WORCESTER, MA—May 11, 2021— Another great season has ended for the fledgling Wyverns League of Legends E-Sports team, and another championship is added to their impressive record. The Quinsigamond Community College team played their final games on April 25, winning handily 3-0 over Bunker Hill Community College in the Region XXI Championship E-Sports game.  The Wyverns finished the season with a 5-1 record, echoing the record from the fall 2020 season and even mirroring their fall championship win against Bunker Hill 3-0 in the finals.

“The team of 12 came together this season. Week in and week out, they dedicated time and effort to improving their skills. Each player got a chance to start in a game throughout the season, and each and every player stood out,” said Wyverns E-Sports Coach Nathaniel "Nate" Mello.

“I am so proud of what this team was able to accomplish this year and I hope to continue our success in the future with players new and old,” Coach Mello said.


QCC began its E-Sports team in the summer of 2020, taking part in a League of Legends collegiate competition. This is a highly competitive, fast paced, action-strategy online game. When not in a global pandemic the game is often played in-person, in an arena setting.

QCC’s Athletic Director Lisa Gurnick said the E-Sports team has made a superb addition to the Wyvern sports teams and Coach Mello has been an important part of the team’s success.

“Coach Mello was fantastic and he was the ‘sports announcer’ for all three of these final games. He presented the play-by play action. It was great for anyone to follow who didn’t know anything about the game League of Legends but wanted to follow along,” Ms. Gurnick said. “The team has played amazing all season and has worked hard to get where they are. We are incredibly proud of our newest Wyvern team.”

  • Alexis Fluegel
  • Samuel Marshall
  • Trevor Dodson
  • Alex Vongkhamheuang
