In its first year, Immaculata’s Esports team won the Atlantic East Conference Rocket League championship last night. The Mighty Macs defeated Cabrini 3-0 to remain unbeaten in Atlantic East play while also earning a bid to the Collegiate Esports National Championship Tournament beginning on April 29.
Stephen Bradley, Jacob Fitzgerald, and Zachary Malcolm got the start for Immaculata once again on Monday evening. Malcolm, who had entered play tied with Fitzgerald as the Macs leading goal scorer, had a huge night for the Macs as he scored a team-best 11 goals in the triumph.
“If you would have said to me eight months ago when I first joined the team that we’d be conference champs in our first season, I would’ve told you you were crazy,” Coach Sean Dwyer said regarding the championship. “I cannot be more proud of these deserving athletes.” Dwyer is especially pleased with how his starters have transitioned to playing as a team as opposed to individual play.
“We’re not done here. We still have some more to go this year,” Dwyer added, referencing the upcoming national championship.
Congratulations to Coach Sean Dwyer and the entire Esports team.
