PORT ANGELES — The Peninsula College Rocket League team of Nicholas Charters, Stuart Koehler and Drew Eckard posted a historic first win in the inaugural season of the school’s esports competition Thursday, stopping Zero Conditions 3-0 in dominant fashion.
“For the past several weeks, these three have worked so hard on improving their communication, mental game and defense,” said Pirates esports head coach Charlie Morrow. “It’s definitely paid off.”
The Pirate trio are 1-1 in Black Line Championship Series play and take on the University of Connecticut on Friday.
Peninsula College, which has teams competing in Overwatch, League of Legends and Rocket League, is completing its esports arena, which is shared with media classes and plans to invite fans and begin streaming games later this quarter.
