DANBURY, Conn. – The Marist College Red Foxes claim the inaugural Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) League of Legends eSports title after defeating the Drew University Rangers.

This is the first virtual tournament hosted by the Conference where eight teams squared off for three days of gaming. The championship match was streamed live via Twitch and Stevenson University came in third place after topping St. Peter’s College. SUNY Canton, Canisius College and Mansfield University were among the other institutions that competed.
