Esports has emerged as an extremely popular outlet for teenagers on multiple different platforms. In the Midstate, the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Esports Association looks to add some structure for students to complete in a meaningful way.
The group has organized high school teams into leagues to play two games: Overwatch and Rocket League. The teams will compete in an eight-week regular season before a playoff. Ultimately a state champion will be crowned in each of the games.
The PIEA wrapped up Week 4 of the first fall season in both games across five divisions: Colonial, Commonwealth, Keystone Penn and Susquehanna.
