“2019 was a year of explosive growth for the esports teams at PHCC with new games and new players,” says Henderson. “This year, I look forward to watching the growth – and performance – of our teams continue to rise.”

In 2019, PHCC’s esports teams competed in two in-season tournaments and several invitational games around the region. PHCC’s League of Legends, Overwatch, and Rocket League teams played in the Shenandoah University’s invitational. The Rocket League team also traveled to Richmond Speedway for their esports invitational.  One ePatriot, Breanna Wheeling, competed against several other community colleges in the National Junior College Athletic Association’s inaugural Super Smash Brothers league.
