NETC Esports Team Delivers Impressive 2nd Week Performance

Thursday, October 15th, 2020

Northeastern Technical College (NETC) Trailblazers are making strides in their 2nd Week of Esports matches. Curry Cannon was in action on Tuesday night with Super Smash Bros. After a dominating week one performance in his first Super Smash Bros match, Cannon was impressive winning 4-1 over an opponent from North Central Missouri College in Trenton, MO. This win moves Cannon to 2-0 for the season. The Top 32 from over 200 players will compete in the postseason. With only six matches left, Cannon is positioning himself to do just that.

"We expect Cannon will carry his momentum into his matches next Tuesday," said Tyler Nolan, NETC Esports coach. "He is establishing himself as a fierce competitor."

Cameron Polston placed Top 10 in NETC Trailblazer's first official Fortnite match. Polston finished 9th among the 50 competitors competing this week. Polston, finishing 9th in his debut, has a promising start to the season. To compete in the postseason, a player must finish Top 5 in at least 1 of 9 matches this season. Colleges will compete in Fortnite matches weekly on Monday evenings. Player Stats will refresh each week.

Both Polston and Cannon are looking to secure spots in the postseason next week.

In general, sports provide many benefits to colleges by improving student engagement and promoting the college brand. For more information about the Northeastern Technical College Esports program, visit www.netc.edu or call (800) 921-7399.
