"This weekend our Overwatch and League of Legends squads showed tremendous improvement. The LoL matchup vs. Harvard was highly anticipated for us. Coach Adam and his team prepared heavily. While we ultimately lost the best out of 3 match-up, we pulled off a great victory in the first game and our players were ecstatic. The OW squad moves to 2-4 after this weekend's matches. We have a late addition to our team and we hope to get more W's. Our goal is to constantly improve our teamwork and gameplay. I believe we are doing just that." – Head Coach Teddy Delaney
