RE: eSports showcase with Neosho High School team
Neosho, MO – Crowder College eSports program will be hosting their first live match on Wednesday, May 5, 4:30pm, against the Neosho High School eSports team.

“I think this is an exciting opportunity for our students to showcase the hard work they have been putting in over the last three seasons. Several of my students that have been there since the beginning are graduating this semester, so it’s nice to be able to have an event like this to celebrate their success,” stated Jackson Lewis, Crowder College eSports manager. “If you have never had the chance to watch an eSports match in-person, this will be a great opportunity to come see what all the hype is about!”
Featured students are:

Tyler Carpenter (Currently in his 3rd season of playing Smash Bros for Crowder)
Dennis (Ethan) Harp (Currently in his 2nd season of playing Smash Bros for Crowder)
