Yesterday, Becker College hosted the Season One MSAA Massachusetts High School Esports State Championship. The championship was the culmination of the season which kicked off this past February with teams across the Commonwealth competing each week in League of Legends and Rocket League.

The Rocket League championship best-of-7 match featured Oliver Ames High School versus Shrewsbury High School. Shrewsbury High won the title 4-0. The League of Legends championship best-of-3 match featured Lowell High School versus Shrewsbury High. Shrewsbury High won the title 2-0.

“Hosting the high school esports championship was a real honor,” said said Timothy Loew, Executive Director of MassDiGI, the Massachusetts Digital Games Institute at Becker College. “Seeing young people competing at a high level with so much passion and dedication is what it’s all about.”

In 2018 Massachusetts, through MSAA, became one of the first states to offer esports through PlayVS, the official NFHS partner for high school esports.
