The Blinn College esports team continued its run in the Collegiate Call of Duty League with a pair of Division II Southeast matches Monday.
The Buccaneers defeated Arkansas State University 3-0 before falling to Kennesaw State University 3-0.
Blinn is now 2-2 in the Southeast.
“It was a tale of two tapes today,” said Blinn assistant coach and Call of Duty manager Ryan Lucich. “We started out with a dominant performance against Arkansas State, easily taking every map, but it was the exact opposite against Kennesaw State and we just couldn’t get anything going. Going into it, we knew they were a strong team and were at the top of the standings, but even then, they played better than we expected. They had some really good setups and played off of one another flawlessly, both things that we can learn from and add into our arsenal.”
Next up for the Bucs Call of Duty squad is the opener of its NJCAA Esports slate. Blinn will battle Guilford Technical College at 7:15 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 13
Blinn has competed in intercollegiate athletics since 1903 and captured 45 NJCAA national championships since 1987.
