Hawks Esports Team Defeats Dartmouth

by Tracey A. Maine on March 1, 2021

In late-February, the Hocking College Hawks esports team emerged victorious in a match over first-time opponent Dartmouth College that ended in a score of three maps to zero maps.

Team captain Nathaniel Adkins said the match was “very competitive.”

“I believe (the match) showed off the strengths of our team well and was a big win for us, seeing as Dartmouth is an Ivy League school,” he added.

Adkins credited the win to the team’s strategy, which he described as “play smart and at our best.” 

“This strategy has allowed our team to be adaptable and cool under pressure, even in tough situations,” he explained.
