-20 school year and information about how to register will be posted on the GHSA web site.
