LA CROSSE, Wis., May 10, 2021 – Western Technical College announced Wednesday the formation of a new Esports team, competing in the National Junior College Athletic Association Esports (NJCAAE) league this fall.

The NJCAAE consists of over 60 two-year colleges across the United States, competing in games such as Rocket League, Super Smash Bros., NBA 2K21, and Call of Duty. Competition includes nine weeks of queue-based Swiss-style play where participants play one match per week, per title. Top performers are invited to a single-elimination bracket at the end of each term.

“We are excited about provided Western students the opportunity to participate in Esports, learn more about gaming, and compete on a national level,” said Ryan Monroe, Athletics Manager at Western.
