Congratulations to PCA&D’s Overwatch Esports Teams, who all have qualified for the playoffs this season. This is the first season the College’s Peacocks have competed in NACE Starleague, a national collegiate league that combines a number of gaming titles. 

“Overall I’m very proud of all of our teams!” said coach Benjamin Farley, a 2021 PCA&D graduate in Animation & Game Art. “They all have worked diligently and practiced methodically.

“We are still learning, but making it to the playoffs is a huge win for us,” Farley added. “I think I speak for all of us when I say we are looking forward to the playoffs and beyond!”
